Maria's younger brother has died of cancer, her father is despondent, and her mother has slipped into a prolonged depression, but while visiting her aunt she meets a young boy who helps her reenergize her family. Norwegian director Torun Lian handles this potentially maudlin material with craft and intelligence, delving into the adults' emotional withdrawal and the daughter's craving for solace and affection. Svein Krovel's elegant cinematography constantly probes the facade of calm composure embodied by the family's sterile modernist home.
