Decent little movie, nothing too special
16 December 2012 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

To cut things clear, I only wanted to watch this movie to see how Alexander Skarsgård is as an actor because I loved his brother Gustaf's acting in Evil and The Invisible.

This movie focuses around about a decade of Sara's life. After 15 years of taking care of her mother, She wants to buy back her childhood home, get a job and have a family. Her first boyfriend (played by Skarsgård) proposes out of desperation. At the wedding, her mother bursts into tears... To say Sara doesn't take it well is an understatement. Later Skarsgård and Sara get divorced.

Years later, she is in a relationship with her colleague, Stefan (how it's established could have been much better than what it was). He wants to buy a mansion, at the place where Sara works (of which she is pretty high up in the office) Stefan (her new boyfriend) wants a promotion (badly I might add). When Stefan finds out this promotion is going to Sara instead of him, they break up after a big fight.

Again, years later, she has bought her childhood home, now it's in need of repairs. The person doing the job also establishes a relationship with Sara but Sara doesn't see it that way. After that he leaves. Soon we realise Sara is pregnant with his child. When she finally does have the baby, it dies soon afterwards. She then re-establishes her relationship with the person repairing the house before going to the funeral.

Most of the actors were pretty good, like Alexander Skarsgård, Linda Zilliacus, Hugo Emretsson and Alexander Karim. The movie as I said could have been better (I don't really know how it could have been better but I just think so).
