Audience Member A simple yet quite engrossing tale from Denmark. Some aspects of the plot do not seem to be fully developed and it's a far from original story but it is delivered in a solid manner. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member I haven't seen a bad Danish film yet. Moving and with understated performances, it matches the class realism of Ken Loach. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Brilliant moving and masterfull film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Another great Danish movie.
