Bo Widerberg

Widerberg gained international acclaim with the lyrically photographed "Elvira Madigan" (1967), which recounted the true story of a doomed love affair in morally oppressive 19th-century Sweden. He subsequently made two glossy but effective films centered on the plight of the working class; "Adalen 31" (1969), about a bloody strike in Northern Sweden, which won a Special Jury Prize at Cannes and an Oscar nomination, and "Joe Hill" (1971), a biopic of the legendary American labor leader.A punctilious craftsman, Widerberg has since made only a handful of films, only one of which, "All Things Fair" (1995) garnered the acclaim of his earlier efforts. The film focused on the relationship between a high school student (played by Widerberg's son Johan) and his much older female teacher. Widerberg garnered his third Academy Award nomination for what was to be his final motion picture.
