| First Danish movie with a real shot at the Oscars
I Am Dina is a powerful epic, which likes Scandinavia has never produced before. The tragic story of Dina, who accidently kills her mother, touches and effects you so much, that you can't get it out of your mind when you leave the cinema.

The film is brilliantly directed by Dane, Ole Bornedal. He has previously directed the world famous thriller Nightwatch, starring Nick Nolte. He can create warmth in one scene, and horrifying pictures in the next. It's powerful, and it works.

Some one who also is worth mentioning, is the lead actress, Maria Bonnevie. She is brilliant, and powerful. You really feel with this poor girl, who has been treated so badly by life. She deserves all the Oscars in the world for her great performance.

Also the score, the art direction and the cinematography is great. I truly hope and wish that I Am Dina will be nominated for a handful of Oscars in march 2003. Only time will tell.

So do it. Go watch it. It's worth it!
