A beautiful poem
14 January 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Not as good as Vinterberg's last movie "Festen", but still worth catching.

Slow-moving story, but it gets under your skin. Joaquin Phoenix and Claire Danes are perfectly cast.

Be warned though, this movie is not for everyone. Some will call it weird and it can be hard to understand what is going on.

I found myself enjoying it :o)

**** out of *****
