Set in the glamour and free spirit of the early sixties. Monica, a young Swedish small town girl is dreaming of the vibrant city jazz clubs of Stockholm. She embarks on an intense journey in the limelight as a celebrated singer and actress in the golden era of jazz. Among artists and hipsters her phenomenal success leaves a trail of broken love affairs and promises.
Well, this film does abuse the character of Monicas father as well as others.
If one have to make evil portraits, do not use real persons names.
And, there was no bus-service from Hagfors to Stockholm, she would take the train to Karlstad, and the express-train from there to Stockholm.
I also doubt the New York episode about Negroes and blondes.
Anachronistic and filled with errors. Also have a hard believing that Hagfors did not have an automatic telephone exchange in 1960.
But the film is well played, lovely songs, nice portraits of some other personalities, it also contains full frontal nudity and nice Stockholm scenes. Why it is I gave it a 6.
