A very Slow Paced Film but Excellent Moral Story
3 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This black and white picture was filmed while Denmark was occupied by the Nazi in World War II. This film clearly shows the simple living conditions with a family who has a mentally disturbed son who thinks he is Jesus Christ and goes around quoting Bible scripture and is able to tell tragic situations that seem to face the family long before they happen. The acting was very well performed by all the actors and the director of the film showed his great talent in portraying deep facts about LIFE & DEATH and what LIFE is all about, which we all eventually face in the course of our lives on earth, sooner or later. You have to have a great deal of patience with this film, as it is very slow paced and very long and drawn out. Try to view the picture to the very End.
