"The ever-reliable Cath Clarke sums up this movie well. It’s well cast, well-acted, superbly shot, but something’s missing. Or perhaps I mean there’s too much of something. I appreciate that being a true story, it’s unique in its own right, but it’s the sort of drama that’s been done before. It seemed way longer than it needed to be. Had 20 minutes fallen to the cutting room floor I would have been happy. Given that CC had said it was from Lars von Trier’s film company, I was hoping for something that left a greater impression. It’s worth seeing, given there’s little else on at the moment, but not one I’ll be buying on DVD. Just about 3 stars."
