Gentleman by Mikael Marcimain and Blowfly Park by Jens Östberg

Beaten up, bruised, and scared, a young writer hides in a Stockholm apartment, writing the story of its disappeared inhabitants: the flamboyant and charismatic Morgan brothers.
It all began a year earlier, when he was rooming with Henry Morgan, a boxer, piano player, composer, bartender, and old-fashioned gentleman with a Gatsby-like capacity for turning life into a feast and absolutely no talent for keeping secrets.
The two friends led the high-life in Stockholm until the day Henry’s younger brother Leo – a star poet, drunk, political provocateur – showed up. Leo drags them into a scandal involving illegal weapons and gangsters, and soon the three men find themselves unwittingly and irreversibly trapped in a dangerous plot.

Gentlemen is a very long and slowly film. Sometimes it was very difficult to follow the differentes part of the movie. I think that it is a movie to show as TV serie.  But I can recognize that the movie has very good pictures and good actors and actress. I can imagine that it is difficult to adapt a book into a movie. Gentlemen will be the opening movie at Stockholm Film Festival on november 5th at Scandia cinema.

Blowfly Park by Jens Östberg 
Swedish director Jens Östberg's feature debut, Blowfly Park. 
Blowfly Park is a psychological thriller which follows Christian Kretschmann, a day-nursery teacher, who may have committed a violent murder.
The mystery of a disappearance of a young man. Blowfly Park follows the path of a psychological thriller and anatomizes what is possibly the worst kind of violence in an exemplary minimalist style – without excess. Making a well-timed commentar y on the phenomenon of social intimidation, the film focuses on the violence that humiliates, suppresses, terrorizes and defies age, gender or level of education.
