Colin Nutley is an expatriate Englishman and film director, best known for films like Änglagård (House of Angels). He found the dance band scene so fascinating that he made a film,
Sista Dansen (The last dance) about it.
One of the neat things about Colin's work is that he tells the actors what he wants them to say in English. They then translate their lines into Swedish themselves, in their own words. The result is an exquisite observation of the way Swedes talk, think and interact.
I do not intend to compete with the experts, so I recommend you take a look at Andreas' site Andreas Danswebb,
the entertainment guide for West Sweden Nöjesguiden, Västra Sverige,
or the unsurpassable gossip magazine of the dance band scene, Får jag lov
