A tragicomic tale about the gloomy Connie Nielsen who has been emotionally detached since her father two years earlier committed suicide - on his birthday of all days. Connie's mother, Bodil, has taken to the bottle and lives through her 1982 participation in The Eurovison Song Contest; and Connie's kid brother, Christian, has become an overweight bully beating up those smaller than him. To put it mildly, time seems to have ceased and the family ties are hanging by a thread. The otherwise annual caravan trip to the Danish island Langeland was buried along with the father and hasn't been repeated since - until now.

Touching, strong movie
26 February 2014 | by AntiqueAuntieSee all my reviews

Yes, there's black humor, but above all there are real emotions pictured, a broken family whose members can't cope with the actual situation after the tragic death of one of theirs. Mia Lyhne is hardly a beginner, but her acting was a discovery for me in this film. Lyhne's eyes and her face speak more than words and without her participation in this film, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it so much. The film is not long, but it is full packed with real feelings, real heartaches, real sorrow. Within an hour or so, I had made friends with the main protagonists and while more than once I did not understand the choices they made, it was more than enjoyable to observe how they get out of a sad loop and get a grip on their life. Kudoz to the young film director and congrats to Mia Lyhne! Having said that, I must stress that all the other actors play real, strong, memorable characters. I won't forget this piece in a long time.
