This extraordinary movie tells us the story about two sisters, Ninni and Marie. They are both middle-aged and pregnant for the first time. Ninni is a housewives who lives in a huge apartment with her successful husband Jonas and Marie is her opposite; working with animals and living in a small flat with her husband, the taxi driver Erik.
They are all visiting Harry, the father of Ninni and Marie, to celebrate his birthday. Marie is worried about her child, since it has stopped moving around. The two sisters and the husbands drive to the hospital to check that everything is all right. The mid-wife immediately hears the heart beat. Jonas wants Ninni to check her child as well. She doesn't want to, but he convinces her to do it anyway. No heartbeats are found and a doctor confirms that her child has died.
She is forced to give birth to her child and while she is being delivered, Marie is also giving birth to a child. A perfectly healthy child.
This movie is about jealousy and love. Ninni can't accept the loss of her child and she wants to share the baby with Marie. None of them feels any good and after a while, old secrets are to be revealed.
I really adored this movie, I was deeply touched by it. But don't see it if you're feeling down!
