Storyline

The boy Kim moves with his family from the countryside to a ghetto in a big city. He does not do too well in school, and that makes him an easy victim for the hard core bullies in the new school. When the group leader is moved to a private school, Kim is accepted in the gang - as long as he provides cigarettes for the other members. This of course leads to a confrontation with the school teachers, his family and eventually the gang members. Written by Morten Juul

Simply the best
19 April 2002 | by esbenpostSee all my reviews

Skummelkrat must be mad. This is the best movie ever. A danish "gone with the wind" with spectacular action scenes and a story that just blows you away. We all carry a little Kim Skov inside us - a shy, misunderstood country boy who just wants to find love and approval. Seeing "Historien om Kim Skov" makes you wiser in so many ways - and stronger, too. I watched it back in elementary school. When the movie started, I was a boy. When it ended, I was a man. It is one of those rare film that has the power to transform you and make you aware of who you really are. If I should point at one weak thing about the film, though, it must be everything that happens in it. And yes, the actors too. Otherwise it is just brilliant. A clean 10 out of 10.
