Freud Leaving Home

Rosha Cohen (Ghita Nørby) is about to celebrate her 60th birthday and the whole family is coming… but then she learns she has cancer. Susanne Bier’s first feature film is a lively portrait of a big, Jewish family where each member represents different philosophies; there’s the gay son flying in from Miami, the conservative daughter who’s obsessed with Israel and traditional Jewish values, the mother who survived the Holocaust, etc. They all have their overbearing moments and the film lacks depth. Still, entertaining enough, and there’s a few decent performances, including Nørby and Gunilla Röör.

1991-Sweden-Denmark. 103 min. Color. Directed by Susanne Bier. Screenplay: Marianne Goldman. Cast: Ghita Nørby (Rosha Cohen), Gunilla Röör (Angelique ”Freud” Cohen), Philip Zandén (David Cohen), Jessica Zandén, Peter Andersson, Palle Granditsky… Stina Ekblad, Torgny Anderberg, Peter Haber, Peter Stormare, Johan Rabaeus, Basia Frydman, Lars Lind.
