Storyline

14-year-old Lulu moves to a small provincial town with her mother and younger brother. One night, her brother is struck by a beam of white light - actually the spirit of Herman Hartmann from the 19th-century. To her despair, Lulu realizes that Herman has possessed her brother, and the two of them are whirled into a fevered adventure. Joined by Oliver, a rich kid, and Richard, a disillusioned clairvoyant and inventor, they take on the dark, supernatural forces gathering over the town - evil from deep in the land of the dead, determined to take over the world and see them die.

Must-see danish film of the year
27 January 2007 | by PreliatorSee all my reviews

I just saw this tonight at a special sneak premiere with a Q&A session with the director Nikolaj Arcel. I must say that this is the most impressive visual effects film that has ever come out of denmark. Even though its a kids film, it still managed to keep me entertained throughout the whole film, and unlike other typical danish films, it doesn't talk down to you or has unrealistic dialog. Its obvious that the director has been influenced by such films as Star Wars, Harry Potter etc. but it still comes out as original piece with a lot of danish humour.

All in all a very enjoyable film that i look forward to see again.
