"Cinematographic, situational and dense..."
8 July 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Swedish screenwriter, producer and director Jesper Ganslandt's third feature film which he wrote, premiered in the Venice Days section at the 69th Venice Film Festival in 2012, was screened in the Vanguard section at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival in 2012, was shot on location in Vänersborg and Stockholm in Sweden, Paris, France and London, England and is a Swedish production which was produced by producer Jesper Kurlandsky. It tells the story about a student in London named Lova, a model in Paris named Elin and a doctor named Katarina, her husband and their two daughters named Elsa and Lovisa who comes to attend the 70th birthday of their mother.

Distinctly and finely directed by Scandinavian filmmaker Jesper Ganslandt, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws an at times moving portrayal of three sisters' relationship with each other and their individual relationship with their mother. While notable for it's naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, sterling cinematography by cinematographer Linda Wassberg and production design by production designer and art director Catharina Nyqvist Ehrnrooth, this character-driven and dialog-driven story about family relations and more specifically about women which is divided into three chapters is hardly comparable to the instructor's more reflective directorial debut "Falkenberg Farewell" (2006) and his far darker second feature film "The Ape" (2009), depicts several interrelated studies of character and contains a great score by Swedish composer Fredrik Emilson.

This conversational, generational, humorous and theatrical drama which is set mostly in a country house in Sweden and where a family reunion brings a mother named Sigrid closer to her daughters, them closer to one another and alienates a husband named Janne, is impelled and reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, subtle continuity, colorful characters and the commendable and prominent acting performances by Swedish actresses Maria Göranson, Helena af Sandeberg, Alexandra Dahlström, Carolina Gynning and Swedish actor Olle Sarri. A cinematographic, situational and dense character piece and an unusual family portrait.
