Nikolaj Coster-Waldau acts in his first feature and he never looked back. He gets some great support from Sofie Gråbøl and the excellent Kim Bodnia in what is one of the tenser Danish movies I have seen. Was the ending also inspiration for "Saw" later and other thrillers? A memorable thriller.
Un premier film qui propose toutes les ficelles du genre : en effet, aucune variante du thriller n'est épargnée. On peut trouver cela très drôle et jouissif ou insupportable selon l'humour. Pour notre part, on a plutôt apprécié la recette et les ingrédients... www.cinefiches.com
Whilst undeniably a fine film i actually liked the remake better, mainly due to some unneccessary scenes in the original such as the racist scene in the bar, something i supposse you come to expect from the 'open and free' Danish society. Having said that a very good watchable movie.
Having to watch its remake before the original in highschool and thought it was an awesome film, specially I was very into Mcgreggor those days (til now, but specially those days), I found this original version is the best, although much less prettier girls casted. As usual, no need for a remake!
