| Underrated coming of age film on tender subject
Adrian is a teenager with a secret he doesn't realize is one until his father dies unexpected. His mother, who kept him safe, for all this time falls into a deep depression and Adrian is left to his own devices. Bullied in school he has only the albino Emilie as his only sympathizer. Things slowly deteriorate as Adrian struggles with his identity and unfortunate events.

Lars Saabye Christensens book about an self induced outcast in the conservative 50ies in Norway is well filmed. The confinement Adrian finds himself in comes across well. The story is told quite cold and detached and although you feel for Adrians misfortune you don't feel closeness to him nor the other characters. You watch Adrian struggle but you can't see any further than the outside.
