A good example of simple and realistic Swedish film-making.
22 September 2011 | by jeniyaSee all my reviews

I caught this film on VOD as I'm learning Swedish and already knew Peter Haber's work through the Beck films and so gave it a chance. I really enjoyed the un-starriness of it all, one of the things I love about European film-making with Swedish films becoming a firm favourite.To me the film showed perfectly the tedious and mundane lives the main characters lived which are only really enlivened when Simon and Ingrid start to fall in love. The passion and anxieties exhibited by the characters felt to me very real and very grounded and therefore more believable.I felt it also showed well the far reaching consequences that can occur when people have affairs and the difficult choices people have to make when they try to grab that last piece of happiness, that they thought they might never experience again. All in all it's worth trying to catch if you are tired of Hollywood and want something a little different.
