1 hour and 40 minutes where absolutely nothing happens
24 June 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

1 hour and 40 minutes where absolutely nothing happens. I found the movie very weird, without any interesting story. It's just strange events upon strange events all the way through the movie, none of them enjoyable. All the characters are just one miserable existence after another. They live way out on the countryside in Sweden, WAY out the countryside! Anyway, the movie is about this boy Osvald who's got a very close relationship with his father Tjaffo. Tjaffo drinks too much and is generally unpleasant towards his wife. His wife Victoria (Osvald's mother) has got mental issues and is even more of a miserable existence than Tjaffo. Then there's the entire family consistent of... I don't know, very weird people. And not in the highly enjoyable Addams Family way.

I found myself not caring what happened next. I learned how to roll with the punches and kept my eyes open for 1:40.
