Simon and the Oaks replaces the political with the poetical and focuses on half a decade, with Bill Skarsgård lending heft and integrity as Simon. Annette Focks’ mesmerizing violin score (along with works by Berlioz, Mozart, Sibelius, and others) adds aplomb to a fine film.

An epic drama spanning the years 1939 to 1952, this is the gripping story of Simon (played by Bill Skarsgaard, brother of Alex and son of Stellan), who grows up in a loving working class family on the outskirts of Gothenburg but always feels out of place. Intellectually gifted, he stubbornly persists in acquiring an education normally reserved for young men of the professional classes, much to the chagrin of his parents who fear that he will become stuck up. At prep school, he meets Isak, the son of a wealthy Jewish bookseller who has fled Nazi persecution in Germany. When Isak faces trouble at home, he seeks comfort from Simon’s family and the two households slowly merge, connecting in unexpected ways as war rages all over Europe. Simon and the Oaks is based on the Swedish bestseller of the same name, written by Marianne Fredriksson. It offers a unique depiction of fate, destiny and free will and vividly portraysthe situation for Jews in Sweden during World War II.
