Compelling thriller never lets you go.
12 March 2006 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

Just viewed the compelling Danish film, DOMMEREN (The Judge) at the Cinequest Festival in San Jose, California (2006.) I would call it a "thriller," as I was immediately swept away and never let go by the riveting acting; scenes superbly shot and edited; and the spot-on film score. There is neither a false note nor boring moment in this whirlwind adventure, which also happens to pull off being a solid character study while driving to its heartfelt climax. Peter Gantzler, though obviously well-known in Denmark, could offer much to American films, should he ever choose to go that route. I remember him fondly in "Italian for Beginners."

Josephine Zeitlin, Actor/LA and San Francisco
