Huge Directorial Debut
19 April 2009 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This nearly two hour film has everything, it's funky, it's action- packed, it feels like a fresh take on The Godfather from a feminine perspective. If it had more traveling shots, smoother and sharper cinematography, more fiction and less time spent on realism and facts, I'd give it 9/10 stars. It's a bit hard to describe, it goes many places and includes a lot of ideas, a bit like society today. It's the Human Zoo. Probably inspired by Quentin Tarantino, Luc Besson and many others. Get into this movie with a open mind, and you will experience Rie Rasmussen's artistic vision, her enthusiasm, her poetry, her timing, her style.

I am definitely looking forward to Rie Rasmussen's next film projects!
