No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Involving and sometimes comically bleak but never fully convincing as drama.
Vituperation can be cleansing, but only in smaller doses than the ones offered up here.
We don't really care about these people -- we just want someone to make them stop.
The movie is by turns darkly funny, grotesquely contentious and luminously familial.
The Swedes just about have a patent on unrelenting dissections of marital discord.
Has a lot to say about urban life, and it's beautifully filmed and acted. But it's so relentlessly miserable and serious that it's not easy to watch.
In short, fans of bleak Scandinavian drama are in for something of a treat.
There is very little wrong here - the performances are uniformly strong - but there is very little to justify the time, either
There isn't enough Zoloft on earth to sop up the weeping and gnashing of teeth. But the performances are good.
Always interesting in its execution, but disappointingly pat in its resolution.
