Most pretentious movie of the year? You know something's way off when Nicolas Bro acts like he's in a high school horror play - equipped with equally bad lines. Boe hasn't made a truly great film since 'Reconstruction', but this is disturbingly bad.

To my own surprise I actually found this very entertaining. It's laughably pretentious and Nic Bro is way over the top but that's all fun stuff. I enjoyed watching him clowning around as a megalomanic beast (clever, huh?), especially opposite the cool, down-to-earth Lie Kaas which really makes Bro look like a fool. And then there's all the gory Zulawskiesque expressionism which is also fun in a 'this is way too sick and needless'-kind of way. All in all a nice little comedy.

As much as I appreciate Boe seeing Bro as his Muse, he is usually the part I enjoy the least about his films. He is fortunately not as load-bearing here as in Offscreen, and the movie is actually a surprisingly even and horryfying experience, and as always extremely beautiful, but this beast needed more flesh on its bones.

If this films pictures hadn't been so damned beautiful, it would've fallen completely through. Notice that Boe accomplishes to give his slow motion shots of a snowy Copenhagen a 3D-feel that is much superior to real 3D. The rest, though, is sorry. Nicolas Bro is really bad, the film is disgusting and the story uninteresting and badly written. A pure struggle.

Good soundtrack, some cool visuals, and Bro really chews the scenery...but is it a comedy or a horror? The first 45 minutes build up to these horrific actions but they;re punctuated by other's reactions. So it's a wry comedy that takes a while for the shoe to drop? Or is all the body horror that starts happening then supposed to be a transition from horror to comedy? Do I even care? Probably not. It's nice and short though, skips along despite the rest of the film being a symbolic slog.
