Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1996, Bo Widerberg''s ALL THINGS FAIR tells a powerful coming-of-age tale. It is 1943 Sweden, and the 15-year-old Stig (Johan Widerberg) finds himself falling in love with his 37-year-old teacher, Viola (Marika Lagercrantz), who is ignored by her drunken husband and dives headlong into the affair. But when Stig begins to take notice of a girl his age who expresses interest in him, Viola is driven to the breaking point.

Malmoe, Sweden during the Second World War. Stig is a 15 year old pupil on the verge of adulthood. Viola is 37 years old and his teacher. He is attracted by her beauty and maturity. She is drawn to him by his youth and innocence, a god-sent relief from her drunk and miserable husband. They start a passionate and forbidden relationship - but it has consequences they never could have expected. Written by Mattias Pettersson {seaman@sbbs.se}

All things fair takes place in 1943. Stig meets his teacher, Viola. His life changes forever. They start an affair. She is 37, and he is 15, but that makes no difference to them. Viola''s husband is always drunk and unfaithful, so she thinks her own affair is therefore justified. The girl next door, however, also shares love for Stig and is disappointed he never notices her. The affair grows dangerous, and Viola is risking everything. Then one day Stig realizes love does exist with someone his own age, and Viola lets him pay dearly for his realization....
