THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES ( MA 15+)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES -

AN en­gross­ing Dan­ish crime pro­ce­dural based on the in­ter­na­tional best- seller by Jussi Adler- Olsen. Niko­laj Lie Kaas stars as De­tec­tive Carl Morck, a trou­bled cop ban­ished to a desk job where he is ex­pected to close old un­solved cases at speed. Soon he be­comes ob­sessed with a sup­posed sui­cide that could well be any­thing but. Devo­tees of painstak­ingly foren­sic Dan­ish TV crime sto­ry­telling such as The Killing will fi nd The Keeper of Lost Causes quite rushed by com­par­i­son. Though this is a fair crit­i­cism, the fi lm is quite adept at cov­er­ing its tracks, thereby al­low­ing all big re­veals to re­tain their shock fac­tor. ( Stay away from the trailer, how­ever, which gives away far too much in ad­vance).
