    After 19 weeks on the down slide, the box office grosses took an upward swing, thanks to the Fantastic Four. The latest comic-book adaptation--about a quartet of astronauts whose DNA is changed by a cosmic space storm--easily took the top spot with a whopping $56 million, pushing last week's champ, War of the Worlds down to second with $31.3 million.

Synopsis
Marianne and Johan meet again after thirty years without contact, when Marianne suddenly feels a need to see her ex-husband again. She decides to visit Johan at his old summer house in the western province of Dalarna. And so, one beautiful autumn day, there she is, beside his reclining chair, waking him with a light kiss. Also living at the summer house are Johan's son, Henrik, and Henrik's daughter, Karin. Henrik is giving his daughter cello lessons and already sees her future as staked out. Relations between father and son are very strained, but both are protective of Karin. They are all still mourning Anna, Henrik's much-loved wife, who died two years ago, yet who, in many ways, remains present among them. Marianne soon realizes that things are not all as they should be, and she finds herself unwillingly drawn into a complicated and upsetting power struggle.
