Superb film from Germany
19 April 2009 | by post-458See all my reviews

"Die blaue Grenze" is a really amazing film with very specific mood that I haven't seen or felt before. Sometimes it is a single shot, sometimes it is how the different images communicate. In a way one can't believe that this film is German because it evokes a rare emotion that seems to be from another beautifiul planet. The actors are fantastic and believable. A nice bonus is that one really gets a feeling for the borderland between Denmark and Germany. The sea is like a just sometimes visible character that is always present.

It anyhow seems there is a lot going on behind the images. Something mysterious, something magic, something unseen and unheard. So it fits that a hearing aid is placed in the centre of the film. I am very thankful for that film. In a way it changed my feelings. I lost my fear of death.
