Storyline

Thomas, a former doctor, a widower, lives alone in a basement apartment in Helsinki. His routine becomes even more limited when his misanthropic brother dies, reducing Thomas' human contact to practically nil. As with many seniors, he's basically invisible to passersby, though Thomas in particular avoids engaging with those around him. When he runs into his estranged daughter Marie, he tries to create a bridge. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Nice but too long
19 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

I had a big problem with this film. There were a lot of nice scenes, but the film way too long. It didn't go further and I felt that I was watching more a documentary than a controlled fiction film.

What the film was trying to say about old people, I already knew.

I thought that the small kid in the picture was not believable and the scene at the hairdresser felt like it was from another movie.

There were good things in the film also. I have to admit, that the main actor did a nice job.

But somehow it was easy to guess what was going to happen in the film. It was somehow too obvious.

I think it was an overrated film and should have been at least 15 minutes shorter. Or the should be more things to fill the story.
