Amazing great movie
3 January 2012 | by imdb-710-940814See all my reviews

The last few years I try to watch more European movies. Usually they are no match and I still think the U.S.A. makes the best movies. (I am from The Netherlands Europe) However, once in a while a little pearl surfaces and this movie struck me full. Incredible touching acting by this little girl who struck me at first site and hold me in, during the complete movie. The story, cinematography, rhythm and great acting by the other characters did the rest. A lot of the story comes over without the need of text. It is all so natural, one really forgets watching a peace from the past. I even sometimes forgot to read the subtitles even though I can't understand a word Danish. I understood without understanding the language. If one likes strong character little big movies without tricks, this is one not to miss. Thank you Morten Køhlert, Bo Tengberg, editors, actors and the rest of the team, for this peace of art.
