(1971 Nicolas Roeg)

svensk titel: Mannaprovet

Abandoned in the Australian outback, two young white children stumble upon an adolescent Aborigine, who is performing a "walkabout." In this ritualistic six-month journey, the boy must learn to survive by himself in the imposing desert.

Communication is a problem, although more for the girl than for her little brother, who still has a child's ability to communicate simply and directly. The two teenagers fail to connect for a variety of reasons, mostly due to the girl's lack of interest in a culture that is unfamiliar and different from her own. Ultimately, the differences become too much to bear, resulting in a tragic conclusion...

(2009 Zack Snyder)

For those obsessed with the critically acclaimed graphic novel (which would be almost anyone who has read it), or for audiences looking for a stylish action film, WATCHMEN is worth--well--watching. But those who thought THE DARK KNIGHT was too gloomy should stay far away from Zack Snyder’s film. As far as superhero movies go, this graphic adaptation of the comic book series from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons makes even Christopher Nolan’s Batman films look like Saturday morning fare.

Mammoth and mazelike, WATCHMEN follows a group of retired costumed heroes living in an alternate 1985 where Nixon is still president and fear of nuclear doomsday permeates the air. When a hero named the Comedian (an excellent Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is murdered, his former colleague--the unhinged, masked Rorschach (a perfectly creepy Jackie Earle Hayley)--begins investigating who is behind the death. The other masked crimefighters--Silk Spectre 2 (Malin Ackerman), Ozymandias (Matthew Goode), Nite Owl 2 (Patrick Wilson), and Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup), a godlike being who is the only one with actual superpowers--soon learn that there may be a plot to rid the world of their kind.

Way of the Gun
(2000 Christopher McQuarrie)

Two professional criminals, Parker (Ryan Phillippe) and Longbaugh (Benicio Del Toro), think they've devised the plan of a lifetime: kidnap Robin (Juliette Lewis), a pregnant surrogate mother, then collect on the ransom money from the parents-to-be. However, when Parker begins to take a shine to the kidnapping victim, the plan begins to crumble. But it is not until a heavily armed group of mob hit men arrive with the ransom money that Parker and Longbaugh realize they've cooked up a spicy stew of chaos, violence, and confusion. The unborn baby tops it off, making Christopher McQuarrie's The Way of the Gun a terrifically tense nail-biter.

(1958 Göran Gentele)

Värmlänningarna är nog det mest kända svenska långlustspelet. Det uruppfördes på Operan i Stockholm 1846 och har därefter framförts en mängd gånger på både operascener och friluftsscener. Spelet har dessutom filmatiserats fem gånger.

År 1957 samlade operachefen och regissören Göran Gentele en rad framstående sångare och skådespelare till en nyinspelning. Per Myrberg gör sin filmdebut i rollen som Erik och Busk-Margit Jonsson, då etablerad operasångare, spelar Anna. Filmen spelades mestadels i in Värmland, bland annat i parken vid Rottneros herrgård och vid Sölje herrgård.
