The entire movie was shot with two-camera technique. According to the director this makes it easier to use actor improvisation. Most scenes are also shot with long focal lens. Apart from the visual effect actors did not know where the cameras were. See more »
The scenes that are supposed to take place in the flat in Stockholm, must have been shot in Denmark, as the electrical switches on the wall are clearly of the typical danish brand "FUGA". See more »
I rarely give a 10 rating to a film even when I really enjoy it but this film is the rare exception. The script is perfect, the directing is perfect, the casting is perfect, and the story has profound meaning for the viewer.
The film shows how family and business obligations can change people's character and desires. For example, Hollywood is filled with couples whose desires change because of life experiences. It is also true of the business world. Unfortunately that is why divorce is so common in those areas. A couple may start out completely compatible and then one of them has new vistas opened to them.
