I saw this film first thinking "oh no, not another dogme trip" (this may sound strange since dogme is so popular these days, but here in Denmark we are quite a few now who are sick and tired of the concept!), but I was happily surprised when realizing that Gislasson actually and obviously are very inspired by Oliver Stone's masterful style especially from films like 'Natural Born Killers' and 'U-Turn', and to a degree also 'Nixon'.
The film itself is a pretty ok roadmovie, which doesn't quite live up to ones expections but doesn't quite fall through either. The plot is somewhat cliche, but it's quite well followed up..
And then - and this might be because I'm from Denmark - I'm tired of danish actors terrible accent. You can tell from miles away that they're danish and it makes my toes crumble. This might be the reason why danish actors in foreign languaged films always play...yes, danes... An exception here ofcourse is Nikolaj Coster Waldau ('Black Hawk Down', and others..) who actually have managed to drop the accent..
Anyways, all in all a pretty good film, but I'm not sure it will be one of those I will be seing numerous films (like eg. 'Natural Born Killers', like before mentioned)
