The Last Sentence

126 minutes
Official website  
A remarkable drama set against Sweden’s tumultuous political world during the Second World War, Jan Troell’s The Last Sentence is based on the life of Torgny Segerstedt, a leading Swedish journalist of the 20th century. The film chronicles Segerstedt’s extraordinary one-man battle against both Nazism and his own 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. The narrative of The Last Sentence is as spellbinding as its message is clear: man has a moral duty to speak out against evil, an obligation that transcends time and geography. Beautifully filmed in black-and-white, The Last Sentence is a gripping and poetic tale of man who risked his life for his beliefs and who refused to be silenced.
