Strangely lacks tension before it takes up
3 February 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Many here thinks this is a great film, and only a couple of reviewers at giving in my opinion a correct picture of the film, since most is quite over-positive. But it's easy to fall off here for the first hour. For me the film first started growing after an hour. The story is more about guilt and communication.

Understand me correct. The film is really well acted, and the cast is good. And this is a film which is OK, but nothing more in a strange way. It's a solid independent film. The problem is - I don't know what should have been done otherwise. Maybe the direction is it. We understand early on that some small things, like opening a window is important, as it's also the title of the film.

The film is like a therapy session after a rape, and the consequences of it. And I'm not opposed to that, but somehow this is also a bit annoying. It's like what we've heard the consequences of a rape might be. What is troubling is the gathering of problems which follow. Sad problems, but is quite depression to see so much if it. Thankfully this changes towards the end.

Everything here is spot on, and I can't point out exactly what is wrong, because it is plausible everything that happens. Still I feel the film seem to be going into a bottomless pit, and somehow both the film and the players deserve more. Maybe it's a story like this which will have this kind of problem.

Somehow the film lacks a nerve for me in the first part. And I'd really like it to be different. Maybe it's me being in the wrong mood. But when the film starts getting interesting, when we're over the part we might guess what will happen. But with the last half our the film is getting to be more interesting for a common viewer. So stick in, even if you fall of after the half hour!
