A strong and powerful story about being a man
16 October 2005 | by Allan-All-InSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this movie with the director so I will explain it in his words: The movie is about a Judge who handles illegal and legal immigrants in Denmark, in a specific case he denies access to a supposedly terrorist. The terrorist attempts to commit suicide and the press blames the Judge. On top of all that his son who he hasn't seen for 15 years tries to contacts him, and the movie gives a strong and powerful perspective of a man who thought he had everything under control and realizes that in order to sort out his job and his personal life he has to force himself to open up to his family, the court and the public.
