Storyline

Anne, a successful lawyer, lives in a beautiful modernist home with her two daughters and physician husband, Peter. Yet when Gustav, Peter's troubled teenage son from another relationship, comes to live with them, she forms an intimate bond with him that jeopardizes her perfect life. And what initially seems like a liberating move for her soon turns into a disturbing story of power, betrayal, and responsibility with devastating consequences.

Authentic and convincing
12 February 2020 | by rezbdSee all my reviews

What I like about this movie:

  • The story is convincing.
  • Well acted. especially the main actress, she is outstanding.
  • Unlike other older woman younger man relationship movies, this movie seems quite authentic.
  • It dwells with various aspects of human psychology. The director and screenplay writer of the movie May el-Toukhy and Maren Louise Käehne. Both are women. They portrayed the psychology of a middleaged woman very well.
  • I like the camera works. Director May el-Toukhy has done a really good job.
  • The scenarios are good. Beautiful and peaceful in a sad way.
  • There are some brief bold scenes in this movie that I've never seen any other movies with this quality.


My reason for giving it 10/10 is that this is the best I've watched in this genre.
