Thomas Vinterberg – DRUK
- A film that does not want to offer a moral take and that thrives on an energy returned to perfection by the camera.
- The description of the effects and the positive and negative sides do not hide a certain form of social disintegration.
- There are no particular empty passages, although the emotional peaks are sometimes a little “drowned” by the general energy and they do not spike.
Do we recommend it?
Clearly, this is an interesting picture and we think worth watching.
Thomas Vinterberg is a very reliable director and always offers an interesting perspective on the themes he chooses. He is rarely a director who takes a moral or judgmental attitude, but rather, in his best works (including the fantastic Jagten – The Hunt) he very often manages to bring out ethical dilemmas (often due to the ambiguity he loves to stage) which the spectator has to face by assuming an uncomfortable but never passive position himself. This film, although smaller in conceptual breadth than his other previous works, remains very enjoyable both in its euphoric and dramatic moments.
