Description: In this eccentric comedy drama from Norway, Sara (Lena Endre) is a successful author who was married to Peter (Bjørn Floberg), an architect, until the death of their only child pushed their relationship to the breaking point. Sara lives in a large house by the ocean which Peter designed, while he lives with his new wife, Helen (Petronella Barker). Sara has started renting out space in the basement of her house to Bogdan (Goran Bregovic), a refugee from Serbia who is trying to makes ends meet as a musician. When Peter learns that Sara has a border, he pays her a visit to express his indignation, and later that night Peter is found in the basement, shot dead. As Sara tries to clean up the scene of the murder, a steady stream of women who knew Peter happen by, including Helen and his other woman Kaja (Rebecka Hemse), while Bogdan and a large group of friends come by to play some gypsy tunes.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
