The Norwegian play is extremely theatrically and pretentiously, in a poor way. Some glimpses of really good play is spotted here and there but a real quality difference are seen from the Swedish actors, holding a much higher quality. It takes a while before the real themes of the movie, realization and conciliation of the characters flaws and misdoings is addressed and even though the movie is only 75min long, slow rhythm is present, in the sense of slow logic movement of the happenings. The use of background music only is chosen in some of the scenes, unfortunately this only add's up to the pretentiousness of the movie as a whole.
