A look at the life and times of Ronnie Peterson, the great Formula One driver who was killed during a race at Monza in 1978. Made under the supervision of his daughter, Nina Kennedy, who also appears on camera and serves as co-executive producer, the film takes us back to Petersonā€™s early years, how he met the love of his life, Barbro, and how he made his way to the top of Formula One racing in the 1970s. Thanks to a wealth of archive footage, home movies and fresh interviews with some of the other great profiles of the era (including Niki Lauda and Mario Andretti), we get to know a man who seemed genuinely kind and decent, but also learn how hair-raisingly dangerous Formula One was at the time. Gripping, but a tad unsatisfying in the end, as it refuses to delve deeper into the deaths of Ronnie and Barbro.Ā 

2017-Sweden. 91 min. Color-B/W. Produced byĀ Mia Sohlman. Directed byĀ Henrik Jansson-Schweizer. Screenplay: Morgan Jensen.

    Will this be released outside Sweden with English subtitles? He’s always been a hero of mine and I’d love to see the film.

      I don’t know this for sure, but I’d be very surprised if the filmmakers don’t try to distribute this outside Sweden, considering the star status of Peterson and the drivers interviewed in the film.

    This film definitely needs to be released in the United States.
