Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Unusual Scandinavian film, about a really screwed up family. I suspect most people will not actually enjoy it, but it is still worthwhile seeing, if only from a cinematic, language and cultural standpoint.

Leonid Korentajer (56): Excellent movie with a shattering climax. Takes some time getting used to, however. The (ab)use of hand-held camera can make one's head really dizzy - especially at the beginning of the movie. Try to get a seat as far as possible from the screen - it helps to address the problem.
