Thin but still interesting social comedy
2 January 2002 | by psteierSee all my reviews

Thomas Graal and Bessie's life from their marriage day until their first born is about two years old.

Pleasant comedy with some very good sequences, especially the first spat. A nice look at middle class life at the time, including 'modern' child raising.

Though it has the same main characters as Thomas Graals bästa film (1917), the two films are really unrelated. Also, this film is not full of the fantasy and flashback scenes that make the other film sometimes hard to follow.
