Trivia

Mads Mikkelsen performed his lines in German. Although he can be understood quite well, it is still obvious that it is not his native language. Thus, his dialogue was dubbed by Ingo Hülsmann. The German DVD and Blu-ray include an additional audio track with Mikkelsen's original voice. See more »

One of the best European productions
15 January 2011 | by MdlndeHondSee all my reviews

One of the best European productions i have seen this year and absolutely Deutsche Grundlichkeit! Mads Mikkelsen would make Oscar material out of an airline safety video and he again is blowing is away.

When distraught artist Mikkelsen finds a door to a parallel world it looks to go his way. The story line makes sense from beginning till end in this top smart suspense script with superb performance by Danish sexiest man of the year Mikkelsen and Schwartz as his wife. This story burns slow, but fastidious, and it twists and twists and twists.

A perfect world is only one layer away from disaster is one that applies here and as said by André Maurois: a man cannot free himself from the past more easily than he can from his own body. The mundane average surroundings make you realize only half way that you are watching a master piece.
