Language: Swedish English Sub-Titles

Ernst and Cecilia seem to be a perfect couple, but when an accident leaves their son in a coma, their relationship begins to come apart at the seams. Their incompatible approaches to handling the trauma–-he is a logical insurance claims investigator, she is a more emotionally driven, kind-hearted art teacher–-threaten to alienate them from each other forever. Enter Walter, an enigmatic stranger who inserts himself into their lives and offers to help them and their son. Walter speaks to them only in French, serves them fine wine, reminds them of the importance of loving and helping others, and even persuades the uptight Ernst to let loose and dance in the living room. But it soon becomes apparent that Walter is not quite what he seems.

Michael Nyqvuist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Izabella Scorupco give controlled, compelling performances as the distressed couple who rediscover hope as Johan Brisinger’s austere color palette and minimalist mise-en-scene contrast beautifully with elements of magic realism in this story about the power of faith and the limits of logic.
