The movie deals with controversial topics that have such significant relevance in today's society that I cannot stress enough that this is a must-see!
7 January 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I was so lucky to be invited to see a screener of this movie back in December last year. Prior to the showing I'd read half the book (the movie is based upon the novel "The Refugee" by Olav Hergel) and I was tremendously pleased with the plot and very excited and eager to see how they had managed to adapt it into a motion picture. I'm not an overly enthusiastic fan of Danish movies, but Kathrine Windfeld has indeed succeeded in creating a thought provoking and touching film, that unquestionably will take its place in history as one Danish film production's greatest moments. A stunning performance by Iben Hjejle (Rikke Lyngvig) is accompanied by excellent performances by the rest of the cast. You will find yourself at the edge of your chair, captivated by this thrilling story and leaving you enriched and thoughtful when you leave the cinema. The movie deals with controversial topics that have such significant relevance in today's society that I cannot stress enough that this is a must-see!
