Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] difficult but ultimately rewarding film."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"We don't really care about these people -- we just want someone to make them stop."
‑ Kim Morgan, L.A. Weekly
"holds the audience at an uncomfortable distance."
‑ Blake French,
"There is very little wrong here - the performances are uniformly strong - but there is very little to justify the time, either"
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"The film's resolutions are either too facile or too vague."
‑ Kent Turner,
"Involving and sometimes comically bleak but never fully convincing as drama."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"The movie is by turns darkly funny, grotesquely contentious and luminously familial."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Has a lot to say about urban life, and it's beautifully filmed and acted. But it's so relentlessly miserable and serious that it's not easy to watch."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"There isn't enough Zoloft on earth to sop up the weeping and gnashing of teeth. But the performances are good."
‑ , E! Online
"Vituperation can be cleansing, but only in smaller doses than the ones offered up here."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The Swedes just about have a patent on unrelenting dissections of marital discord."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"In short, fans of bleak Scandinavian drama are in for something of a treat."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Always interesting in its execution, but disappointingly pat in its resolution."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
