Storyline

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 ...

Okay is OK
26 April 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Whatever you see in Danish movies right now seems to be likeable. Their relation dramas are real dramas, but almost always on a level everybody knows from their own lives.

This is another great appearance by Paprika Steen, not aware of how much she dominates her family with her flashing eyes, including her dying father. She doesn't understand why everybody flee, but they prefer that instead of confronting her.

Great performances also by Ole Ernst and Troels Lyby. This is a piece of reality, but dramatic all the same.
