What’s fascinating about Matias Armand Jordal’s stirring father-son portrait is the emotional strength displayed on the younger side of the equation. Twelve-year-old Pal (Odin Waage) and father Roger (Fridtjov Saheim) suddenly find themselves minus one beautiful person, mother Kristine, after an unexpected accident. Jordal’s knotty drama shows how getting through life after death can bring out the best and the worst in those who are left behind.
