It was good. Now I'll just have to watch Himmelskibet (A Trip to Mars).
Basically the story is very simple. Some scientists notice a comet that is going to hit the earth and they release this information and it causes a panic. The main focus of the film is not the event of "the end of the world" itself but how the people cope with that. It is very much a drama with scientific speculative fiction on the background.
Overall the film was nicely paced, not too long although it stayed in some places a bit too long for no good reason and acting was solid. The story was also quite interesting although slightly predictable and I enjoyed it. It also has a pretty uplifting ending.
