Pernilla August's Söderberg adaptation with Mikkel Boe Følsgaard ('A Royal Affair') and Michael Nyqvist (the Millennium trilogy) is "a tale of ruinous extramarital passion, elevated by the film's visual restraint - a cool Nordic palette of creams and pale grays framed in Academy ratio." (Indiewire)
