Customer Reviews

Liked Despite Subtitles

Mostly I enjoyed this danish political drama with a strong female lead. I didn’t enjoy having to read about 80% of subtitles to follow along. This is one where you have to watch intently and can’t multi-task, unless you understand the language, of course.

Brilliant and enjoyable political drama

One of the best ever - I've watched the full series twice now and will watch again for the political drama but also the family stories. Great performances, great writing and insight.

Very Good!

Yes, despite the subtitles, this was very good for the Danish. I was hooked. I liked the subtitles, it reminded me of learning another language in the European area of Germany. Different language, but the characters were well developed.
