Nete is a tough woman of 35 who runs her job, husband, and teenage daughter with a firm and efficient hand. Her father suddenly becomes ill. Seriously ill. Nete forces a doctor to tell her how much time he has left. 3 weeks, hardly any longer. Nete's father becomes bitter and introvert, but Nete insists that he come to live with her and her family the few weeks he has left. "You should die with your family." Nete's father moves in and puts even more strain on Nete's family and everyday life. They all try to cope with the situation - he has only three weeks left, and you don't argue with a dying man. Three weeks pass by. A month. Nete's father does not die, his appetite comes back, the doctors begin to have doubts as to the prognosis, and Nete has a problem. Space is limited in every possible way. Nete's husband seeks comfort outside of their home, her daughter begins to rebel, and as the relationship between Nete and her father has not been too good for years, things are bound to ...

Solid kitchen sink drama with Paprika Steen in her first starring role, and none too soon. She is excellent as a harried mother and wife who upon learning that her father is terminally ill, invites him to stay at her family´s already small apartment for his remaining weeks. Steen carries the film a long way, but is supported by a great cast: Ole Ernst has his best part in years as her grumpy, but ultimately goodhearted dad, Troels Lyby generates sympathy as her unfaithful husband and Molly Egelind does well as their teenage daughter. Jesper Christensen is also very good as an emotionally detached doctor, and Nikolaj Kopernikus turns in a finely tuned performance as Paprika´s gay brother. His first reunion after eight years with his estranged father is a memorably funny scene. Occasionally heavy subject matter is given equal doses of black humor and realistic drama, thanks to writer Kim Fupz Aakeson´s script and Jesper W. Nielsen´s directing. ***
