That Time of Year

A family gathers for Christmas, but disruption comes in the shape of a sister with a dark past who shows up with a new guy and a stepdaughter. A chaotic portrait of a family, developed from an idea by Paprika Steen, where secrets are about to be spilled and confrontations will test the cheerful spirits. Naturally, a snowstorm prevents everybody from trying to escape. A fine cast, but it’s never funny or moving enough to make much of an impact. The intended emotional finale ends on a sour note.

2018-Denmark. 101 min. Color. Directed by Paprika Steen. Cast: Paprika Steen (Katrine), Jacob Lohmann (Mads), Mikas Maximus Dalhoff Christiansen (Jens Peter), Fanny Leander Bornedal, Sofie Gråbøl, Karen-Lise Mynster. 

Trivia: Original title: Den tid på året
