Storyline

Nete is a tough woman of 35 who runs her job, husband, and teenage daughter with a firm and efficient hand. Her father suddenly becomes ill. Seriously ill. Nete forces a doctor to tell her how much time he has left. 3 weeks, hardly any longer. Nete's father becomes bitter and introvert, but Nete insists that he come to live with her and her family the few weeks he has left. "You should die with your family." 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. Three weeks pass by. A month. Nete's father does not die, his appetite comes back, the doctors begin to have doubts as to the prognosis, and Nete has a problem. Space is limited in every possible way. Nete's husband seeks comfort outside of their home, her daughter begins to rebel, and as the relationship between Nete and her father has not been too good for years, things are bound to ...

Just okay
22 July 2009 | by LscstllnSee all my reviews

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.
