  • Summary: Daybreak is a film about people in a state of change. It is a story about the need for a chance in order to survive; it is a story about love being greater than hate. (Newmarket Films)

    Masterfully paced and constructed, and the performances are memorable.
  2. Reviewed by: Gunnar Rehlin
    One of the most impressive films to come out of Sweden in the past year. Ace acting, powerful direction and engaging storylines.
  3. To the extent that this difficult but ultimately rewarding film has a message, it's that you can't run away from who you are.
  4. Strongly acted by a highly competent ensemble.
  5. Reviewed by: Patrick Peters
    Shifting between bourgeois soap, tabloid parable and tale of the unexpected, this three-storied study of salvation in extremis makes for unsettling but compelling viewing.
  6. Reviewed by: Kim Morgan
    Though the acting is uniformly excellent, especially Petren in her bilious rage, Daybreak doesn't provide anything like the cumulative catharsis of, say, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." We don't really care about these people - we just want someone to make them stop.
  7. Reviewed by: Melissa Anderson
    A studied, overwrought look into Personal Crisis and Redemption.
