Jeremy Heilman MovieMartyr.com What initially seems too blunt and too neatly constructed develops considerable texture as this particularly concise film unspools. Rated: 61/100 Aug 11, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member ...drama som fängslar med många tvära kast - hundraprocentig tonträff och extremt välspelat! :-) Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Four of the best Swedish actors in a great movie that is all about the dialogue and interhuman interaction and basicly only plays in the dining room, bedroom and kitchen Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member hmph. nothing much happened although it seemed that a lot happened in the persons' relationships. sigh. was expecting more.... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A good promise, deceives halfway through. Still better than Hollywood crap. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked this film about two couples that have grown tired of each other. The film does a good job of showing how one conversation can change a person's life. I liked how the topic of having children was approached. The ending is realistic, but I hoped it would go another way. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Dialogen flyder staerkt, flot baaret af de gode skuespillere og karakterdrevne roller i instruktoers Simon Staho's nye svenske film. Udfra devisen at det indimellem skal gaa saa grueligt galt, foer man indser hvad man har at miste, udspiller der sig, i en raekke enkle indstillinger med vellykket spil, et faengende afdaempet aegteskabsdrama. Der er vist en meget stille og svag ironisk klang, men ellers holdes historien oppe af den interaktion der er mellem filmens faa personer. Det er et kammerspil, det er minimalistisk, det kunne vaere filmet teater og det er dermed ikke for alle. Men for voksne taenkende mennesker, der indimellem gider bruge tid paa at reflektere over egent liv, kaerligheden og den slags store og smaa spoergsmaal, der er den slet ikke saa tosset. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
