Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: Well scripted, well performed, well staged.

    A round movie with a fantastic Mads Mikkelsen. Honestly, I think this movie would have been even better with some more minutes on it to develop the plot even further.

    Fantastic directing.

  • Ryan: Viewers beware: this is not an easy or light watch.

    Mads Mikkelsen absolutely kills it as a somewhat lonely single man, who suddenly finds love and welcomes his son to live with him.

    That’s all I’ll reveal in the review, no spoilers here.

    But again, this isn’t a light film, nor should it be. This tackles the subject matter with the poise it deserves, with stunning performances from Mads as well as the entire supporting cast. The script and cinematography lend themselves perfectly to the task at hand, delivering a well-crafted portrayal of love, friendship, and ruin.
