A well acted, thoughtful piece of story telling. This is a restrained film about a difficult subject; a film which in the European tradition never patronizes its audience. The joy of the experience is that as a viewer you feel as though you're being treated intelligently - as an adult. Watching Hollywood movies often creates the opposite feeling - that the makers think you're a child who has to be spoon-fed. Watching this film was both rewarding and fulfilling.
I must confess I bought it only because I was intrigued to see Sophie Grabol in something other than the Danish TV series The Killing. (which I love). She stars here opposite Mikael Birkkjaer her co-star in The Killing II and they are both terrific.
