So sad, so sad, but brilliant!, 15 October 2008

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"De Usynlige" is the very sad story of a 4 years old boy, who disappears and gets killed 8 year before this story begins. We follow the murder, Jan Thomas (Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen) on his way back to the real life, after his years in prison, and the film brings us into his version of what was happened. After a while, we get a new perspective, when the little boy's mother (danish Trine Dyrholm)gives us her story with all the suffering and pain. The film is esthetic and brilliant in many ways: First and last because of the realistic acting of the two main actors: Hagen and Dyrholm; in fact, they didn't act, they really were these people! The pictures, the building of the drama, the sound and the mood Erik Poppe has made, couldn't be better for such a serious theme. It made me in a condition of silence, almost without breathing... This film makes reflecting - but not depressive- thoughts, over the worse aspects of life.
