Great!

At first I thought this was some sort of Dutch version of Festen, the story has major similarities with that movie, but when I saw this film that didn't bother me, because I was almost immediately drawn into the story. Granddad plans a reunion for the divided family in the Austrian Alps, because his wife hasn't got very long to live, and off course things go wrong between the family members... Pay attention to the sons under influence, very good acting.

And with some very memorable lines, like "Mother, please do us all a very big favor and please die as soon as possible".
