Storyline

A small group of friends are gathered at Katinka's summer house to celebrate her birthday. The guests are all in their thirties, upper class, art world, liberal humanitarian bohemians. They sit on the floor smoking amongst books, antiques and modern art. The party sets off on a high note, when suddenly during dinner, two new guests arrive. Linda, a blonde game show hostess, is unexpectedly brought to the party by Katinka's brother. Linda is greeted warmly at first, her brusque and liberated manners are entertaining and fresh. But during the course of the evening Linda stretches the groups invisible social rules of hospitality. Contempt starts to grow, thus unfolding the groups hidden prejudices. Written by Anonymous

6 January 2012 | by syknottySee all my reviews

Wonderful pictures displaying some incredible camera-work. Impressive performances from a dedicated cast make for a well needed dark drama set where the workings of a group of friends are hurdled into conflict by the entrance of 'Linda'. Really a movie for the 30's crowd who will recognize the scenario which negotiates an important aspect of modern culture - the difficulty in allowing new members into existing circles. Yohanna Idha portrays Linda and her performance was not surprisingly awarded the Stocholm Film Festival actress of the year award -she was awesome. Anitha Schulmandid a wonderful job and Ulrika Ellemark also did one of the most powerful monologues I have seen come out of Swedish films in a long time. Coupled with the camera work and set - strong 9 points.
