The Last Sentence

Film stills

Mūsų nebebus, bet ateities kartos paveldės sunkų palikimą būti žmogumi.

Prakeiktą ir palaimintą palikimą.

 

 

Torgny Segerstedt was one of the leading journalists in Sweden in the 20th century. He fought a one man battle against Hitler and the Nazi regime until his death in 1945 and during these tumultuous times his private life was marked by a world in chaos, as he falls in love with his friend’s wife while married himself. The Last Sentence weaves together the story of a psychological love story with a portrayal of the political situation Sweden found itself in during the Second World War. A gripping, dramatic and poetic tale about a man, who could not be silenced.
