Beautiful People
28 September 2010 | by ssesbenSee all my reviews

I am a devoted fan of the danish about-movies program 'Premiere'. Mikkel Munch-Fals, former host of the program, has made his first film: "Smukke Mennesker" With the directly converted English tittle: "Beautiful people".

My family and I went to the cinema to watch this on the premiere. Disappointing to see that we, four people, were half of the audience. What a shame! We enjoyed the picture, it had good acting, was well directed and photographed. Mikkel Munch-Fals has written himself a nice script. Four persons, all in someway strange, encounters each other. This leads to uncomfortable situations, those are at times grotesque. That said, there is also many funny moments through-out. Mikkel creates some breathtaking feelings. It also catches emotions pretty good. I walked out of the cinema with the feeling of having watched something quite extraordinary for a danish movie. If only it had a bigger audience.

I suggest you go see it, if you like twisted drama's. Interesting debut. I certainly hope there is more to come!
