PERSONKRETS 3:1  (TV) 1998

(Personal Circle)

ROLE: Karl-Erik

GENRE: Drama

COUNTRY:  Sweden

TV PREMIERE:  November 21, 1998


The film is based on the play by Lars Noren and portrays the collective repressions of the Scandinavian welfare society. The new underclass of drug addicts and prostitutes, alcoholics and dossers refused domiciliary rights in the welfare state are here given their defence counsel. In many respects, Personkrets 3:1 stands out not only as an intellectual analysis of a post-modern society, but also as an act of love straight from Christian humanism. The play develops a powerful commitment to the sufferings of people.

Barbro Westling, Aftonbladet:
"In Personkrets 3: 1, Nyqvist, the addict Karl-Erik played such an empathy, virtuoso confusion and instant insight that the interpretation grew into a separate act of humanism."
