The first night Patrik stays in the house, he sneaks out of his locked room, and looks around the house. After playing Foosball, he picks up a book of drawings. The book is about the works of an iconic gay artist Touko Laaksonen, better known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland (8 May 1920 - 7 November 1991). Laaksonen was a Finnish artist most noted for his stylized all male erotic and fetish art and his influence on gay culture from the 1970s until the present. Many people believe that he was the most important creator of gay male erotic and semi-erotic art. See more »

This movie made me laugh and cry. I rarely watch films about gay men, but I must say this film was exceptional. It alludes to intimacy without actual sex scenes. The character development is a little bit questionable, but possible. The main theme though,if you can get past the fact that it is about 2 gay male partners, is the resolution of a blended family. It is also about people becoming more accepting of gay marriage and adoption. I thought the acting was great and the plot believable.
I rarely watch foreign films with subtitles, but I must say they were in large type and did not interfere with my enjoyment of the movie. If you don't like movies with happy endings this is not for you.
