“Sweet, generous and tonally sure, Patrik, Age 1.5 has a nostalgic feel, and not just because of a soundtrack skewed toward last-millennium tunes and a hyperreal suburban setting lifted straight from “Pleasantville.”
   Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

This most observant and involving film has three strengths: It shows that a strongly family-oriented, middle-class suburbia is initially hardly idyllic for gays; the arrival of Patrik reveals fissures in Sven and Goran's relationship; and that Lemhagen, who plays against predictability at every turn, maintains suspense right up to the final minutes as to how everything may turn out for the three.”
— Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

One is never bored, thanks to the innate charms of Skarsgård and young Ljungman.
— Chuck Wilson, Village Voice

  1. :

    This film is really worth your time. It’s about family, about bonds, about love and relationships. It’s about neighbours and community. It’s about respect and prejudice, and changing the way people think and act. The movie is a reminder to us all in this day and age that there is no room for hate. Love comes from within and is infectious.
