Reconstruction

Genre: Drama; Starring: Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Maria Bonnevie, Kristi Henrickson; Director: Christoffer Boe; Author: Christoffer Boe, Mikkel Nielsen; Release Date Limited: 09/10/2004; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 89; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Palm Pictures

There’s something to be said for a drama of illicit love – the chance meeting, the deceptions, the fateful question of where it will all lead – that is tricky enough to present itself as a private, almost voyeuristic film noir. Set in Copenhagen, a city where even the Marriott and the subway tunnels have a sleekly minimalist Scandinavian design, Reconstruction features a supernatural twist that is merely okay, but the film’s mood of fractured anxiety and longing made me eager to see what the director, Christoffer Boe, does next.
