Under the Sun (Under solen) (2000)
Critic Reviews for Under the Sun (Under solen)
Under The Sun is a decent, polished and rather coy romantic indulgence, just the kind of thing for people who like the idea of the farm but can't abide the dirt.
It's like an Ingmar Bergman parody of what used to be racy about Swedish cinema -- sexy and sentimental and absolutely gorgeous to look at.
What's most surprising -- and enjoyable -- is Under the Sun's earnestness and simplicity.
Try to block out the heavy-handed symbolism and predictable plot, and concentrate on the wonderful Lassgärd.
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.
