Trivia

Adam Pålsson previously starred in "Himlen Är Oskyldigt Blå" (Behind Blue Skies). A title taken from a Ted Gärdestad song. Hannes Holm directed that movie aswell as this biopic. See more »

Goofs

The real-life Ted Gärdestad was left-handed, but in the movie, he is portrayed as being right-handed. The movie makers were aware of this fault but decided to go with it so as to allow the leading actor Adam Pålsson to play the guitar himself. Adam Pålsson has stated that Ted Gärdestads brother Kenneth (who also wrote the lyrics to the songs) advised him to play the way that felt natural for him. See more »

Honest, sad and heart warming at the same time.
20 January 2018 | by tommen90See all my reviews

Being a huge Ted Gärdestad fan for two some years, I was really excited when I heard that this movie was being made, and I was not dissapointed. I have seen some of the directors/writers (Hannes Holm) previous films: "Behind Blue Skies", "A Man Named Ove" and "Klassfesten". All had a good sense of humor and could keep the dramatic moments at a good level. So I thought he would be a very good choice for this picture. As for the actors; there are a good amount of well known established swedish actors in the movie, and they all held up their part. They play more the supporting roles but they did good. But the main focus and the best part of the movie are the two leading actors, whom of wich I've never heard of before but they very much impressed me. Ted (Adam Pålsson) and Kenneth (Peter Viitanen) give some of the best performances in Swedish film history I have ever seen. Adam Pålsson shows Ted as a wide eyed, curious, funny, musicly gifted and lovable person, but still expertly shows his darker and more tragic sides later in his life and It is heart breaking to watch. Excellent! Peter Viitanen portrays his brother Kenneth as a caring, understanding, brilliant songwriter, and a loving big brother. Not an easy role, but he brought it to the table. The music is very good, even though Pålssons singing voice isn't that great, there is still so much heart and passion put into it that it doesn't distract you. The cinematography is also very good, It puts you right in that time period of early 70's up to late 90's Sweden. So one of the best Swedish films i have seen in a long time. Could not recommend it more. Go see it!
