Well-told relationship film...
7 December 2005 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film surprised me. It was recently televised in Australia on SBS-TV with sub-titles. It's not a great-looking movie; this disappointed me, because, being a Swedish film, I expected lots of beautiful scenery and beautiful people. Not so - both scenery and people were very ordinary, even a bit less than ordinary. But the story

  • essentially about a young couple whose quest to have a child delves


beneath the surface of their relationship to expose the flaws in both the relationship and each other - is quite skillfully told. In particular, I enjoyed how Johan's earlier selfishness, once he finds the truth about his fertility, escalates into child-like temper tantrums. The resolution to the story, whilst a bit quick and too much of a total turn-around to be considered realistic, is satisfying all the same.

Whilst viewing this movie I kept thinking that it was so much better by far than all those cheesy relationship films which Hollywood churns out. It's a very universal story, and could have been just as easily filmed in China or Australia or Croatia or Iceland. It's well worth seeing.
