A brilliant new film from Bornedal! Love it.
12 September 2007 | by ChristianGP78See all my reviews

This movie is in my opinion a great leap forward for Danish Film.

The many different levels it works on simultaneously - seem to encapsulate the feeling of someone being in way too deep and over his head while not being able to untangle himself from something dangerous, exciting and alluring.

The film proficiently portrays how making one split-second decision can take you in to increasingly deeper and more serious waters - pushing you to make choices about your life you never knew you dared.

The acting is superb, especially the head first passionate plunge of the relationship between Rebecka Hemse and Anders W. Berthelsen juxtaposed with the secure home-life that Mette (Charlotte Fich) provides, represents and desperately fights to uphold.

The editing and pace of the film grips, moves and pushes you into all sorts of different reactions and places, while the gorgeous visual palette of the cinematography is second to none in my opinion. Dan Laustsen must be a member of the absolute elite working in Europe today.

I throughly enjoyed this film, and would not hesitate in recommending it to any moviegoers out there who enjoy being challenged, moved and thought-provoked when taking in a film.

Go see it!! C
