Great movie
4 May 2017 | by cfvgbhnjmkSee all my reviews

Great movie! When AFR was reviewed in the danish newspapers, the journalists found that the main theme of the movie was to provoke, and give an indirect critique of the former danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Maybe so... But this movie is much more. I personally find the story, of a young man desperately in love being gradually radicalized, to be the most interesting part of the movie. Great acting by all the "side"-characters makes this journey inside a desperate man's mind, very realistic and trustworthy.

This movie is better if you are Danish.
