A beautiful end to the Elling trilogy
The original Elling film is one of my all time favourite movies, but I found the prequel Mors Elling (Mother's Elling) a bit disappointing. So I was a little apprehensive about this, the third and final film in the trilogy, but in the end I wasn't disappointed. Petter Næss, who directed the first film, but not Mors Elling, was back in the director's chair, and I think it shows.
Overall, Elsk meg i morgen (Love Me Tomorrow) is a little darker and more sombre than its predecessor, but it has a lot of subtlety and emotional weight. The acting is superb, and I would definitely recommend you watch this film if you get the opportunity. (Although you'll probably have to try to get hold of the Norwegian DVD release, which does have English subtitles.) I would though recommend that you watch the original Elling film first, as Elsk meg i morgen kind of assumes you know the main characters already. You don't need to watch Mors Elling to appreciate either of the later films though, it just provides more background.
