Autumn 1978 in suburban Sweden. Everything seems to be fine with the middle class Bendrick family with their two teenage children and a younger son, until the mother starts seeing her first love again after 20 years. Just like their badly built house, the family façade starts slowly crumbling into pieces. The daughter, 15, finds her first love, and the boys too are puzzled by their own questions around adolescence and sexuality. The father tries to keep up a happy face, while the youngest son is the first and the most sensitive to realize how the family is heading towards a disaster.

Mike M (fr) wrote: As a classical rookie, I couldn't say for sure whether it's as comprehensive as it often seems, but this is unquestionably a learned yet accessible film, allowing itself plenty of time to give both major and minor works an airing, while regularly unearthing fun biographical titbits.

True to the Batman mythos, well directed though it could have been a little longer and it would have made a phenomenal live-action Batman film.

Paul C (it) wrote: Very different from the other Argento's that I'd seen - but in a good way - a lot more elegant too, if that makes any sense. I'd definitely say it was up there with some of the best Hitchcock films from the 60s and is well worth watching. Some really creepy moments - especially the killings and the graveyard scenes and the music is, of course, exceptional being Ennio Morricone. Keeps you guessing and wrong-foots you as to who the killer is right until the last 10 minutes too.
Philip Z (gb) wrote: All the whimsy gave me a headache, and after about an hour of it I was ready for it to end. Now, I've liked screwball comedies before, in fact, Howard Hawks' His Girl Friday is one of my favorite movies from this period, but Arsenic and Old Lace just didn't do much for me. I'm giving it a 6 because I can't totally dismiss a film that has this much energy and with the inclusion of Peter Lorre and a Frankenstein look-a-like, nor can I deny the immense charm of actor Cary Grant. However, if I were being honest about how I personally felt watching the movie: I'd probably give it a 5.
Nicolette H (kr) wrote: I don't know what it was but this movie just didn't sit well well with me. I mean it was good but I found it slow at times. Juliette Binoche is amazing. I don't see what the big deal was with Kirsten Stewart. I mean yes I think this was the best performance from her, so far but I didn't think it was better than other performances from the year and definitely not that great to get a Oscar Nomination. The story was interesting but really the only reason I would say to see it is for the performances. Really isn't a movie I need to own or have watched since.
Jason M (br) wrote: Pleasingly non-flashy and non-thrilling, and I liked the stiff and eerily photo-realistic animation, but the story is a little over-simplified and just doesn't have the umph it aspires to.
