Emotionally shallow
19 January 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

There's a lot of good stuff coming from Scandinavia these days, both in movies (Jagten, A Royal Affair, King of Devil's Island, Sons of Norway, Dead Snow 2, Trollhunter, Sound of Noise, Turist, We Are the Best!) as in television (The Killing, The Bridge). This is not one of them though. I lossens time (aka. The Hour of the Lynx) is as boring and conventional as Kvinden i buret (aka. The Keeper of Lost Causes). It feels like watching a very average made-for-television movie. The editing is often irritating, the characters have no depth whatsoever and the backstory is plainly predictable. Sofie Gråbøl, who plays the female priest Helen, keeps everything from falling apart. Although her acting resembles Sarah Lund a bit too much, she nonetheless portrays a convincing Lutheran priest. Apart from that, this film has almost nothing to offer. Especially the emotional uppercut where this movie aims at, is virtually inexistent. But maybe I'm a robot.
