REVIEW:

Susanne Bier is an amazing director and writer. She didn’t write this script however it was Anders Thomas Jensen, someone you should also keep an eye out for. He has written many screenplays like “The Duchess” and “Wilbur Wants to Kill himself” along with many other successful Danish scripts. Danish cinema is so powerful it has a way of drawing you in. Bier has directed an array of Danish films, like “Open Hearts” and “Brothers”, which has recently been re-made into a US story with Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, and Natalie Portman. Bier also directed her first English speaking film a few years back called “Things We Lost in The Fire” with Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro.

Jacob (Mikkelsen) lives in India where he works for an Orphanage and helps children off the street. The Orphanage is in need of money for it to prosper any further. They receive a generous offer from businessman, Jørgen Lennart Hannson (Lassegård). There is one condition though, Jacob must go to Copenhagen, meet Jørgen and seal the deal in person. Jacob is hesitant about leaving, especially because he must leave his adopted son, Pramod (Mulchandari). Jacob raised Pramod since he was a baby and it will be his eighth birthday the following week. Jacob has no choice, if he wants to save the Orphanage then he must go. He promises Pramod that he will be back in time for his birthday and leaves for Denmark.

Jacob arrives to an all-expense paid luxury suite in the centre of Copenhagen. He is in a different world now. The following day Jacob gets dressed in a suit and goes to meet Jørgen at his office. He is prepared with statistics and video footage of the Orphanage but Jørgen doesn’t really seem to care about the project. He asks Jacob if has any plans for this weekend and invites him to his daughter, Anna’s (Christensen) wedding the following day. Jacob attends the wedding and to his surprise Anna’s mother, Helene (Knudsen), is Jacob’s old flame. This is only the beginning of many revelations to come. Jacob starts to realize that Jørgen brought him back for a reason, a reason that has nothing to do with the Orphanage. Jacob discovers a part of his past that is alive and kicking. He is now faced with the most important decision of his life. This film is emotionally overwhelming, in a positive sense that is - you won’t know what hit you and when you least expect it the storyline thickens even more.

I’m not going to write anymore about the story because I don’t want to ruin it. I hope I’ve said enough about it to intrigue an audience. This is a fantastic drama with a great story and an amazing cast. It is clear that each country has a certain way of expressing themselves, the gestures and mannerisms are all unique. Danish films are very real and raw, the actors know how to communicate without words they know how ooze emotion onto the screen. There are of course amazing actor’s around the world but for those that have yet to watch a Danish or a Scandinavian film for that matter, you are missing out. You must rush to your closest video store and rent one, this one!

Susanne Bier along with this talented cast has much more amazing things to come. Bier is already a huge success in Denmark and now that she has branched out internationally, I’m sure her name will soon be well-known to the rest of the film world. She also adds to the list of amazing female filmmakers to hit the screen, big time. She has a wonderful and unique vision that will keep audiences captivated for a very long time. Mads Mikkelsen has also been in a lot of international films, the one that stands out the most to vast of audiences would be “Casino Royale” where he plays the villain “Le Chiffre”. He is an amazing actor in all languages someone that I hope will keep moving up to the top. It’s been a pleasure to review such Danish films and I look forward to reviewing more. Everyone should be introduced to the world of Danish cinema and I hope it’s something that I have achieved in this piece.
