A while back a friend and I went to the cinema to watch the film that won this year’s Oscar for best foreign film – In A Better World. It was a wonderful story about rage and revenge, and while watching it, we both wanted to go to Denmark ASAP. Unfortunately we saw the dubbed version, which ruined the experience a little bit – I’m sure it would have been even better in the original.
We are also currently watching a US TV-series called The Killing, which is based on a Danish show, Forbrydelsen – The Killing. That one is also wonderfully slow, beautiful and thought-provoking. Even though the remake is good, I’d really like to watch the original, too.
