It's the last day of school. Christian (19) and his younger sister Sofie are on their way to a party together with their friends. They've got to finish studying for their finals, take the tests themselves, and then school's out for good. The party has come just at the right time, and is just what Christian needs; right up until the point his sister commits suicide in an upstairs bathroom. Exams and graduation completed, Sofie's unexplained suicide is still affecting everyone concerned, especially Christian, who is convinced that Sofie was trying to tell him something before she killed herself at the party. But life has to go on, and before they all have to split up and go their own way Christian and his friends decide to go on their traditional trip to Sweden to celebrate midsummer for one last time. Although the group's usual rituals in connection with the midsummer trip aren't the same without Sofie, everyone does their best to enjoy themselves. And when Christian's long held, yet ...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Danish cinema...
Midsummer(or Midsommer, as it is called in Danish). What an astoundingly unremarkable attempt at a horror flick. Danish films are very rarely any good at all, and our horror films are probably the biggest embarrassments. I decided to check this film out, as a friend of mine had it, and I could borrow it for free. I knew pretty much what the film was about, and was aware that it wasn't particularly good. When I sat down to see it, I immediately had the same gut feeling that I usually have when I (attempt to) watch a Danish film. This film never really got my interest, and certainly didn't keep it at any point. The plot is poor, and the way it evolved was so clichéd and predictable. In fact, the whole film was predictable and dull. The acting is bad. Nothing else to say. It is just plain bad. The characters are poorly written, even more poorly developed and paper-thin. They are stereotypical as well. The script is incredibly poor, and the shocks are cheap. The film seems overly loud, and about half of the scenes involve the characters drinking alcohol. Are we supposed to care if these people live or die? All they do is drink. Their actions didn't seem to make sense half of the time, either. I barely payed attention to the film, but I could make out that much. I'm not entirely sure how it ends, and frankly, I don't care the least bit. One to avoid. I recommend this only to big fans of Danish films(which would have to be Danish people who can't speak English, since everyone else prefer to watch films that involve actual talent in their production). 5/10
