I'm fairly pissed at Hallström for royally screwing up this film. It starts out with some fabulous dialogue, Kristin Scott Thomas is outstanding (as always) and then at some point totally unnecessary and stupid sub-plots get thrown into the mix that lead to the cheesiest resolutions I've seen in years. This could have been a really good film. Shame on Lasse. He's on my blacklist now.
4 stars for the good bits. -10 for the cheese.
