Another great thriller from the Danish filmmaker

Deep Water is a crime thriller and one can undoubtedly feel Ole Bornedal's touch on the movie. It's similar to his previous work, Nightwatch, and the slow build-up of the story is well suited the long running time. Ole Bornedal has - besides the big pompous and stunning film shots - a flair for creating tension which is maintained throughout the movie to keep the viewers on their toes.

The movie is interesting of its kind; instead of following the crime investigators, the viewers follow the person who's being hunted. In addition, the movie questions what we today regard as good ethics and morals and especially how far we would go if the foundation of our lives were threatened.

The music is composed by the American composer, Marco Beltrami, and Ole Bornedal has managed to bring together a talented cast of Danish actors. A thriller that's worth watching!
