Sweden, shortly before Christmas. Surgeon Rickard is told the job he expected goes to a Dane, because of his substance abuse. It's too late to cancel dinner with his in-laws. The guest couple announces their in-vitro is a success. Then Richard's wife learns he cheated her with Sofie. Meanwhile ugly hag Anita trades drugs to afford a taser to use on her ex Olaf and his former physiotherapist. Workaholic builder Anders is disgusted by his grieve-deranged client Knut's plan and decides to spend time on his family, not just money. Written by
Excellent film well worth seeing it. Three stories of different couples and families going through a crisis. The family environments portrayed depict various stages of incommunication: the story of the bricklayer features a couple of workdays where he neglects the common life with his woman and daughter to enlightening and corrective results, while on the opposite side, the couple that employs him has long lost the struggle of affection and relationship with their daughter to a desperate end.
The isolation atmosphere, loneliness, infidelity and lies pervade the whole plot of the film, where speaking out (sometimes violent) the untold and held back feelings seem to unravel the thing and let a beam of hope in.
The plot develops at a relentless pace, no moment to ease up or get bored.
