| Powerful Drama
I've wanted to see this film for quite some time. I liked all the other Bodil Ipsen/Lau Lauritzen-collaborations. This one was the last film, they directed together, but it's still unavailable on VHS/DVD. Lucky me, it was "on cable" the other night, in Denmark. Anyway Lau Lauritzen plays an ordinary architect, with a wife and a son. He gets accused for killing a 10-year old girl, and of course nobody doubts he's the one. Even his wife and his uncle has trouble believing him, but at least they don't tell him. I've never seen such powerful performance from Lau Lauritzen, who changes attitude, almost from scene to scene. Lisbeth Movin also makes a brilliant performance.
