Screenshots from Skärgårdsdoktorn TV series (scenes with Robyn played by Rebecka Liljeberg):
All screenshots, slightly higher quality in one file. Just download the file, unpack somewhere and doubleclick on index.html.
Other TV appearances
Video clips in MPEG1/VCD format
Higher quality MPEG2 versions
While MPEG1 clips tell the whole story of Robin, MPEG2 clips show only the more appealing parts. :)
P.S. You will need a DVD player software and a powerful enough computer to play the MPEG2 clips. And a bit of patience. And a good internet connection wouldn't hurt. Actually, also my internet connection plays a role, it being a rather lousy one during daytime.
Wow... What can I say. This time we saw quite a different Rebecka. And there was a lot to see. I really expected a small role, nothing to talk about. Fortunately it was all different. :)
At last I am starting to understand what all the Rebecka fans are really talking about. The series itself was (in my humble opinion) a lousy one. It had everything that makes the usual American crap so revolting to me - often stonefaced actors going through the motions, speaking in full sentences, almost as if reading from a book, not as in real life. And it had nothing that made Fucking Åmål so great - you feel as if people are experiencing what is shown on screen.
In this one, her character was a lot more alive than others. It was especially appealing when I watched it in slo-mo when taking snapshots. Her act was constantly filled with small lovely moments that made it alive. That are "impossible to direct" (as Lukas told in his commentary track to FÅ). Movements, expressions... it's difficult to tell. It's especially difficult to capture on a still image. Yet, in a TV/movie they go so fast that most of them pass unnoticed. It really was a joy taking snapshots from this series. Much more so than from Eva & Adam, even though I liked the series itself much less.
I don't know why I am writing this. It seems wrong to dissect something like that, to put something like that in writing. Yet, I am doing this as I just can't let go of what I have heard almost every major FÅ member say: that they don't get what people found in the film. Like it was some kind of stupid mass psychosis. That's why I probably want to formulate it to myself, what were the many things that really made FÅ so great that it still hasn't left my thoughts alone.
Some comments about the technical background:
I guess I'll put these tools up on the net, after I have polished them a bit. Currently they are nowhere near the form that can be made public.
From the list of clips some of you might get the impression that MPEG2 is "better" than "MPEG1". Actually, it isn't true. When the file size i.e. data rate is same, and it isn't very large, they make almost identical results. It's just that with considerably higher data rates i.e. larger files for the same duration of video, MPEG2 is just better equipped to put this larger available bandwidth to good use. But for smaller bandwidths, MPEG1 is actually even slightly better.
