"Same day, different lives"

Greenbelt 1, Cinema 2

My first time to watch a Swedish film so it was interesting to hear the spoken language. The main theme would be a look into different situations all occurring on the same day. An older couple dealing with their fear of immigrants taking over the country as well as being burglarized hires a bricklayer. The bricklayer's conflict with his own family who feels he doesn't spend quality time with them. Another family who moves all the time because the father is a doctor. The doctor having an affair with the wife of his colleague who turns out to be copying his entire life. Sort of keeping up with the Joneses situation. A woman whose husband leaves her for a physiotherapist, a younger woman he met during his recovery from a car accident three years ago. The flow of the story is continuous. When one family is having dinner the other family is doing the same. None of them get to interact with each other but you see them having the same problems. A good ensemble cast in a plot that reveals how ordinary people deal with their fears, conflicts, problems and life itself.
