Why do they need an American remake of EVERYTHING?
It's ok, but the Danish movie is just SO good. Same screenwriter but it's missing the beautiful subtlety of the close ups at hands and eyes that made the acting so special in the Danish one. It's missing Sigur Rós. Not everything should have a remake.
