What a surprise!!
23 February 2007 | by tande28See all my reviews

Saw this movie at a test screening and it was one of those films that keeps you guessing until the end. I really enjoyed the mix of English and Danish as well. It seemed quite natural, since we here in Denmark are used to English in our everyday life.

Nicolai Coaster Waldau, Zlatko Buric and the lead actor James Barclay were all very good. The two girls were not quite as good, but not bad. Overall it was a pleasant surprise to what I was expecting. It was very different than most Danish movies, and we need more of that. And I know that the people behind Himmerland had very little money, and yet this film looked better than most of Denmark's "big budget" movies.

I would be very curious as to why that is. How could a film like this one that cost less than 1 million kroner look so much better than films that cost 20 times as much??? Someone needs to hire the director here! He has some secret the other directors in Denamrk need to learn!! I give this film 8 out of 10 stars. And I recommend it to those people who enjoy watching movies where you can't predict the ending after the first 10 minutes!
