I lossens time does not entirely measure up to great Danish crime films/series
The film has a gripping start, possessing great possibilities for the development of a good thriller with twists and flashbacks, but, in its stead, we see an over-sophistication of drama with mental issues, loose ends and weakly or trivially substantiated motives. The source mood is nice, major performances are promising, but overall accomplishment did not meet my expectations. When the credits appeared, I just shrugged my shoulders and thought that The Killing type of suspense and unknowing is much more fascinating. Events in someone's mind should be handled in a more versatile manner, it is rather easy to get stuck into uniformity and attempts to create horror.
So, 8 points for performances, 4 for the script. The film is no flop, but do not expect persistent thrill and/or witty twists.
