This movie wasn't bad. I think it was a great idea to make this movie, and I even think it turned out to be okay. I think it's good that this movie shows how life is in some areas of Denmark. That way people will realize that something is wrong and that there has to be done something about it. I didn't know such neighborhoods existed in Denmark even though it's an extremely small country with no more than 6 million people.
Now, why do I rate this movie the way I do? Mainly it's because of a lack of plot. The plot basically relies on following a group of immigrants in Denmark in a period of time. That's all, and I even though I don't like it, I don't think it should have been made differently. This movie is more like a documentary than a "normal" movie (by "normal", I mean having a story and a plot). But at the same time, it is far from a documentary. It's just the "no plot" thing that reminds me of a documentary. Another reason why I rate this movie badly (although not playing much of a role in my final rating) is that it's not the kind of movie I would normally want to see (I didn't want to see this one either, but I had to).
I think it's amazing that this movie was made for only 1500000 kr. (Danish currency - DKK). That's about 316000 American Dollar or 201000 Euro. I don't think it would've been any better if more money had been involved.
I think this movie belongs in television as an "action documentary", not in the cinema as a movie.
If you think you like this kind of movie, go watch it! It's not that bad. I know a couple of persons who actually enjoyed this movie.
