Haunted by the past
16 October 2007 | by corrosion-2See all my reviews

Another Danish movie with the Dogma sparse style of film making, Echo is a quietly haunting movie. At the beginning we find out that Simon, a policeman, has "kidnapped" his son Louis & brought him to a quiet coastal location. Without knowing anything more about these two characters & why Simon has taken this action, it's hard to get emotionally involved in the movie. It's only later on when we get to know about Simon's past that the movie starts to click and we feel the suspense. Echo is an interesting movie, well made and finely acted. However, one gets the feeling that it could have been much more, perhaps with providing a little more information to the viewers at the beginning. The version that I saw was only sparingly subtitled thus making it more difficult to follow for non Danish speaking viewers. It is, nevertheless a film worth catching, particularly for the appearance of Peter Stormare in a brief but memorable part.
