Trivia

Director Paprika Steen and screenwriter Kim Fupz Aakeson were in huge disagreements about the ending of the film. Steen wanted the husband (played by Michael Birkkjær) to caress his wife's (Sofie Gråbøl) face. Steen insisted that she needed it to make a happier ending. Aakeson stated that a gesture like that would ruin the story. Steen got her wish. See more »

Stunning!
10 December 2004 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

There are so many ways to fail when you tell a story about people who are in a state, people who mourn, people who can't communicate. But writer Kim Fupz Aakeson and first time director Paprika Steen pulls this off like there's nothing to it at all. "Lad de sma born" is a masterpiece, shining with profound psychological insights and exquisite performances. Grabol, Birkkjaer, Pilmark, Endre, Mynster, Brygmann, Christensen are all superb. This is a movie much similar to the great "Elsker dig for evigt"; it stands out with the same sharpness, same credibility, same maturity. I love von Trier, but Denmark has more to offer. Much more. We are grateful.
