Throw yet another on the pile of danish melodramas
11 January 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"Lille Soldat" is the story of a (female)soldier, Lilly, who is back from war. Having hit rock bottom she gets a job, working for her father(Dad), as the personal driver of his girlfriend prostitute Lily.

The movie takes up a couple of relevant subjects, the problems of readjusting to everyday life after returning from war and human-trafficking and forced prostitution. serious business. But throughout the film it feels like none of this is getting taken seriously.

The characters are bland and lack depth, we never really get to know anything about them or their past. and the few things we are fed along the way seem cliché and pasted on. the opposite gender "relationship" Lilly has with her neighbor is completely irrelevant to the story and in the long run it gets kind of annoying looking at Rasmus Botoft's stupid grin witch apparently is the only expression he is capable of. the "Dad" character is soft and too comical to be in charge of anything and has no credibility as the "brutal boss" of a prostitution ring. There are no reasons or ends for the actions of the two female leads, whenever they start to open up in the slightest mannor we get left with either some heavy breathing or a melancholic tune and that does not make up for the lack of a proper script.

Plastering relevant issues on a film does not make it important and it does not necessarily make it good."Lille Soldat" and its complete lack of credibility is at best yet another embarrassing testimony that Danish film has been at an impasse of melodramas for years.
