Mads Mikkelsen performed his lines in German. Although he can be understood quite well, it is still obvious that it is not his native language. Thus, his dialogue was dubbed by Ingo Hülsmann. The German DVD and Blu-ray include an additional audio track with Mikkelsen's original voice. See more »
I enjoyed very much this movie as it was a blend between dark and fantasy. The actors fitted the roles and I liked the game between the "old" and "new" characters. What I liked the most was the fact that the movie was not predictable and had a touch of sensibility, which most movies nowadays tend to miss. As an European movie I recommend it without hesitation and the thriller part was blended perfectly with the dark story. As a minor observation I can add that the story could have gone a bit darker without fading away the sensibility of the father- daughter relationship. In this light, I think the movie can be improved, but the written part on which is based I think succeeds as a story. So if you want a quality movie, with an imaginative story and good actors, this is the right movie for you.
