    Like the director, the cast seems to have burrowed into the material, made all the more wrenchingly realistic by Dogme precepts.
  2. An emotionally honest character piece that avoids moralizing or offering soggy excuses.

    Although the plot might sound like the stuff of a soap opera, a smart script, strong performances and an ideologically determined lack of filmmaking niceties result in a shattering, deeply felt work.
