Emotional and heart-wrenching movie
3 July 2019 | by martinpersson97See all my reviews

Whilst the IMDB rating for this movie is somewhat low, it was truly deserving of its Guldbagge wins and nominations(which is basically the swedish Oscars).

The performances was fantastic from each of the actors and you truly feel for everyone of these characters, the main girl, the grandma and her newfound popular friend, who has sort of her own character arc during the course of this movie.

This is a movie I would recommend without a doubt, whether you speak swedish or not. It's a heart-wrenching movie about cancer and the bond between mother and daughter, and that is something it does really well.

I give it a 9 out of 10!
