An under appreciated gem about modern parenthood
30 June 2017 | by davidajgpSee all my reviews

When I decided to watch this film my expectations were modest. I thought it was going to be like every other Ulf Malmros film: funny, fresh and a bit of drama. I never imagined such an intelligent and deep piece of filmmaking. Maybe I've underestimated this director as in hindsight his comedies usually have some hidden depths to them. This film is also hilarious in parts. But the focus lies in the drama this time. Without telling you to much about this film which is about modern parenthood in Stockholm (the city being a good symbol for our progressively changing world). It raises questions about our fundamental way of being; what is right and wrong? Though Ulf Malmros just observes our behaviours never clamping down with a moral judgement. Strongly recommended and I hope more people see this film.
