Audience Reviews for Under the Sun (Under solen)

  • Dec 11, 2012
    Cute but it falls short of a total success. Think of it as grumpy middle aged men but with Swedishness throughout.
    John B Super Reviewer

    Redemptive tale, lyrically told and filmed in golden hues, of a lonely Swedish farmer who hires a mysterious housekeeper with a past: can they save each other? Simplicity and the importance of trust have seldom looked so good.
    Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
