Definitely worth watching
28 October 2001 | by (Aarhus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the tale of a small Danish village, which is disturbed when a stranger comes to town. The story mostly takes place at the local bar, where the stranger rents a room. As the locals find out more and more about the stranger, the intensity builds. Lars Mikkelsen, who also stars in Ole Christian Madsen's 2001 movie "En Kaerlighedshistorie", has the role of Seth, the stranger who comes to town, and he does a great job. Peter Schroeder is also worth watching. It's probably hard to get to right now, but if you ever get the chance to see it, don't hesitate.
