The Gullspang Miracle Encore


A “divine” sign leads two pious Swedish sisters to buy an apartment in the small town of Gullspång, where they find the seller to be near-identical to their late elder sister. From there, all three women’s lives gradually: and a riveting, cleverly structured exploration of serendipity, faith, social divisions, ancestry and personal identity unfolds. 

The film delves into some of the themes that made Tim Wardle’s Three Identical Strangers deeply affecting, but its canvas is one of a kind – a complex weave that also encompasses a haunting unsolved crime, imbued with unnerving real-life echoes of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.

“Maria Frederiksson’s enthralling feature documentary debut is solid gold. The film leads us through a compelling labyrinth of carefully unravelling secret histories where truth is absolutely stranger than fiction. A must-see!”

Jo-Ann Titmarsh, HeyUGuys

“[The film’s] astonishing twists and turns transform what appears to be one sort of unbelievable fable into an altogether different eye-opener.”

Nick Schager, The Daily Beast
