Incredibly acting
17 April 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

After seeing the film, and now think back to what made the biggest impression, I can say that it is the stunning performance of the characters in the film. An incredibly authentic presentation, both in duologue and body language, and with a great empathy for each role. It is nice to see, that Denmark is still able to bring good acting to the world. The plot shows how naive and trusting in the cause and right the right thing to do, that would be necessary to start an upraising in the first place. The film stands out, by not containing the violence and brutality, that is most common among films describing this particular period. - Thank you for this experience.
