Good-Bye Nana 1970
Ministern (original title)
1h 40m | Drama | 18 December 1970 (Sweden)
A film that questions the right of parents to force their children into the adult world’s rational behavior. A 6-year-old revolt by going to a lawyer and ask for a divorce from their parents.
Beautiful film. Nostalgia inducing pictures of a Sweden of “old”, complete with facades bulging with angst. The camera is often at the height of six year old Mats-Peter, nicely enhancing the child perspective that is a cornerstone of this movie.
Events unfold quite dramatically at times, unfortunately without really moving the viewer at the core. Still rather inspiring film, containing not a few little gem scenes that will linger and spur thoughts on much from “the welfare state”, the price of a career, aesthetics of the early seventies to how it was to be a child and be both curious of and frustrated with the world.
See it on a rainy summer afternoon.
