| Not bad
No spoilers. Right off the top I'll say it was pretty decent little film... Didn't care for the clip from the climax that plays during the opening credits. Don't understand why the director felt the need to share that 50 seconds with the audience. Maybe a Danish thing.

Did very much like the camera work and shot selection used by the director, felt right there pretty much, in the scene. Felt personal, worked pretty well throughout. And they spend the first 10 minutes just getting to know the characters a little. Does it well enough to point out their character flaws without having to rub your nose in them. Showed real patience given it's only a 90-minute film, and no CGI so they focused on their characters and the story, which worked. Also thought they over did the lighting. Mostly shot indoors and at night so darker would have worked better.

However as the story progresses and the pace picks up the cast lags. The characters are a bit too subdued/lethargic as their world becomes unhinged with their survival increasingly in doubt. They should have been wired when instead they looked and acted a bit stoned. For people on the edge of the abyss they certainly lacked for nervous conversation. Think really scared people would have talked more.

As often happens in this genre the writer mistakenly believes the characters must make bad/stupid decisions for things to happen. Myself I never like watching stupid people. Prefer when the situation forces the characters to respond rather than vice versa. Have some of each here. Did not care for the climax much or for the ending, expected more, characters deserved a better ending.

All said not a bad little film, pretty good actually. Obviously a small budget but think it worked in their favor, worth a watch
