Imdb synopsis: Young woman engaged to be married finds herself in an affair with her stepmother's lesbian daughter.
We had the HARDEST time figuring out what language this movie was in. Since we were streaming from Netflix, there isn't too much to say about the subject on the screen. So similar to French, traces of German, a little English (which we all know is quite the mutt language)...we were so lost. Finally figured out it was Swedish and spent the rest of the movie hoping they would say the name of one of our furniture pieces. Or a kitchen appliance.
I wanted romantic but Mr. E was at a loss for something we hadn't seen recently in our own collection, so we turned, as always, to Netflix. "Romantic Movies," anyone? This movie is GORGEOUS. As in, almost every frame could be a still photograph in my house. The artistry behind a lot of the shots blew me away. There was bokeh and landscapes and Swedish simplicity around every corner of the frame. Just beautiful! The story wasn't particularly new- sort of a coming-out- but I think it was the details and the imagery that got me. Romantic, but sort of racy too, with all of the sex. Fair warning.
