Roman Polanski's Carnage is a celebrated black comedy nominated for both Golden Globe awards and the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. Penelope and Michael Longstreet and Alan and Nancy Cowan have never met. But when their sons end up in a fight, they meet in Penelope's and Michael's chic Brooklyn apartment to act as adult people to discuss what has happened and try to find a solution. But soon the children's conflict is forgotten, and the disaster is a fact when the curse words shoot like bullets over the table in the perfectly furnished apartment and completely other questions are put on test. Jeanette Gentele rates the film 5 out of 6 in SvD and writes: "Carnage is not a deep thinking piece, but very good entertainment, where the actors obviously have had a lot of fun and let the audience share the joy."
