Storyline

Eric and Elin meet as adults and reminisce about the summer when they met for the first time. Their parents Linda and Peter were both stuck in heavy drug abuse but for a couple of months they all lived together as a family. The parents struggle with their addiction and the children in their turn struggle not to get sucked into this dirty and violent world. This turbulent time together still defines who they are and what they became: Parents who in spite of addiction try to bond with and find love for their children and those children's struggle to live and to survive. As the new family is torn apart Linda and Peter are forced into making the most horrible of decisions - turning away a child.

A fantastic and tragic story
15 June 2021 | by martinpersson97See all my reviews

This might well stand up there with all of the Swedish greats, which is not to say a small success. Attested by its Guldbagge nominations.

Told in two parallell storylines, it conveys a great sense of both the joys and the ending of youth, as well as coming to grips with your harmful past.

The performances are great from everyone involved and you really feel for all of these characters, it's by no means black or white.

Overall, it's artistically done with a good sense of cinematography and character writing.

Should definitely by experienced by everyone!
