This wispy story is distinguished by its sweetness of spirit, and it comes straight from Kold. full review

Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post

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. full review

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

A largely likable tale about a 38-year-old man-child trying finally to grow up. full review

Manohla Dargis, New York Times

A sweetly muted domestic drama struggling to contain a fierce and ancient folk tale. full review

A good tale, simply told. full review

Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
