Deeply disturbing
20 December 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Deeply disturbing movie about a bunch of sorry characters in the suburbs of Copenhagen.

Main character Per who is a janitor for an apartment building incidentally finds a young naked girl in an empty apartment. She has no language and no normal social skills like eating etc, but he discovers that she is able to work miracles via sexual activity.

The movie from then on is a study of the dark sides of humanity - what can be excused in the name of charity/helpfulness?

Definitely a movie worth watching, thought provoking but also depressing in many ways.
