Veranda for en tenor Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmmaker Lisa Ohlin, known for her TV work and short films, directed this Swedish drama. Author Thomas (Johan Hison Kjellgren) argues with his wife, visits a bar, and runs into his childhood friend Hoffman (Krister Henriksson), now a cancer-ridden alcoholic. The two haven't seen each other in 35 years. Hoffman recalls Thomas' play Waiting for a Tenor and suggests they film it with Hoffman in the leading role -- the opera-lover Henning. Thomas finds funding, and they collaborate on a screenplay, set during the summer of 1961, recalling their own childhood experiences. Ohlin intertwines the present with the past -- when Thomas' father Henning, his wife, and Thomas are at their summer house, and the father promises his son that an internationally famous Swedish tenor will soon visit. The film combines color (present-day sequences) with black and white (childhood scenes). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
