Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 05/01/2001
"...UNDER THE SUN boasts fine performances, from the bear-like Lassgard's gently reticent Olof to Bergstrom's sexy, conflicted Ellen..."
Hollywood Reporter - 08/08/2001
"...SUN is a touching, beautifully acted drama....The measured pace of Nutley's intelligent screenplay allows for complex characterizations, and the emotional dynamics are conveyed with sensitivity..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/17/2001
"...UNDER THE SUN casts a lovely spell, as warm and seductive as its summertime setting..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/31/2001
"...[Bergstrom's performance is] so carefully modulated that by the end we are hanging on every word and gesture..."

Product Description:

Set in the Swedish countryside in 1956, UNDER THE SUN is the tale of a lonesome middle-aged farmer, Olef (Rolf Lassgard). He has one friend, Erik (Johan Widerberg) who helps him with some of the work on the farm, but for the most part he lives a solitary life. That is, until he decides to hire a housekeeper. The gorgeous blond, Ellen (Helena Bergstrom), who shows up to take the position sweeps him off his feet. Although an inevitable love triangle develops between Rolf, Ellen, and the jealous Erik, UNDER THE SUN keeps its focus on the beautiful rural landscape and maintains a light and joyous mood.
