Huge Disappointment
30 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I loved Elling. It was a beautiful movie. Amazing, funny and touching. So I was really looking further to this movie. However this was a huge disappointment.

Mors Elling has different director from its predecessor and seems like a completely different movie altogether. It is a prequel to Elling and shows the events till the death of his mother, from where Elling starts. It is much more darker than the previous film and more realistic too. But in doing this it loses all the charm of Elling.

For fans of Elling I would recommend skipping this movie altogether and watching Elsk meg i morgen instead. It is third film of the trilogy and follows the events of Elling. Though even that is not good as Elling, it is still watchable and much better than this movie.
