Storyline

When Bob's wife dies, he's determined to find Sabine, a woman he loved 30 years before. Even though he's had little to do with his daughter Rita, he begs her to take him to Denmark to find this lost love. She agrees and unceremoniously drops her baby off at her husband Steff's office where he's been working overtime to avoid bankruptcy. Rita and Bob pick up a hitchhiker, Erik, who plays to Rita's longing for freedom. Steff, with baby and teenage daughter, sets out in pursuit of his wife, jealous and also feeling pangs of love. On the road, Bob and Rita bond as do Steff and his children. On the Danish coast, Bob and Sabine, Rita, Steff, and Erik must sort out their dreams. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Obsession Leads To An Interesting Series Of Events
24 January 2005 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

A cinematographer during his earlier years, Bob (Per Oscarsson), had fostered a lifelong obsession with film actress Rita Hayworth, to an extent that his daughter (Marika Lagercrantz) is named after her, and when his wife of 30 years dies, Bob leaves upon a passionate search for an old flame, Sabine, who shared his fascination with Hayworth, chased closely by his daughter, who in turn is tailed by her perplexed husband and their teenage daughter, along with their infant son Adam, with many adventures following, some charged with romantic fancy. Lagercrantz, a talented performer capable of vast expressivity with very little apparent effort, is most captivating as one who is mourning her mother, yet while trying to hold fast two generations of her family and still reconcile a yearning for freedom. Director Jon Lindström and his cinematographer Kjell Lagerroos combine to establish a tone noteworthy for its component of suspense, as a viewer is kept guessing as to what may be the outcome of the two-fold search. An element of oblique humour is maintained throughout, helped to a great degree by the omnipresence of young Adam, who consistently finds himself being shifted among numerous sets of caring arms.
