The grungy setting and unflattering photography are only camouflage for callow, creeping sentimentality.

Like the Coen brothers at their least convincing, the mix of low-grade depression and amped quirkiness never shakes off the feel of self-conscious posturing.
Patiently directed by Hans Petter Moland, Ulrik's journey back to life slowly draws you in.
Played for laughs drawn from characters rather than funny lines, the Norwegian film is a charmer with Stellan Skarsgard for once in a role worthy of his attention.
Skarsgard's utter finesse in the role provides a satisfying warmth.
