With its exhilarating World War II narrative and performances that touch notes intimate and grand, “Simon and the Oaks” has an exquisite, and epic, ache.

“Simon and the Oaks” is a two-hour theatrical feature that has the kind of emotional and storytelling reach regularly found these days only in cable TV miniseries. It’s a warmly done family and personal drama that seems to cover familiar territory, but only up to a point and very much in its own way.
But “Simon” didn’t get to be a major success at the Swedish box office and the recipient of a record 13 nominations for the Guldbagge Awards, Sweden’s Oscars, by being strictly business as usual.
Rather, as directed by Lisa Ohlin from a script by Marnie Blok, “Simon” provides unexpected textures and twists for its story, and supplies so many dramatic situations and scenes that by the time it’s over we feel we’ve lived through it along with its characters. The emotion is plentiful here, but the film rarely hits situations harder than it should, thanks in part to expert acting that resulted in three Guldbagge nominations and two victories.
