Movie Info

This year at Katrine and Mads' house the family will once again be united for Christmas Eve, and on a traditional holiday like this, there has to be room for everyone: the divorced parents, the youngest sister and her new husband and not least the teenage daughter of the family, struggling to get her mother's attention. Underneath the surface the explosion lurks as flammable as a dry spruce and when the truth starts to appear, the illusion of holiday peace we so deeply insist on shatters.

Critic Reviews for That Time of Year (Den tid på året)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The cast includes numerous formidable talents... But they're all stuck trying to fill out two-dimensional roles in a directorial package heavier on generic professional gloss than conviction.

It's hard to see what Steen is really trying to say with other than 'Families, huh?'. The commentary doesn't get any sharper than that, and there's not enough humour here, or depth of characterisation, to sweeten the pill.

October 16, 2018 | Full Review…

A zesty script, fun performances and plenty of recognisable 'bah humbug' merit a seasonal play for audiences who need to have a laugh before diving into the real thing.

October 14, 2018 | Full Review…

That Time of Year is pleasant, if no great shakes, with a few wonderful actorly bits sprinkled across the familiar tears and laughs of families in perpetual love/hate with each other during holiday get togethers.

Whatever your own holidays are like, you should find plenty to laugh and cry at in That Time of Year.

September 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Steen's winning, warm turn as the movie's beleaguered central character goes a long way towards perpetuating That Time of Year's agreeable atmosphere...
