Taut and seamless, but rather fabulous than realistic
24 February 2015 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Scandinavian countries, Sweden and Denmark in particular, are famous for their thrilling and profound crime films, many of them have obtained further fame through US or British remakes. Det som ingen ved is more than okay example of the said genre, but, knowing their living standard and level of general security and corruption, it is hardly to believe such harsh events and solutions can be implemented in those countries.

Leaving this aside, though, we can watch a decent thriller, with some predictabilities, but not annoying ones. As for performances, they are good at least (Anders W. Berthelsen as Thomas Deleuran, Ghita Nørby as Ingrid Deleuran, Lars Mikkelsen as Marc Deleuran, for example); yet I have to admit, that Berthelsen is not at the level of e.g. Mads Mikkelsen or Nicolai Lie Kaas to me, able to fill out long scenes alone. As for his character, it was not too plausible that a man engaged at children shows would become a witty spy within a short space of time. Anyway, all in all, the film in question is a creation providing taut moments within less than 1.5 hours.
