a unique idea for a monster movie
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

this is the feature film debut of Danish director Jonas Alexander Arnby who's also, along with screenwriter Rasmus Birch, credited for the original idea. the storyline actually is fairly unique for its genre, but i don't want to give too much detail lest i spoil the mystery any further than the trailer does

the story unfolds at a meandering pace, not so slowly that viewers are liable to lose interest, but the director takes his time, and it pays off nicely. the Danish seaside location is stunningly beautiful, the architecture of the small town setting distinctive and charming. the score is very fitting, slow and soft string, piano (and synth?) instrumentation, and definitely one of the strong points of the film

other positives include the 'animal' design, make-up and special effects, which are simple but fantastic and contribute to what are probably the best creature transformation scenes i've seen in a movie. i have no complaints about the acting – i don't speak Danish, but the line delivery and body language sound and look natural. the dialogue and characters are well-written, and the leading character is likable and relatable

i love this movie, recommend it highly, and i'll definitely keep an eye open for future projects by Jonas Arnby
