Modern and never seen before film art.
3 December 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Honest, moving and pointing at all of us. We have all had the dream of being able to fly without falling down. I was hit in the head by a helicopter.

Hitchcock meets Bergman in an intelligent thriller about an ordinary family man who gets caught up in his dreams and fantasies. A devastating drama.

Bornedal never makes the same film twice. I keep following his work; he is a creative lighthouse in the usually dark and small Scandinavian film arena.

Thankyou.
