Audience Reviews for Under the Sun (Under solen)

Cute but it falls short of a total success. Think of it as grumpy middle aged men but with Swedishness throughout.

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.
