Il Capitano: A Swedish Requiem (Swedish: Il Capitano) is a 1991 Swedish-Finnish biographical drama film directed by Jan Troell, about the 1988 Åmsele murders where a family of three was murdered by Juha Valjakkala over a stolen bicycle. Antti Reini stars as Valjakkala, renamed Jari in the film, and Maria Heiskanen as his girlfriend Marita Routalammi, renamed Minna. Being released so soon after the actual event, the film was very controversial and received highly mixed reviews, with some critics praising it for the difficult choice of subject and others condemning it for the same reason.
