"On the Netflix series can teach us anything, it is to warn women to get caught up in the role of nurses"
"Imagine if the gender roles in the ”Greatest of all” would be reversed. Would Sebastian existed at Maja's side – to console, forgive, and clean up after?"
"Netflix first Swedish originalserie ”Greatest of all” (”Quicksand” in English) is a successful dramatization of Malin Persson Giolitos novel, with the exception of some questionable acting and exchanges (svengelska ”get a room” or stolpiga ”say you are mine” – ”yes, I am your” is difficult to deliver so that they feel natural)."
"After having ploughed the six sections on an evening, I'm impressed in particular by Reuben Sallmander as Sebastian coolly charming dad, the exalted head of the company Claes Fagerman."
"That iconic rikemans-sadist trumps he to and with Erik's stepfather (Johan Rabaeus) in the film adaptation of Jan guillou's ”Evil”."
"the Portrayal of the upper class is the sour sharp, where the emptiness echoes behind the superficial flärden and the abundance of Sebastian (Felix Sandman) knarkstinna parties becomes parodic."
"It is a world where Maja's (Hanna notice of attendance) the family's large Djursholmsvilla looks like a cottage in comparison and where you pay people to clean up and mix even breakfast-smoothies."
"And well, människosynen provoking, as well as crawl and smörandet for the filthy rich. The scene on the Fagermans yacht in the first episode sets the tone, where Maja's deeply impressed parents, despite my dad Claes arrogance and nasty taunts at her son, happily leaving behind his daughter with his new-found ”friends” for a couple of weeks lyxseglats on the Mediterranean."
"As the hårdpluggande förortskillen Samir (William Spetz) angrily kick out during a wild party; without their money, would Sebastian just a ”troubled fool”. Yet it is hardly in Djursholm that the police narkotikaspanare concentrate their efforts."
"Family and friends choose to see through your fingers at all, to the via Maja becomes a part of the Fagermans lyxvärld and the promise of a future in the society's absolute sour cream."
"But the ”Greatest of all” is not just a kriminalserie about money and class – but also about the life-threatening gender roles. For it is hardly a coincidence that the role of the carer so much more is expected to be shouldered by the woman than the man in a relationship."
"that provokes the most is that everyone, with the exception of the supersympatiske the teacher Christer (Shanti Roney), continues to urge Marie to take care of Sebastian, and even puts the blame on her when she, after (spoilervarning) his supposed suicide attempt choose to go back to school."
"The codependency Maja drawn into there is no one who is trying to help her out, rather the opposite. The role of the good girl, who in the past gained her top marks in school, now makes just everything so much worse."
"what if it instead would be Maja who was the derailed susanna, had Sebastian's surroundings really provided that he would clean up after her, even after a first infringement?"
"If the large crowds that will see ”the Greatest of all” can learn something, in addition to divisions based on class and mental illness is poop, it is to warn women to get caught up in the role of nurses to their partners."
"To really help a fellow human being is something else entirely."
"... documentary. ”The trial against Ratko Mladic” (SVT) brings may not be much new about the wars in the former Yugoslavia, but linking educational individual abuse on the ground in Bosnia to the defendants, the master and follow some of the witnesses into the courtroom in the Hague. As the aged woman who gets to see a video clip of her husband when he is forced to coax their son out of his hiding place, before they are both murdered."
"... animals and nature. ”Our planet” (Netflix) is a cool nature book series for anyone who missed ”Planet earth”. A lot is about how our planet is affected by global warming, with scary images, but also an urgent plea to act NOW. For those a little more light-hearted interludes, among other things manakinhannarnas spectacular parningsdanser."
"... dance. Bob Fosses dark ego trip ”All that jazz” is an unprecedented filmmusikal, not to mention the masterpiece ”Cabaret” as he did with the help of his creative partner, and for a time wife, Gwen Verdon. In the new series ”Fosseu002FVerdon” (HBO Nordic) depicts the relationship of Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, with the focus on the couple's artistry and the messy private life, partially, from his daughter Nicole's point of view."
"... cycling. On Sunday it is once again time for the ”l'enfer du nord” (”the hell of the north”), which endagsloppet Paris-Roubaix is usually called. 55 of 261 km running on the cobblestones and the drama airs starting 11.30 on Eurosport. Fjolårssegraren, slovakia Peter Sagan, has the chance to defend his title."
