See, now this is a movie that makes me proud of being a Dane! This is the third zombie movie that I have seen, but the previous two were low budget movies made by amateurs, whereas "Sorgenfri" (aka "What We Become") is a movie of proper budget and with proper acting talents.
I am glad that Denmark finally made it to the zombie world map with a movie that actually is worthwhile being remembered for. And director Bo Mikkelsen really managed to secure a good position on the map with his handling of "Sorgenfri".
What starts out as a fairly slow-paced movie, actually turned out to be rather interesting and thrilling. So stick with it, even through the slow and semi-dull first third of the movie or so. It is all part of the director's plan to build up the movie. Personally I think it took the movie a bit too long to get up in gear. But once it did, it was worth the wait.
A small rural community becomes plagued by a mysterious disease, which seems to spread like a wildfire. With the military moving in and placing the town under heavy quarantine, the citizens become prisoners in their own homes. And during confinement they can only listen to the newsfeeds to get information about the disease that is ravaging their town. However, things are being kept in the dark, but things can't stay buried forever...
The story in "Sorgenfri" was a good one, once the movie picked up in pace. And it is a story-driven and character-driven movie, although spiced up with occasional action. There isn't really much gore and zombie effects, come to think of it. But director Bo Mikkelsen managed to more than make up for that with clever storytelling and presentation of the story visually.
They had some good actors on the cast list, and I must admit that I was more than surprised to see Troels Lyby in a movie such as this. But he really stepped up and surprised me with his delivery of performance in a zombie movie.
"Sorgenfri" is a movie well-worth watching if you enjoy zombie movies, and don't mind it not being a movie with a standard English audio. "Sorgenfri" was a surprise to me, and I am glad that I happened to find it and got a chance to watch it.
Hopefully there will be a sequel to it, because it does leave the audience with a sense of something more is to come.
