A sassy film full of style and seductiveness
3 January 2005 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Of course, as a screenwriter who has himself co-written Laurits' next film, the feature 'Ambulancen', I'm probably completely biased on my take of his work, but one thing's for sure: Laurits enjoys a tight set-up, uses the constraints for the story's own good, and has a wonderfully cinematic eye, even when portraying everyday situations such as a dinner party in an apartment. Thanks to the plot's surprises, the bubbling charm, and the excellent scene design in 'Between Us' ('Mellem Os'), Laurits and his collaborators have created a tight, sassy film full of style and seductiveness.

It comes highly recommended!
