“Yes, yes, it follows the somewhat predictable story line of girl meets girl, girl falls in love with girl, girl is in denial, and girls end up together; but the movie was a lot more than just a lesbian love story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe family dynamic for starters, the father-daughter estranged relationship, all the secrets the family carries along, it reminds me of u0026quot;The Villageu0026quot; where these group of people live a somewhat unrealistic peaceful and violence free environment, but nonetheless reality sets in and the inevitable happens.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLife long journeys are never easy, and they are what they are – sometimes you will try to pretend it is not there screaming at your face, but it will be short lived… Mia is the example in this movie, and so is her father, who has to find within himself the courage to pick up the pieces of a recent past in order to mend his relationship with his daughter.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGrowing up has nothing to do with age.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBesides a great story, I have to commend the director for her choice of location – the landscape is extremely bucolic, and inviting; also the soundtrack with songs from Swedish band Kultiration.. Super!!!”
