Storyline

Sweden, shortly before Christmas. Surgeon Rickard is told the job he expected goes to a Dane, because of his substance abuse. It's too late to cancel dinner with his in-laws. The guest couple announces their in-vitro is a success. Then Richard's wife learns he cheated her with Sofie. Meanwhile ugly hag Anita trades drugs to afford a taser to use on her ex Olaf and his former physiotherapist. Workaholic builder Anders is disgusted by his grieve-deranged client Knut's plan and decides to spend time on his family, not just money. Written by KGF Vissers

3 May 2010 | by leforcatSee all my reviews

Take Swedish film of 2003. Take away Bergman, Moodysson, Jarl...

You're left with people bitching and puking, filmed with no concept and no direction.

Camera wandering aimlessly, 75% of it shaky close-ups. Dialogue obviously badly improvised.

Obscenities.

Good idea wasted.

I'm sure the actors had a wonderful experience, though.

If you're in for mentally exhausting experience of people quarreling - have a go. Others: beware!
