A Great film, no pfaffing.
24 March 2015 | by jllewellSee all my reviews

I loved this film. No padding of any description, and only the salient points throughout.

I have to say, I love films that just get on with it, without hours of Hollywood filler; people talking endlessly about things of no importance, that have nothing to do with the story, just to fill the time.

There is none of the usual people giving each other long languishing looks, or making love forever, just because the story is so thin.

This film is the complete opposite of that. It's a little 'slow' if you like constant action, as I do, however it's all to purpose and that makes it very satisfying.

Mads is brilliant as always, and so is the rest of the cast. I'm going to track down the book now, it really deserves a read. The author took big liberties with a real story, but all's fair in love and literature. Especially philosophical literature!

This director has brought it to the screen beautifully, although I will say it's not a film for those who are incapable of reading between the lines.
