den eneste ene or "The One and Only"
22 July 2013 | by bill-729-637551See all my reviews

A long time ago I stumbled across a copy of "The One and Only", which I liked enough to watch again at irregular intervals. I recently had a chance to watch the Danish original, "Den eneste ene" and found it very rewarding to watch. There are some situations which are perhaps better exploited in the later, English remake, but there are also subtleties in the Danish version which give it its own polish. Especially the actor who plays the would-be adoptive father (I'll say no more about him so as not to spoil your enjoyment!) knocks spots off everyone else in either film. "Den eneste ene" is quite long, but I was sorry when it was over. OK, now I'm going to watch "The One and Only" again!
