Let's begin with the best moment in this odd but very entertaining Danish thriller. A beautiful middle-aged woman is in a cop car with an officer who is behind the wheel. She is mentally unstable and has an abusive husband; He has just been banished to the small town after having a "mental breakdown" in Copenhagen. They are driving down a long and narrow road. On either side of the road—land, land, and more land. The sky is all gray. The clouds are low. They are driving to a place that is safe from her abusive husband. Suddenly, she makes him stop the car. She jumps out. She walks to the middle of the narrow road and says: "This is all there is. There is nothing else. Just mud and cows." The whole movie is built around that line, that nothingness, the mud, the clouds, the cows—though I do not recall seeing one cow in the entire movie. What more do you want out of a thriller than this: a small creepy town, a fallen cop, a mad but beautiful woman, a violent husband, a corrupt doctor, mysterious children, and an alien geography?
