Storyline

When Mette and her father are left alone over the Christmas holidays to paint the new nursery the father ends up alone most of the time. The 16-year-old Mette is always off with her friends at the disco or skating, and the father does not mind until he discovers that young Jønne has taken some semi-nude photos of Mette and clearly is intending to go further in their relationship. Suddenly the father starts hanging out with Mette and her friends as they practice winter sports together - and there is hardly anything stranger, or more embarrassing, as far as Mette is concerned. It is clear that father and daughter are heading toward a change in their relationship as both have to adjust to her "growing up." Written by Ørnås

Looking on the fact that the movie is from 1983 it is very good and real of it's age and take an important topic for a matter. The jealousy from the father is very natural when the wife is in the hospital and can't give any advice on how to treat a young woman. It is interesting to watch how they get along. I've watched it more than once, but every time I see a new psychological question in my mind. It is worth the time, but don't watch it if you have a hard time watching jalousie in a father-daughter relationship.
