A decent pretty interesting movie
11 February 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Four shades of brown kept my attention for three hours which at least makes it a pretty good movie.

The movie is four independent but related stories told in parallel. In my view the common theme is fatherhood and how lack of empathy can ruin the lives of your family members.

The film does an excellent job in unfolding the minds of what at first glance seems to be admirable persons (the four fathers). The revealing truth is that they really are more or less perverted by their past, a fact they all seem to suppress and/or be unaware of.

However the film merely illustrates this dilemma, and doesn't teach us anything new. It dares not go any deeper when depth is needed, and could therefore be regarded as shallow profiting on strong emotions. It is also uneven in the acting and story. This could all be forgiven because of some great acting, and what seems to be an honest intent with the movie.

In all it's a pretty good movie that deserves a wide audience.
