Worth seeing
15 March 2002 | by dim404See all my reviews

Regina Lund played well and the photo was pretty good. The atmosphere very Swedish about life in a village and all the secrets and all things people don´t want to talk about, very realistic in my opinion. It+s a description of someone coming to painful insight. The heroine´s daddy was a bully and a child molester, among other unpleasant things.It´s not a masterpiece but it´s fair cinema.
