Worth to see, if you have read the book
8 May 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I don't think anyone who has not read the book will enjoy this much. It's slow, without much of a pay-off. If you have read the book, you might appreciate the take on the characters, the setting and the moods in it.

Set in Copenhagen in the 1920s, the movie feels more dystopian than you would expect. Close-ups on faces, old tunes and disoriented drunken dialog makes the whole movie feel quite surreal at times. You follow the literature critic Ole Jastrau, as he slowly turns to alcoholism. The movie goes back and forth between his drunk moments and his sober ones, the latter being less frequent as the movie goes on. Despite this, the movie does shy away from most of the drunk antics, and they are mostly implied. You see him in a party, the atmosphere escalating - and then you see him the next day, all cleaned up. This works well, and helps illustrate how he is spiraling out of his "good" life.

There is a potential in the book, this man's journey to tear apart his life, but this potential is not done justice by the movie.
