Mediocre morality tale from Denmark
1 May 2006 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

A teacher's activist mistress runs over and kills a police officer. The teacher leaves his wife to stand by his girlfriend. The focus in this one seemed off to me. The atmosphere is of a thriller or a noir, when instead the issues would have been brought out better without these elements (e.g., the lighting and the musical score). I also felt the plot was poorly developed. The girlfriend and the two men who were with her during the fateful night get off nearly scot-free because none of them confesses – and therefore they can't prove which one of them was the driver. Either the Danish legal system is the worst in the world or their detectives really suck, or, probably the true option, the screenwriters don't have a clue how these things actually work. (n.b. – according to one IMDb reviewer, the first option is the correct one!).
