Redefinition of "empty trash"!
20 November 2001 | by (Slagelse, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Unbelievably stupid rich bitch (Sofie Gråbøl) and her reckless friend (Ellen Hillingsø) get involved with a mysterious cult and, erm...well, that´s it, really! Sofie looks great in the buff, but her character is so abrasive and obnoxious that you really don´t care whether she´ll escape the mind-controlling secret society or not. Besides, her personal life is already controlled by her dominating wheelchair-bound mother-in-law to be (Ghita Nørby) to a degree that it wouldn´t make a difference, anyway. Deadly slow pace, one-note performances (especially among the cult members) and a predictable, stupid script kill this one. Ulrich Thomsen appears briefly as a suicidal cult member. Director Bier should stick with romantic comedies. *½ (of ****)
