A large family is going to the mountain for their christmas vacation, in a rented cabin. Problems occur on Christmas Eve when the father gets drunk and his alcohol problem comes to show. We get to learn a lot about the family's background, and secrets are revealed. If you look behind the curtain, they've got a whole other story to tell than what it looks from the outside. Written by

Norway's first official Dogma film begins with a Norwegian family - plus their Polish inlaws getting ready to spend a traditional Christmas together in a mountain cabin. But the tension between them begins to develop almost as soon as they arrive in the cramped cabin with the kerosene stove breaking down, one grandchild suffering an asthma attack, one of the daughters bursting into tears over the break-up of a relationship, another confiding that she has just had a miscarriage and the alcoholic father already nipping into the vodka. As the night draws on real feelings are revealed.
Good Film? So - So
Watchable? For Some
If you get bored so easily this is not a film for you. But I manage to sit through this horrible yet interesting film about a family celebrating Christmas in a small cabin ended up nearly killing each other.
The story is confusing, compare that to the irritating movement of the camera. I know! I know! It's a Dogma film but it's not a film that will turn up great when you film it Dogma style. It's set on probably the smallest cabin in Norway with the whole family (mum, dad, 3 grown up kids(?) with their husband/ wife/ children and two inlaws.....and dont forget about the dog!)
