Well played nightmare after family tragedy
15 March 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A perfect little family is ruined by a freak accident on the way to holiday. We meet again the father and son trying to cope after the funeral. But dad isn't doing well at all, and is literary falling into pieces in grief over his loss, seeking comfort in the bottle, before seeking a kind of help his son can do without. The 12 year old son is on his own grief-stricken, and does his best, but is not able to get into his fathers world. Dad ends up in the hospital, where a new tragedy is about to happen.

The story is well played by Frithjof Såheim (the father) and Odin Waage (the son) is doing an outstanding debut. This heavy story is told with realism and love, and shows how life can go from pure happiness with life's little everyday troubles, to the family losing completely grip of the everyday events.

Not something to see while being depressed, but a strong heartfelt story. In the end, the story turns to a more hopeful setting, giving the title "Sammen" ("Together") meaning and hope.
