I love these films of total darkness with no hope in sight whatsoever. Per Graffman makes a magnificent portrait of a father torn between old sins and parenthood. Also "Leo" is fantastically portrayed by the young Emil Odepark, the bullied teenager who's had enough. Both of these destinies woven together exellently by script writers Mikael Bengtsson and Reza Parsa. Also dazzling music score by Peter Lundback in the pivotal, climatic ending scene. One of the best films I've seen from my Country Sweden in the last years! Outstandingly directed by Reza Parsa, not only the actors mentioned but all of them.
Looking forward to new releases from Parsa.
