I'm a little miffed, this is getting shown tonight and Sunday at this year's DC Filmfest and well... due to limited time and money, it looks like I've got to wait for the DVD (which has been released - with English subs). Anyone seen the Danish DVD and/or the film itself, thoughts?

I saw it last month at a film festival. It's like a Danish "All the President's Men" - good suspenser, but a little too long I thought.

I picked up the DVD last month. It is very well-made and English friendly all-around. The film is one of the better Danish productions (not the best...Reconstruction is the winner here) to come out lately. Very much dialog-driven and as mentioned already in the tradition of All the President's Men. It reminded me a bit about the Contender...yet a much more serious film. That being said...I did have one problem with it...I have been seeing/ordering quite a few Scandinavian films lately and it seems to me that there is a very limited circle of high-priority actors, esp. in Denmark that get involved with pretty much any serious prodcution. With other words...way too many familiar faces

Regards,
Pro-B

I couldnīt agree with you more, pro-bassoonist.

I have grown tired of Danish films because itīs the same faces we see time and time again.

Academy Award winner Anders Thomas Jensenīs new flick "Adams æbler" (Adamīs Ables) - despite it has received rave reviewes - use the same circle of actors... yet again.



I really do request that Danish directorīs has the gut to try some lessor known/used actors. I guess the reason why we see the same bankable actors again and again is to sell as many tickets as possible.

Imagine if we saw Tom Cruise in every other movie in the States. How borring.

Yeah, its being shown at the Filmfest DC this year (which always has a great line-up of films that normally aren't shown at other fests), but due to how busy I was this past weekend, I was unable to attend (and I was forced to missed Automne, which just looked stunning).

I suppose I'll be importing.
