Not what might be expected.
1 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw the DVD of this film in Danish with English subtitles. Firstly, it is far from being an Andersen fairy tale, in fact it is quite disturbing and not what you may expect. Secondly, it is very contemporary and deliberately heavy handed in its moralistic points of view. The casting and acting are uniformly excellent as all the main characters display enthusiasm, confusion, disillusionment, distrust and, unfortunately, the willingness to sacrifice to achieve very questionable goals. The film is not exploitative, in fact, I assume it was produced as much for its educational purposes as for its dramatic contribution. For any pop star wannabes please catch this film if it shown outside Denmark. There is also a very telling family development in this film which I particularly appreciated. The songs are part of the general character development and seemed fitting.
