Thanks to Galmuchet for the storyline of this film first
"A man's effort to reunite his family unwittingly uncovers some painful secrets in this drama from Sweden. Magnus (Per Graffman) is a photographer who wants to do something special for his mother Elisabeth (Basia Frydman) in honor of her upcoming seventy-fifth birthday. Magnus thinks it would be good to get the family together for a group portrait, since there aren't any pictures of his parents and siblings all together, and his father is in poor health. But as Magnus tries to reunite his family for a sitting." ~~Thanks to Galmuchet for this~~
I have tried to provide some storyline/plot to this film since it got nothing at all about this film. I also not quite understand why the rating is below 5 stars. Mikael Persbrandt is one of the best Swedish actors, his acting is believable, his facial expressions always show intention, compassion, intelligence with focusing and piercing blue eyes(?). I have seen him in a great Swedish detective TV mystery drama series and then some of the suspenseful thriller genre movies, none of them disappointed me. I don't think he would have chosen unwisely for a badly crafted screenplay.
