Trivia

Director Christian Braad Thomsen chose to use mostly untrained actors in order to avoid the unnatural language tone that he felt dominated professional acting. He also asked his leading lady Mette Knudsen to write the script with him so that her lines would seem natural to her, and improvisation was used in many scenes. See more »
