Storyline

THE EXPERIMENT is the story of the nurse Gert, who is appointed as headmistress of a special children's home, owned by the Danish state in Greenland, 1951. The children's home is intended to accommodate 16 carefully selected Greenlandic children, who have just come home after a year of civilization in Denmark. Now they are to be introduced into the Greenlandic community as role models. Gert, who lives alone and has no family, accepts the assignment with pride. She is idealistic and ambitious and feels passionate about saving Greenland from destitution. The means to this end is to educate and civilize the 16 children in the Danish language and culture, so they can spearhead Greenland's transformation from being a poor hunter society to being an equal part of Denmark. Due to her blind faith in the experiment, Gert underestimates the obvious personal costs to the children. And when the children as well as the Danish state fail her, she finds it harder and harder to maintain her idealism. Written by Rikke de Fine Licht & Louise Friedberg

This movie is dumb, implausible and ONE LAUGHING MATTER
2 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has to be most implausible and dumbest movie ever made. Denmark has been one of the most cruel, merciless colonial powers ever. For this very reason, this movie is completely nonsense, and doesn't make any sense.

Let's address the main problem with this movie: ASSIMILATION PROGRAM. What country that goes into another's land to rob, conquer and loot them would do a program like that. "Assimilation" assumes the nation likes the people and wants to lift their standard of living, which Denmark never has done.

It's well known that Denmark oppressed the Inuits for centuries. How come this movie isn't in the history books? Could it be because a situation like that is so impossible and implausible?

Folks, skip this movie. This movie is hilariously bad.
