Great psychological drama
15 September 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Great danish psychological drama, with good direction, acting, cinematography. A young sociopath, Knud, is imprisoned in a high- security hospital after a brutal murder. Is there a reason for that unintelligible crime? A psychiatrist, Lisbeth, develops experiments while she takes care of those potentially dangerous patients. She is not able to deal with that boy and asks for the help of a Lutheran priestess, Helen. Their jobs and interests may be incompatible. The story of the sociopath is not the only one to be discovered. And there is also a yellow cat. "I lossens time" or "The hour of the lynx" is a careful film about how three minds interfere with each other in a quite complex game. If it were a Hollywood film, I am sure it would have a very numerous audience in all the world.
