[A] difficult but ultimately rewarding film.

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.

holds the audience at an uncomfortable distance.

July 24, 2008 Full Review Source:

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.

The film's resolutions are either too facile or too vague.

Audience Reviews for Om jag vänder mig om (Daybreak)

[font=Century Gothic]"Daybreak" is a movie that consists of three storylines about the fragility of family that almost intersect:[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]1. Richard(Jakob Eklund), a heart surgeon, is not having a good day. First, he learns that he did not get the job he was expecting.(To make matters worse, he has already sold his family's home.) Then, his mistress, Sofie(Marie Richardson), tells him that she is pregnant...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]2. Anita(Ann Petren), who is still bitter three years later about her husband of twenty-six years leaving her for a much younger woman, is admitted to the hospital with chest pains and is released. Anita sells her medication and swaps some of it for a stun gun...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]3. Mats(Leif Andree) is a bricklayer who works mostly under the table to support his family. After having been stiffed on his latest job, he gets a lucrative offer from an older couple(Ingvar Hirdvall & Monika Lindstrom). Afraid of high crime in the neighborhood and after a home invasion, they ask Mats to wall up all of their windows...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Daybreak" is a pretty good movie but would have been better if the characters had cut down on the screaming and the confrontations had been handled with a bit of subtlety which only occurs towards the end. Of all the storylines, the third is by far the best because it is the most interesting and has the most to say.[/font]
