Impressive. Political. Modern.
4 February 2007 | by tpleskSee all my reviews

Very impressive film. It's a sharp and thoughtful movie with provocative and make-you-think story. It appeals both to emotional and rational parts of your personality. I don't know if it's a real story or not, but it makes you believe. What is shown there is so damn true for the modern society! To describe it briefly it looks like a documentary that is built on the interviews with different people. One line of the plot is the story of Danish prime-minister's murder. The second line starts with a cruel murder of a young guy Emil. We hear people talking about prime-minister, then about Emil, discovering their personalities, gradually understanding where they came from and how they've become who they were. Both are much into politics, so it's a film not only about personalities, not only about love, death, self-expression and searching for one's place in the world. It is also about social problems, politics, globalization, extremism. It is definitely worth to see. I think a good movie is a movie that makes you feel a bit different after it's finished. This one does.
