Fanny and Alexander 
Fanny and Alexander review
2/4 stars

It focuses on a wealthy brother and sister Alexander (Bertil Guve), his sister Fanny (Pernilla Allwin). Their father unexpectedly passes away. Emilie (Ewa Fröling), their mother, marries Edvard Vergérus (Jan Malmsjö) who is a strict bishop. Bountiful of characters which lacks introduction and sluggish pace makes this film difficult to view. Strong start though it dwindles towards the middle portion of the picture.

The screenplay is the only aspect worth viewing with lines: "You must be gentle with people." "Everything can happen." "Let us be kind, generous, affectionate and good. It is necessary and not at all shameful to take pleasure in the little world." Plush set-pieces and wonderful wardrobe. So many characters and yet had poor development on each one. It makes the viewer anticipate what would happen next, which shows how disoriented the plot was. Acting was was suffice and humor in the beginning felt misplace. This was disappointing considering how the directors earlier works were so effective/artistic/smarter. Fanny and Alexander had its good intent, unfortunately it was a drag viewing it and just not that enticing.
