Nikolaj Lie Kaas,
Romantic drama: the story of Christoffer and Maja's trip to the city of Prague - a beautiful, aging city, but also a city choked by a rigid and dated eastern-block mentality. PRAG is the story of a distant, ever-absent father who, even after passing away, traumatizes all who have known him. And PRAG is the story of a marriage on the verge of collapse, in which Christoffer wants one thing and Maja another. A story of an old love, constantly transformed; at once, rooted, fragile, vulnerable, forgotten and rediscovered. A marriage where secrets, one after the other, come bursting out of the closet.Written by
As Mads Mikkelsen is one of my favourite actors, Prag is one of my favourite cities, and Stine Stengade has also caught my eye in various series, so it was natural to me to watch Prag in spite of sporadic reluctance to follow films on family tensions and issues. But I was sure that Mikkelsen is capable of filling out the scenes in full, that it does not become boring or annoying, plus delightful Prague is always a fine supporting actor... So it all was, and funny moments related to grasps and state of affairs in a post-socialist country together with fast unexpected twists in the plot provided the film with additional value. Local characters were distinct as well, and all well performed, thus the Danish-Czech cooperation turned out to be smooth.
Moreover, I realised that language barrier can be overcome more easily than emotional one... If the ending were less trivial/predictable, I would have given 8 points. Now 7.
