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.
