Storyline

The Runeberg family is an ordinary middle class family, with a house in a suburb, a car and three children. By vacationing in a rented house by the sea, the hope is that the tension and anxiety between Rune and Gunnel will disappear. However, instead of spending time with his family, Rune finds himself attracted to a young man, Petrus. Whatever happens next, Rune realizes, it will be like it never was before.

Great actors
14 June 2002 | by nancy_bladfaltSee all my reviews

Loa Falkman as the frustrated family father Rune Runeberg is the keeper of this movie. In Sweden he is mostly known as an opera-singer, and his talent as an actor is highly underrated. See the movie and enjoy his acting! Stina Ekblad is also great as the desperate wife, trying to cling to a marriage that is already dead.
