Woman makes peace with self in the wake of meeting a trio of her ex-husband's lovers
9 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also saw this film at Sundance. It is one of those films that you want to return to again and again. I would place it in a category with The Hairdresser's Husband. Sometimes the music of the Serbian band had the comedy of the dancing husband in Hairdresser's Husband. However, the ending isn't as depressing Hairdresser's Husband. This is more a story of freedom found through making peace with loss. One minor correction in response to the initial reviewer of this film: to my memory, she is merely a landlord to the musician, not his lover. As I recall it, the romance came at the end of the movie. Escaping the chaos in her home surrounding the arrival of the three women with whom her husband had ties, she has a brief, sexual encounter with young man she meets in a hotel. Beyond plot, I recently traveled to Sweden and can say this film caught the color of this beautiful country. Too bad this isn't on DVD yet.
