Mother of Mine Response

I really enjoyed the movie we finished today in class, Mother of Mine. I thought the film was done in a very interesting and believable way. The story of Eero really drew me in. It is such a "real" story. It is the way that people really would react to the complex situation.

An American version of the same movie would have capitalized on the emotions and made it far more dramatic. Instead, it was understated, straightforward, and honest. Perhaps this is a contrast between Scandinavian films and the US.

Another part of the film that I appreciated was the beautiful scenery. Skane seems like a beautiful place!
