This wispy story is distinguished by its sweetness of spirit, and it comes straight from Kold.
Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post  full review
 
A heart-wrenching central performance anchors Mads Matthiesen's intimate, empathetic drama about a Danish bodybuilder who aims to grow up as he nears middle age.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
 
A largely likable tale about a 38-year-old man-child trying finally to grow up.
Manohla Dargis, New York Times  full review
 
A sweetly muted domestic drama struggling to contain a fierce and ancient folk tale.
 
A good tale, simply told.
Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice  full review
 
The low-key drama is well-crafted and likable as far as it goes, but there's not enough narrative impetus or depth to maintain more than passing viewer interest.
