Im surprised no one has written a review of this film yet. So I make a go for it. I also find it a bit strange about the low rating for this film. I don't want to write a long review and with no spoilers, I make this short.
This film is an intense drama, well directed and with some of the best Swedish actors and actresses. We get to meet two couples who compete in amateur dance competitions, and who also are friends and socialize on a regular basis. The movie has a dark undertone, and you get a feeling that something is horrible wrong with the way these people communicate and socialize. If you like a well crafted psychological drama - this is the film for you.
A forgotten treasure!
