Original piece but slightly irritating
The film is original because of its structure, which is created by two elements. The lead character, Sam is a script writer and the film goes back and forth between him writing a script and the enactment of this script. This makes the audience aware of the dialogue, which is good and realistic. As the film progresses Sam becomes more and more convinced that his wife is having an affair, and though this is entertaining at times it is also irritating to watch. It becomes difficult to identify with Sam because of his increasingly irrational behavior. All in all, the film is saved by its originality and by Tommy Kenter and Marika Lagercrantz who do a very convincing job as the two main characters.
