Under the Sun (Under solen) (2000)
Critic Reviews for Under the Sun (Under solen)
Under The Sun is a decent, polished and rather coy romantic indulgence, just the kind of thing for people who like the idea of the farm but can't abide the dirt.
It's like an Ingmar Bergman parody of what used to be racy about Swedish cinema -- sexy and sentimental and absolutely gorgeous to look at.
What's most surprising -- and enjoyable -- is Under the Sun's earnestness and simplicity.
Try to block out the heavy-handed symbolism and predictable plot, and concentrate on the wonderful Lassgärd.
Audience Reviews for Under the Sun (Under solen)
Lush cinematography is the highlight of this movie. The story falls a bit short of its potential, but good acting and beautiful Swedish countryside almost make up for it if you are in the mood for a romantic drama.
Rolf Lassgard is wonderful in this film as is Johan Widerberg and Helena Bergstrom. It is very simplistic and beautiful with some tender moments. By the end I was very involved in the story and left feeling happy. Bravaaaa
Cute but it falls short of a total success. Think of it as grumpy middle aged men but with Swedishness throughout.
