The relationship between Jacob and Alf is adorable and emotional attachment of both the characters is just amazing. It is really a wonderful depiction. At first, we noticed that Jacob is the only one who is on a search to find the connection of him with his ancestral roots but as the story progresses, we realize that Alf is also in the same shoes. The self discovery tag should also be given to Alf as he shows the determination to uncover the truth, no matter what.

However, the relationship of Alf and Freja seems to be less convincing because the two don’t seem to be emotionally connected. The two are conflicting over commitment but at the end of the movie, they are good. Moreover, the perfect shooting angles make the movie worth watching.
