A deeply moving film that has touched audiences wherever it has been shown. A new pastor, Anna, is sent for her first assignment to a women's prison, where she encounters both Kate, whose life story and reputation for disturbing powers affect her profoundly, and Henrik whose position as prison official should guard him against romantic attachments...

Following Dogme principles, director Annette Olesen probes perceptively the themes of religion, friendship, love, desire for (and experience of) maternity, shedding light on the most painful corners of human existence and constructing a heady, devastating climax. Brilliant cinema.


I was impressed by its blazingly emotional story and tremendous performances
