the good, the bad, and the ugly
29 July 2004 | by arnold57See all my reviews

The good -- a surprising debut for director Oliver Ussing. The bad -- the truly awful script: shallow, predictable, unsophisticated, or shall I say -- amateurish The ugly -- most of the cast -- come on Herr Ussing -- you could have done better: unappealing cast dramatically and physically (with minor exceptions: Thomas Levin; Nicholas Bro.

I was pleasantly surprised by the mature directorial style of newcomer Ussing, the rest of the film is truly forgettable.

I won't dwell on the plot or its lack of logic, but why cast actresses as sisters who don't have the slightest resemblance to each other...and why is one sporting a jylland accent whereas the other one has a "Copenhagener" -- where are the parents of the sisters supposed to come from?

And what's the point of the physical infirmity? How does it contribute to the plot?

Just because Danish films are riding high, one cannot do just about anything...

Better luck next time (and don't use the same screenwriter...)
