excellent
23 December 2005 | by dpcrichton-gillSee all my reviews

To me this film was an excellent portrayal of a man cast into a new world of sadness by the death of his beloved wife.The portrayal of a depressed and very lonely man by Aron Nordensson alone made the film worthwhile. Based on the novel by respected Swedish Poet and Novelist Göran Tunströms this is not your average action filled drama but a very convincing story far removed from the all too clichéd predictable dramas we see so much of these days. Tunström's story of both father and son longing for some kind of happiness or contentment in their lives is very poignant. A gem of a movie in every aspect.
