A slowly paced, heartfelt character drama.
5 June 2001 | by awalter1See all my reviews

The aging Fru Nielsen is mother to a 20 year old semi-autistic son, Brian, who lives with her in their home behind a convenience store, which is run by Fru. One night Brian is late coming home from a walk, and in the morning Fru learns that a young woman was killed in the nearby park. She begins to worry that her son may have committed the murder, and she works to keep police suspicion at bay. However, a certain Detective Jesperson keeps returning to their home to question the boy. Jesperson is an older man and not unkind, but he knows the value of both persistence and patience in his work.

"A Place Nearby" is a simple character drama, simply told and well acted. Ghita Norby ("Hamsun," "The Kingdom") gives a tremendous performance as the weary, broken Fru Nielsen. Director Kaspar Rostrup for the most part lets the film rest upon the shoulders of his capable actors and the textured sets around them. Like the character Jesperson, Rostrup is confident and composed, trusting that every hidden truth will make its own path to the light.

If Krzysztof Kieslowski had ever decided to retell "Of Mice and Men" in a modern, urban setting, it might have looked very much like this film.
