"”Absolutely lyrical” do ”So much better” of the classic poem."
"In the centre stands the dead poets, live performers and Fredrik Lindström."
"Twelve artists interpret and tonsätter a poem. The concept for the ”Totally lyrical” (SVT) is clear; in the classic public service spirit, it has become time for Sweden to folkbildas in poetry. Journalist Fredrik Lindström, who previously taught the tv audience in the Swedish language and its dialects, are now taking the next step into the literary world."
"Not entirely unexpected shoulders he role of the teacher here also, in subjects as diverse as literature, language, and general wisdom. Lindström kåserar and filosoferar, he takes naturally a lot of space and is passionate about his teaching."
"If it is a coincidence that he said that he was a little scared at the meetings with the artists in the series are young women, like Molly Sandén and Little Jinder, but considerably more relaxed in, for example, Tommy Körbergs and Mattias Alkbergs the company is unclear, but perhaps interesting."
"Liberating enough, Sandén directly against his teacher, and select two Edith Södergran-poems that are not in Lindström's list of suggestions. Both the ”Vierge moderne” and ”the Day cools”, as she mixes together into a neat pop song, contains lines each tonårsmelankoliker with self-esteem can quote. Yet it is touching to see an artist like Lynch, who grew up you a spotlight, and constantly has been rewritten, and estimated, so deeply relate to Her most famous stanza: ”you were a woman, you found a soul – you are disappointed”. "
"even if the first episode's two poems are some of Sweden's most famous, Tommy Körberg has as its interpretation the chosen Stone Selanders ”Play ball”, they become interesting in relationship to each other. Lindström wants to analyze masculinity and the expression ”boys will solidify to men”, the poem's most powerful image, but it is the Queen not as keen on."
"It is also telling that Selander in the role of editor was the one who autonomously picked off some overly explicit lines in Her poems when her poetry was first published in Sweden."
"at the same time pointing to the different fates of something hopeful, and deeply melancholy, in the course of history. For now, the time has come to catch up södergran's modern kvinnoskildringar, while Selander feels right mossy. If he was remembered at all."
"In the other section makes Little Jinder Bodil Malmstens ”Inheritance from a foster home” while Mattias Alkberg take on This ”To föruttnelsen”. Where is the overall theme of alienation, a topic of both artists Lindström can speak inspired."
"the Actual tonsättandet will be as soon as a pious brackets in the program, where it sometimes feels like kändisfaktorn used as a pretext for discussing poetry. At the end of each section play the artists songs live in front of an audience, for unknown reasons, in an old barn. The result is perhaps not great music, but it is hardly the point either."
"In its best moments is ”Quite lyrical,” refreshing diktanalys and litteraturkärlek. In its worst adds Fredrik Lindström seizing too much of the programme's oxygen."
"... the highlight of the day. Radiant Norwegian series ”Young and promising” (SVT Play) is finally back. In the fourth and unfortunately final season, continues the three friends Elise, Alex and Nenne struggle with career, family and love life. English Bianca Kronlöf is charmingly selfish in the role of the comedian Katinka, Elises ex-flirt."
"...portraits. Sophie Fiennes has followed Grace Jones in several years, home to Jamaica and up on stages around the world. ”Bloodlight and Bami”, which is just called ”Grace Jones” on SVT Play, is stripped, intrusively private and filled by the hugely charismatic icon's music."
"...music. It is a full 2.5 hours long, but during the christmas break is finally the time to check out the acclaimed ' Springsteen on Broadway” (Netflix). Magnetic storytelling."
" Bergman. M, KD, and SD may have put a stop to yet another Ingmar Bergman-years in their otherwise hopeless budget, but they can not prevent SVT from to view Jane Magnusson fine and praised the ”Bergman – a life in four acts”. If the director's crazily productive in 1957, his bad stomach and a strange diet."
"... German thriller. Patrick Süskinds classic ”Perfume” has inspired a new Netflix series of the same name. The document is brought into the contemporary, German internatskolemiljö with, among others, August Diehl (Dieter Hellstrom in ”Inglorious basterds”) in one of the major roles."
"... birthday. ”So much better” will soon be 10 years and it starts TV 4 celebrate tomorrow evening with a first delights, a replay of Lasse Berghagens day in the first season. The following Saturday we get to see again Tomas Ledins, Magnus Uggla, Carola and Tommy Nilsson's days."
