Expanded widescreen family melodrama
11 March 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Almost four hours of compressed dysfunctional family melodrama based on the Danish author Christian Kampmann's four novels from the 70's.

Hard to swallow, told with no humour. The images are sharp and well-composed but with no personality and hardly thought as anything else but technical show-off.

For those unfamiliar to Danish movies: don't think this is the standard of a "normal" Danish movie.

Bad acting and fatal casting make this hard to watch - even as a historical tour de force of Danish everyday life in the past decades. First and foremost overlong without a cause.
