A closer look into the intrigues of the Danish election 2005
21 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

In The Road to Europe (2003) Christoffer Guldbrandsen brought us an honest and entertaining insider's story of how the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen battled with the top of European leadership to an agreement in the EU.

Now Guldbrandsen has gone to the opposition leader, to depict the hopeless election campaign of Mogens Lykketoft, the leader of the Socialdemocrats. Lykketoft had to fight against loosing polls, a media that wasn't interested in his vision - only in his defeat- and a public that was more inclined to support the easily understood catchphrase of the prime minister. As seen before we get the insider story with spin-doctors and all, but what really carries this film is the personal story of Lykketoft. He knows that he is loosing and we see the defeat in every grimace. The feeling of defeat is supported whit superb editing from his 40 year career in Danish politics.

All together this is a great and touching film. One fault might be that if you really wish to enjoy the film a basic knowledge of the history Danish politics. Nonetheless the film is enjoyable whether you are interesting in politics or not.
