Danish miracles
28 August 2004 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

Danish film industry has a really great vitality right now and it's not just von Trier. Dogma movies has been dealing with religious matters before and this is another try. And a good one.

Ann Eleonora Joergensen plays a priest in a women prison. She meets Kate (Trine Dyrholm) who can perform miracles, which means she can make people fresh from drug overdoses. But Kate has a dark secret. She left her child to die from thirst, when she was going on drugs herself.

There are many conflicts here and the tough one is the priest getting pregnant, but the child might be mongoloid. How about abortion? How can she deal with that, when she deals with mothers at prison, who has murdered their children.

Much to think about and much to feel about also, in this quite good Anette K Olesen movie.
