anyone who doesn't love this film lacks heart
28 May 2017 | by mike-27995See all my reviews

I read with incredulity some of the comments about this film. I loved it in every way. I found it funny, touching and incredibly moving. The leading lady is simply stunning and the emotional journey she takes you on is wonderful as is the the ambiguous ending. A total and utter joy and Danish cinema at its best.
