Although in this genre, Kassikuld's productions have always shone with vitality and naturalness, Divorce in Peace seems especially real. Former real-life couple Jan Uuspõld and Liina Vahtrik hardly had to meditate for a long time to live in their roles in order to find the right key. They both play very naturally, and they are these people - like all of us. The humor is still funny, but there are no caricaturing manners…

As the main characters are played by one of Estonia's best actors Liina Vahtrik and one of the strongest comedians Jan Uuspõld, it is not surprising that the characters they portray are convincing and funny. The sarcastic dialogues of Aksel and Laura are the most enjoyable in the first part of the series.
