Ulrik is reluctantly let out of prison after serving 12 years for murder. He has to cope with his gang, his ex, a few women - and a snitch. His son has a fiancé. Her family doesn't approve of murder. They have a nursery, they have principles. Ulrik is a somewhat gentle man. But how gentle can you be? ...and he's losing his hair. Written by
The story is about the oldest in the book of organised crime based drama: ex-con's past hinders him in starting over. That doesn't get in the way of this movie one bitthough. Skarsgard makes it work in this story of people who all took a beating from life somewhere without it becoming sentimental anywhere.
When getting back from prison his former buddies are waiting for him to get back in business with them. Skarsgards Ulrich just navigates through attempts to manipulate him and in the end does what he thinks is right. No big words, no big drama, just the subtle humor and Skarsgards solid Ulrich along with the strong performance of all cast members makes this movie full of outcasts a realistic yet entertaining watch.
