Swedish classic
7 April 2015 | by ett-moln-i-byxorSee all my reviews

I saw the movie once when I was a boy in eighties, it's has been a while I admit that, I don't remember the hole story, witch is sad but I remember some parts and the feeling. It's a biographical story about "Carl Jularbo"a Swedish folk musician active in the early parts of the twentieth-century. The movie contains much of his recordings, witch nowadays sounds a bit of or even silly. But the main theme of the movie is chronological story set of how i became a famous musician and his life story. I remember some parts when he worked as a navvy and the hard conditions they worked under. It also a story of how the Swedish "folkets park" was created.
