Storyline

Christina is living in a suburb to Copenhagen. With her class mates Cecilie, Trine and Pernille, a tight-knit gang of girlfriends, she slacks her schoolwork, living mostly for the weekends of gate crashing, getting drunk, experimenting with drugs and scoring guys. But her world is turned upside down when Cecilie's boyfriend Shaid starts hitting on her, and Cecilie mistakenly believes the two of them are making out. Cecilie takes offense at Christina and the other girls turn furious. Suddenly Christina is on the receiving end of the girls' wrath, being bullied. Quickly things are getting out of hand and suddenly everything is too late! Written by Zentropa Entertainments

"Humane, sociological and authentic..."
13 August 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Danish screenwriter, producer and director Christian E. Christiansen's feature film debut which he co-wrote with Danish screenwriter Morten Dragsted after an idea by him and screenwriter Jesper N. Christiansen, premiered in Denmark, was shot on location in Denmark and is a Danish production which was produced by Danish producer Louise Vesth. It tells the story about a 16-year-old student named Christina who lives in an apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark with her single father and who usually hangs out with her three best friends named Trine, Cecilie and Pernille and goes to the coolest parties. Due to Christina's circle of friends she is considered as one of the most popular girls at her school, but then one day at school, Christina is approached by Cecilie's boyfriend who makes a pass at her out in the schoolyard. To Christina's unawareness, Cecilie witnessed the incident and drew her own conclusions of what she saw. Christina knows that she has not betrayed her friend, but when she sees her friends again she realizes that she has been excluded from their group and is not given a chance to explain what really happened.

Distinctly and engagingly directed by Nordic filmmaker Christian E. Christiansen, this finely paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the protagonist's point of view, draws an incisive and gripping portrayal of a Danish girl whom after being pinpointed as a traitor by her friends becomes the target of excessive bullying. While notable for it's naturalistic and atmospheric milieu depictions, fine cinematography by cinematographer Ian Hansen and use of sound, this character-driven and narrative-driven story about the fatal consequences of a misunderstanding where a student whom as become a victim of circumstances befriends a girl in her class named Anja who regards herself as an outsider and begins to change her perception of herself and her former friends, depicts two merging studies of character and contains a great and timely score by composer Mikkel Maltha.

This psychological, at times humorous, somewhat romantic and heartrending coming-of-age drama from the late 2000s which is set in the capital city of Denmark in the early 21st century and where the jealousy a leader of group of girls is struck with, after observing something she immediately perceives as foul play, turns into vengeance and drives her to implicate her friends in her personal vendetta against the girl who used to be one of her closest friends, is impelled and reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, efficient continuity, distinct depiction of friendship, unrelenting dialog and the memorable and heartfelt acting performances by Danish actresses Laura Christensen and Stephanie Leon and the fine acting performances by Danish actress Mette Ribber Christoffersen and Danish actor Cyron Bjørn Melville. A humane, sociological and authentic directorial debut.
