Christian's sister commits suicide. Why? After his 4 friends graduate secondary school, they head off to a Swedish cabin for midsummer as previous years. Strange things happen. Is it his sister's spirit?
It's the last day of school. Christian (19) and his younger sister Sofie are on their way to a party together with their friends. They've got to finish studying for their finals, take the tests themselves, and then school's out for good. The party has come just at the right time, and is just what Christian needs; right up until the point his sister commits suicide in an upstairs bathroom.

I caught a screening of this movie at the Gothenburg Film Festival, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I hadn't seen any trailers or anything and didn't know what to expect, except that it was a danish teen-movie. It turned out to be a rather scary little movie, avoiding the worst clichés (although it is nothing new, it twists and turns (except maybe for the ending) and never gets predictable or boring) and it's got beautiful photo and very good music (Carpark North) and sound.
I think the actors did a great job all over - but I can't guarantee anything since that may have something to do with me don't speaking danish... :o)
I would certainly recommend to see it in a theatre with 800 other people screamin' out loud as I did...
