Not quite forgettable.
20 March 2015 | by hctankredSee all my reviews

I had very mixed feelings about this movie. The acting was at times sub-par (maybe on par for a Danish production) and the production was nothing special at all. The camera work was rather shoddy and left me wondering whether or not I could have done better myself. Yet the script wasn't bad, and the movie leaves me with an aftertaste that this may be more than what it seems at first glance. I definitely think that this movie will grow on me the next couple of years, and what I perceive today as imperfections may turn out to be hidden gems. Overall it's definitely worth a watch, and it's nice to see Zentropa bringing something like this to life, instead of being caught up in a safe recipe for success.
