  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Five story strands that at first seem like individual vignettes gradually knit together in this witty, stylish ensemble-piece by a first-time director. It's a multiple award-winner on the festival circuit. Group dynamics, the overstepping of taboos and the terrible consequences of avoiding losing face – these cohere cleverly in a cinematically sophisticated whole. 'Offbeat lensing style and quirky humour...the perfomances, by a mixture of non-pros and little-known thesps, are impressively naturalistic and spontaneous. Ostlund has a knack for comedy.' (Leslie Felperin, Variety)
