Quotes

Frida: [to Mia; somber tone] I've never had such strong feelings for anyone as I have for you, but all you want to do is run away. "Start over"? Do you know how much I long to do that? But you're marrying Tim in three months. I'm an idiot. What are you up to? Do you love him? You can't marry Tim. I couldn't survive if you did.

More Than An Attempt...
23 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, yes, it follows the somewhat predictable story line of girl meets girl, girl falls in love with girl, girl is in denial, and girls end up together; but the movie was a lot more than just a lesbian love story.

The family dynamic for starters, the father-daughter estranged relationship, all the secrets the family carries along, it reminds me of "The Village" where these group of people live a somewhat unrealistic peaceful and violence free environment, but nonetheless reality sets in and the inevitable happens.

Life long journeys are never easy, and they are what they are - sometimes you will try to pretend it is not there screaming at your face, but it will be short lived... Mia is the example in this movie, and so is her father, who has to find within himself the courage to pick up the pieces of a recent past in order to mend his relationship with his daughter.

Growing up has nothing to do with age.

Besides a great story, I have to commend the director for her choice of location - the landscape is extremely bucolic, and inviting; also the soundtrack with songs from Swedish band Kultiration.. Super!!!
