The director Jens Assurs film is based on Tomas Bannerelse's novel Korparna, with contributions from actors such as Reine Brynolfsson and Peter Dalle. Brynolfsson plays the hard-working farmer Agne, whose farm lease is threatened to be terminated due to disagreements with the leaseholder. Mats Johnson highlights the actor's contribution in his review in the Göteborgs-Posten where he writes: “A minimum of dialogue. A camera (Jonas Alarik's photo is super) that doesn't move unnecessarily. And then Brynolfsson. He doesn't have to do much to dominate movie scenes”. The film was nominated for several Guldbaggar and was awarded one for Best Music.
