Moland ... has a fine eye for landscapes, but an even surer touch with actors.

The movie is to be admired for refusing to romanticize alcoholism and for finding, in its bleak story, much humor and emotion.

Apollo Guide

Contrived or not, anything that stirs raw emotions as Aberdeen does is worth a viewing.

Spirituality and Practice

A gripping film about the tattered ties of familial love that matter even to ferociously wayward and addicted individuals.

A strangely lyrical tale of addiction and family distance.

Evokes the long, lonesome noir tableaux of American painter Edward Hopper.

The acting alone can't fill the motivational gaps.

Hans Petter Moland avoids the usual movie cliches of addiction and abuse in his fierce, discomforting portraits...

Grips us precisely because its actors are so utterly absorbed in their roles, so unfettered and nakedly expressive.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The material is treated with such brutal honesty and the performances are so strong that it actually makes what should be stale material look fresh.

Combustible Celluloid

For all its attempts at bending the rules, Aberdeen still comes off as frustratingly conventional.

An uncompromising family tale, one that's dark but lyrical and moving in its rendering of the ties that bind even the most dysfunctional families, despite valiant efforts to destroy them.

Kim Morgan

It's a twisted, very human ride where the remarkable, effortless acting of both Headey and Skarsgard is rich with sympathy, heartbreak and morbid humor.

The people who made the Scottish Aberdeen could have saved themselves some trouble if they'd come to America and watched a couple weeks' worth of TV movies.

No matter how much insight we eventually gain into Tom and Kaisa one must ask exactly who would want to gain insight into these people.
