Quite good but slow and a tad depressing
30 March 1999 | by (Helsingborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film gave the viewer a good chance to watch some different and interesting characters. To sum it up a bit I would say this was a film about how to deal with guilt and how to deal with a loss of a loved one (or loved ones).

But even with the depth in the characters and some fairly good acting skills it was way too slow for my taste and far too long episodes with silence between the lines to be a really good movie. It also gave me a sort of depressing feeling once it was over.

Overall I have to say it was worth the watch if nothing else than for the great depth we get from the characters.
