Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Suburbian passions
27 December 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a Swedish film about sexual jealousy, if anybody remembers that thing. Jealousy because of the past and because of the present. Jealousy which is totally destructive and sometimes irrational, but still including possible forgiveness.

This is about the bitter ex-wife who still after three years wants to be taken into a psychiatric clinic because of the divorce. It's about the surgeon, who is cheating about his job, his house, his mistress, but everything is revealed in the end. It's about the mason who arrives for a job at the house of a middle-aged couple and learns what real despair is.

This is hard to see and definitely not for children, although the violence is not extreme. Ann Petrén and Johan Eklund are almost magnificent and this ought to be sent by Sweden as candidate for the Academy Awards, although it's chances might be much doubted. Anyway this film is to be strongly recommended. The plot is extreme (and clever) but people like this do still exist.
