Jan Troell. Sweden/Denmark/Finland/Norway/Germany. 2009. 110 mins. Sub-titles. Cert 15.

Finnish actress Maria Heiskanen is outstanding in this beautifully crafted period drama, set in Sweden in the early 1900s. A working-class woman escapes from the drudgery of everyday life, and her drunken and womanising husband, by taking photographs on a simple box camera, encouraged by the shopkeeper with whom she enjoys a chaste romance.
