A masterpiece
22 October 2002 | by (Varde, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I have just returned from the cinema. A marvelous movie. I have yet to convince myself that this is Nils Malmros' best movie (which I probably will soon), but it certainly is the best and most convincing cinematography ever to come off the hands of a Danish photographer (Jan Weincke).

Truth as we know it - that is, for us who have to get it from the newspapers

  • is subtly questioned as are the motives that make men tick. Spiced with


excruciatingly realistic brain surgery scenes, performed by Nils Malmros himself, by the way, this movie is thrilling as well as moving. Do not miss this masterpiece.
