| truly unique acting
Bille August is one of the world's best directors. He can get the most enchanting moments from his actors. And his "Jerusalem" is a very good example of it. Long uncut takes with only little dialog show intense and breathtaking acting skills from every actor/actress - especially Maria Bonnevie.

Examples of this are: The scene where Maria's character Gertrud is walking alone in the forest and has a vision of Jesus for the first time; and one of the last scenes in Jerusalem where she sits with her friend who tells her; "You have to forgive... otherwise you will never be able to love again." ...

If you want to see truly unique acting skills this is where you want to go.

Sadly it has not yet been released on DVD. I only have it on old VHS. Let us have a full special edition DVD soon please.
