Adam finds that his girlfriend is sleeping with his brother and sets out to save his relationship with a rather unusual plan!
22 December 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I saw the Danish film "Mellem Os" (Between Us) at Uppsala Short Film Festival and I think it deals with the subject of infidelity in a very different and unexpected way. Maybe it's too big a theme for such a short film (35 min), but I think because it tells the story with a lot of humor it actually works very well. Also up and coming Danish actress Helle Fagralid does an excellent job in this film - she is truly talented! I may have preferred another actor in the role of Adam but otherwise I think the production is very supportive of the story. Heard it was shortlisted for a real Oscar and then some rule prohibited it from participating due to it having been shown on TV??? Too bad! It stood a good chance!
