Alma Ekehed Thomsen,
There are too many cheesy films on Christmas out there... But I - (un)fortunately - tend to see the things that lie beneath, always when people with different generations/genders get together in a limited time and space, whether relatives or not, plus alcohol included... Den tid på året shows different attitudes and aspects in a witty and smooth manner, nothing is really over the top, perhaps all those elements do not occur within a day during one celebration.
And the cast is wonderful, incl. several of my favourite Danish performers (Gråbøl, Steen, Brygmann) who have really versatile characters to play. Additional point from me for the ending scenes where reality and common Xmas feeling (through weather, soundtrack) are astutely combined.
Definitely my 2nd favourite Xmas film - after Bad Santa.
