‘Sweden’s Skarsgård and Norway’s Hovig both [excel] under Norwegian director Maria Sødahl’s attentive care. Their swings of emotion—from surly silences to tender handholding to frantic, almost hostile lovemaking—are all painfully real and carefully captured… Sødahl, who first gained attention with 2010’s Limbo, is an artist of quiet, disciplined observance.’—Stephen Witty, Screen
