Original TitleEn Forelskelse
- Director: Christian Tafdrup
- Writer: Jonatan Spang; Christian Tafdrup
- Producer: Kim Magnusson; Peter Reichhardt
This is so utterly heart-breakingly painful - Tafdrup handles a very difficult subject matter with absolute skill - and, by use of music alone, manages to twist the whole thing.
Seldom will you see such gifted direction - controlled acting and a blinding emotional intensity.
16-year-old Carsten just started dating Melissa. He is introduced to her sweet and likable parents, who kindly welcome their first son in law. On a weekend in their summerhouse it turns out that Carsten and Melissa's dad might have more in common than they first thought.
