As the makers say - A Danish Blade Runner
17 February 1999 | by (Randers, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is somehow a different Danish movie. At this time the Dogme-agreement is mentioned all the time, but this movie has managed to become outstanding without being a Dogme-movie.

Skyggen (or The Shadow) is not only characterized by great actors, but it's also a fine presentation of "computer-films". I like the way "Techno-staden" is build, and the way Lars Bom portrays JB is fantastic. He is a very fine actor!

If you haven't already seen this movie - go see it. It's definitely worth spending time on.
