Dogme 95 trailblazer Kristian Levring (The King Is Alive) delivers his subtlest, most unnerving film yet. It’s like a reverse image of Nicholas Ray’s classic Bigger Than Life. Instead of watching a dutiful dad go crazy via medication, we watch a deeply uneasy father become utterly liberated when he takes some experimental anti-depressants. Too bad the experiment is ditched and they try to take his pills away. Ulrich Thomsen (Duplicity, TV’s Alias) is the father even his wife and daughter treat warily in this remarkably taut and creepy look at one man’s desperate desire to be comfortable in his own skin.
