Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
Follows a precocious, eleven-year-old Allan, who tries desperately to keep his dysfunctional, rural family together during the social upheavals of the early seventies. Allan reveres his father, Henry, the local milkman, and can't understand why others don't feel the same way.

Although I don't mind depressing and beautiful movies it get. This although is depressing on another level, simply because almost all movies from Scandinavia is social realistic, so to me it's just another one and I'm left with the thought: "Wow this is impressive, social realistic with a new theme we almost haven't heard of before" (sarcasm for the 'Sheldons' out there).
What would be impressive on the other hand would be that we (the Scandinavian countries) started to make something different - not just another social realistic movie. Then the ones that are made might actually make an impression on me.
Are we Scandinavians really this boring?
