Notes & Reviews:
World famous tenor Jussi Bjorling never let success go to his head. He preferred sitting on a bridge with a fishing rod in his hand. Despite his enormous success, in many ways he remained a shy boy. He sacrificed his health and maybe even his life or the sake of the music.
The definitive film biography includes testimony by Jussi's children Anders, Lars, Ann-Charlotte (with much attention to their time together at Siaro) and his cousin Marta; former co-stars Kerstin Meyer Kjerstin Dellert, Aase Nordmo-Loverg; experts like Stefan Johansson and Harald Henrysson.Notes & Reviews:
