| The twisted genius of Per Oscarsson
"Vaxdockan" (Mannequin)is entirely Per Oscarsson's spectacle. He demonstrates his entire range of talent and folly as an actor. The trademark of Per O. In this dark drama, as a deserted and lonely night watchman, thirsting for love and recognition. Director Arne Mattsson delivers one of his best films. This version of the well-known story, initially suggested by E.T.A. Hoffmann ("Der Sandmann") and perhaps in this case inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". "Vaxdockan" is set in a house of strange people. Besides Per Oscarssons character, there's a lonely, bitter and deformed landlady, a young pipe neck and Tor Isedal. A rare Swedish actor who has played more villains and dangerous men than anyone else in Scandinavian cinema. In this film he has some interesting lines to deliver as well: "I have heard many strange things. I have been through a lot of strange things, but being accused of having seduced a mannequin... We all have our ideal woman. If you keep quiet about mine, so I'll keep quiet about yours."
