It could destroy you, too... if you aren't careful
31 July 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to watch this the night it premiered where I live, since there were so few others in the theater. Hopefully word of mouth will spread. This is a masterpiece. So tight and filled to the brink with material, with an immense amount of it being hinted at, yet without it being heavy. The pace is spot-on, this is often intense, but never overwhelmingly so. It is difficult to put into words how incredibly well this handles all the delicate balances required. Nothing is too much or less than it needs to be. The plot is magnificent, and develops masterfully throughout. You may very well be able to predict occurrences in this, and you will find, just as I did, that their impact is unbelievably strong and real, the sign of a remarkably talented story-teller. The direction and writing is excellent, so effective, engaging, powerful. Cinematography and editing are amazing. It's rare to see such a firm grasp on what can be done with this medium, what can be achieved with a camera. The build-up and establishing of the mood is always beyond reproach. Acting and casting are perfect, every performance and every role, no emotion is under- or overplayed. Melville and Ditlevsen, the best of luck to you, may you and your careers go as far as you clearly deserve to. The sound is impeccable, and the music, a rather important part of this, consists of well-composed score and good choices of music already out. This is almost completely credible, the events, the people, the behavior, and at most you can contest minor details that don't detract from this as a whole. There is some humor, and it doesn't try too hard, nor is it dwelled on. This captures so many little moments, and truly gets into the humanity of it. While this can be viewed by a mainstream audience, in that they will be able to follow it(no offense intended, I'm saying that this is not Lynch), I'm not sure it's for everyone, or that anyone that *can* see it, will enjoy it. It's not a pleasant little escapist piece. Very little of this can be referred to as "fun". It's a deeply serious, and fairly dark, film. There is nudity, perhaps even a little more than what all non-Scandinavians are comfortable with. This has unglamourized violence, disturbing content and infrequent, moderate language as well. None of it is gratuitous. Thank you, Giese. Please keep them coming. These are indispensable, and not only to Danish cinema. I recommend this to anyone who feels they can handle it, and those who have at least somewhat of an interest in psychology in particular. 10/10
