User Reviews

 
Powerful & Disturbing Drama
10 February 2020 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Set in Denmark, this is a powerful drama which contains a number of highly graphic and explicit sex scenes.

Trine Dyrholm is terrific in her portrayal of Anne, an icy and headstrong partner in her own law firm, who crosses the taboo line and seduces her troubled stepson Gustav (Gustav Lindh), eventually leading to the most tragic of consequences.

Overall, a most engrossing drama, directed by May el-Toukhy, but one has to be willing to weather its most disturbing elements.
