This film is politically charged. In some ways it's so over-the-top and anti-capitalism, anti-government, anti-everything that is offers some deep conversations, if you're willing to let it have that affect on you. For example, there is a fascinating scene, that I really enjoyed, where young teen boys ask how their aunt died. Their parents respond in a very politically correct way, avoiding that she killed herself. However, Viggo (husband of the lady who committed suicide) blatantly tells the boys what happened. This film is filled with moments like this: culture makes sure everything is clean, but life is not clean and people (children as well) should know that. The film is good for that reason. But then the film will anger you. It seems very purposeful every time it happens. The acting is so good, and makes you wonder the backgrounds of each of the actors because they really understood this anti-everything life.
A unique and disturbing experience

The acting was very good. This is a back-handed compliment, but it was like every character was playing themselves, because you really have to understand your role to be good at it.
Disturbing. There is no absolute truth for them, Christianity is laughable to each of them (young children included), and there is a constant looseness to the film that disrupts my spirit.
Different, but good.
This is a very unique film, and for that I give it a 3 kernel, but the story has some major holes and struggles that leave me questioning the reasoning for the film.
Very beautiful. Great angles. Can't go wrong with the PNW!
I hated this film, but I liked it enough to watch it. It raised up questions in me, and although I wish I could have the time back there's something I enjoyed about watching it.
