Nete forces a doctor to tell her how much time he has left. 3 weeks, hardly any longer.

Nete's father moves in and puts even more strain on Nete's family and everyday life. They all try to cope with the situation - he has only three weeks left, and you don't argue with a dying man.

I spent two hours trying to find a good film in Foop! in Covent Garden when I bumped into this one last weekend. First thing I thought was "mmm.. A Danish film could be interesting... Why not? All I have to say is that for me was a really boring film, not just because the overseasoned script was made of the most stupid and predictable topics ( a father with a terminal illness + a know it all teenager+ an unfaithful hubby+ a gay brother about to be father with 2 lesbians... Come onnnn!!! What else???)..but because the film, despite the great performance of the main actress, is boring, is bland, it goes nowhere and has no sense of rhythm at all. Regarding the music, I better keep shut up or I think I will end this post with an ulcer.
