Storyline

Without forewarning the police storm the hospital where Catti has given birth to her and Mikael's child. In the chaos that comes voices are heard that scream "terrorists" and "illegal stay". Catti's room mate jumps out from the hospital's third floor in a panic, and leaves her child... Catti and Mikael are drawn into a dreadful scenario which step by step take them into a brutal and unknown Sweden, far from the dream of family happiness they just now had within reach.

Run for your life but not to this movie
4 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Something went terribly wrong with this movie. The acting was good, there was plenty of action and the musical backing excellent. So what went wrong? It must have been the script. Or may be it was the editing. So many of the necessary details just weren't there. As a consequence I really couldn't understand what was going on.

Sweden it seems has (like most other countries) a dread of illegal immigrants. The Swedes believe ( like most of us) that foreigners just can't be trusted so we close the gates on them and keep them out at all costs.

Dodging the police on a nightmare journey Catti and Michael (illegally in Sweden) are hampered by their little bundle of joy. I got quite tired just watching the babies being lumbered around from cabin to car and car to cabin across fields deep in mud and sometimes under gun fire. (Not a good start in life for the little ones) Running with the babies in their arms takes up quite a lot of the film.

As for the melodramatic ending. It was just too much. Was it a spur of the moment decision to cut life short in this way? Was there no alternative? If they had only waited a few more seconds......
