Sofie Grabøl delivers a masterclass in acting in this excellent Danish road movie.

Sisters Inger and Rose have just set off on a highly anticipated coach trip to Paris. But when Inger announces her struggles with schizophrenia to the group, they are faced with pity from some and discrimination from others. On arrival in Paris, it soon becomes clear that Inger has a hidden agenda concerning a figure from her past, ultimately involving the entire group in her hunt for answers.

The trip itself brings out many sides of Inger, making the film at times both a drama and a comedy. At first her manner of speaking and her cautiousness are off-putting to those around her, but she also is full of surprises, even for her sister. Grabøl deftly manages the slow revelation of Inger’s many layers and of her past regrets so that we’re swept along with her, taking her side as she tries to resolve old business. She makes her so perfectly believable. A tremendous, multi-faceted approach to a subject screenwriter and director Niels Arden Oplev’s knows and understands through first-hand experience, and it shows.
