Denmark / Sweden 1995


  From Bo Widerberg (Elvira Madigan) comes the Academy Award-nominated All Things Fair, a sensual and controversial coming-of-age story in which a young man, Stig (Johan Widerberg), falls madly in love with his teacher, Viola (Marika Lagercrantz). The intense relationship that develops spins rapidly out of control, setting the stage for a final confrontation between Stig and Viola in which “all is fair in love and war.”

The print is a little yellowish/green but a decent image from Home Vision. Colors are bright and attractive. Great subtitles as the mark of Criterions mother company. Light on Extras, but a most satisfying DVD regardless. Original ratio (manipulated slightly to anamorphic 1.78), original audio and removable subtitles. out of
