The Last Sentence (2014) Feature Trailer
Feature trailer for The Last Sentence.
Directed by Oscar-nominated director Jan Troell (The Emigrants, Everlasting Moments), one of Sweden’s most acclaimed filmmakers, The Last Sentence is set against the backdrop of WW2, and is based on the life of crusading journalist Torgny Segerstedt, editor-in-chief of one of Sweden’s leading newspapers, and his one-man battle against Nazism and his country’s policy of appeasement to Hitler.
With Sweden caught between Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Russia, the country’s elites chose a policy of neutrality and compliance, with few daring to speak up against the evil around them. Among those who did, nobody was as loud and as uncompromising as Segerstedt (Danish star Jesper Christensen, Nymphomaniac: Volume 1, Melancholia), one of the most prominent Swedish journalists of the 20th century. In the eyes of many of his countrymen, his pen was far more dangerous than the Nazi sword. Amidst the political turmoil of the era, Segerstedt’s own personal life took a dramatic and scandalous turn as he entered into a very public affair with Maja Forssman, the Jewish wife of his close friend, the newspaper’s publisher. Maja Forssman is played by Pernilla August, winner of the Cannes Best Actress Award for Bille August’s Best Intentions.
Actor Jesper Christensen and actress Pernilla August seem to have a thing for one another. Having shared intimate moments in 2005 with Drabet, the duo is back again with Pernilla playing the role of mistress to Jesper's character.
