This strong family drama is largely about the relationship between a father and his daughter. We join a family drama, When the daughter is four years old, the mother leaves the home without taking her daughter. The daughter grows up with Dad Hasse whom she loves without reservation. The two tie a tight band. The film depicts how they handle daily life and the challenges it is to live with an alcoholic parent. There are many strong scenes and achievements that portray this life situation. This film also tells us how alcohol destroys both relationships and individuals.
Check out this movie too if anyone wonder why Mikael Persbrandt is one of the best actors in the world today. He is brilliant in this movie! He is able to reveal all aspects of the alcohol's horror. One gets both compassion and excuse for his character. Persbrand's ability to convey, raises this film to be both strong, credible and therefore a movie you will remember in the aftermath. Recommended.
