Interesting Horse Movie
14 May 2014 | by SilkeJSee all my reviews

I'd never heard of Tarok, or the movie about him, but tripped over it in the original Danish version (with English subtitles.) It's a good movie and gives an interesting insight into the trot (harness) racing scene, which I was not familiar with. I thought the acting was a little wooden at times, but that could be because I am neither Danish, nor could understand the language aside from a few words here and there which I picked up during the film. It's the story of Tarok, a Danish Trotter who raced back in the mid seventies. You don't get in depth horsey stuff, it's mostly about the family who owned him, but one thing I took away was that Tarok was quite a character -- as most high end racers were/are. There are some very nail biting races in there, and I really enjoyed watching the absolute power of those horses. Watching them race, in slow motion at times...it is something to behold. I think Harness Racing gained a new fan. If you like horses, you'll enjoy this movie. If you enjoy drama inside close knit families, you'll also enjoy this movie.
