The Last Sentence

This introspective character drama is based on the life of Torgny Segerstedt, a crusading journalist who alerted the Swedish public to the growing threat of fascism in the 1930s. Apparently, while fighting off Hitler with the power of the pen, he also had time to engage in an affair with his best friend's wife. It's frank and quite beautiful (shot in oh-so-Nordic black-and-white), but it's slow going. In Swedish with English subtitles. 126 minutes Unrated.
