A film review by Jamie Richardson
When I read the title, I felt a tightening of my chest and knots in my stomach; however, a film that speaks for the unspoken, that puts facts into film and portrays them with such depth, belief and emotion, evokes a rising and a following that any person irrespective of status or background can voice their support by simply viewing.
Writer and director Jacob Thomas Pilgaard have produced a masterful film that has captured the raw emotion of the deportee and the escorting police officers very well. The build-up of the storyline to the penultimate moment puts it in a class of its own and the silver lining is that a system that may be perceived as cruel can change.
Music by Anna Roemer and Rasmus Juncker has given strength and depth to the film.
Cinematography by Kristian Arbs set in a mono silver-tone and noir effect with short bursts of colour complements the overall structure of the film extremely well.
