A very bad weird movie
15 April 2009 | by chrisserkbhSee all my reviews

The only good thing about this movie was the acting from Jens Andersen which was excellent. Else this movie was just total nonsense. Exaggerated in every sense and during the entire movie I was thinking what the hell is this. It tries to describe the life of people in the suburb and trying to make it interesting, pointless exaggerated violence is created.

For this movie Ole Bornedal really failed.

the acting from Aqua Lene was also okay.

Lasse Rimmer is bad casted for this movie. He is to nice guy material and gives his part a science fiction feeling
