The siblings Linus, 19-years-old, who are taking driving licence and Vanja, 17-years-old, who’s still in school. Their mom Eva works night shift at a hotel. We get to follow them during one month. Linus and Vanja begin to realize that they are living in a universe of their own. And there is neither room for the mom or boy- and girlfriends. At first it is only the longing love in unspoken thoughts. But when thought gets into words they realize that they are each others perfect half. They are drawn closer to each other and finally can’t resist the taboo temptation in each others bodies. At first they deny, lie and try to resist. It’s about shame and guilt and forbidden feelings which leads to a point where everything is at stake.
Review by Viewer:
Yes, this is a movie that you either love or hate. I loved it, but my friends were sickened by it. It’s a very strong love-story between Linus and Vanja, and as Vanja said it: “You are my perfect half and the mistake is that I was born as your sister”. The lines are touching, and the actors are very good. The woman who wrote it was also very good, and I have a faint memory of this being her first movie.
But the incestuous theme disturbs many; the siblings loving each other, the mother wanting her son…If you can’t watch such, then avoid this movie! But it sure is one of my favorites…
