Storyline

Autumn 1978 in suburban Sweden. Everything seems to be fine with the middle class Bendrick family with their two teenage children and a younger son, until the mother starts seeing her first love again after 20 years. Just like their badly built house, the family façade starts slowly crumbling into pieces. The daughter, 15, finds her first love, and the boys too are puzzled by their own questions around adolescence and sexuality. The father tries to keep up a happy face, while the youngest son is the first and the most sensitive to realize how the family is heading towards a disaster. Written by Markku Kuoppamäki

under the surface
19 March 2002 | by doubleo7See all my reviews

Brilliant black comedy with simple but intelligent acting. This family is driven to insanity, especially the father when his wife realizes that she can't go on living in a boring suburb. After the explosion they found out they need each other more than ever.

More Swedish please!
