Comedy and tragedy
12 February 2012 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

They are in their early 35s, the hosts and the guests arriving at Katinka's birthday party. They expect everything to be as expected, when a terrible accident appears. The hostess' brother comes to the party together with his pick-up for the night! A girl who leads a simple quiz show in a commercial TV channel.

The problem isn't her vulgarity, but the fact that the quiz girl starts the thinking and feeling about the sophisticated's shortcomings. The screw is turned and they become more and more aware of their life being fakes, including love affairs, pregnancies and also the choice of not having children.

A very nasty but also compassionate film, which try to tear down the lies of an intellectual generation. It's their turn this time.
