Notes/Trivia:
  • Besides being a very early gay-themed film, Vingarne is also notable for its innovative use of a framing story and telling the plot primarily through the use of flashbacks.
  • The film is largely lost, with only half an hour surviving of the original 70-minute film. A restoration was made using still photos and title cards to bridge the missing sections in 1987.
