Princess (2006)

****
Denmark

It's tempting to brand Anders Morgenthaler's first feature a 'dogme-meets-anime', but it's too bracing and startling to be reduced to a 'something-meets-something'. It has the flaws you'd expect of any movie about a priest out to avenge his dead porn star of a sister as well as the rape of her five-year-old daughter (and Morgenthaler does routinely veer into sensationalism and exploitation). But its minor (and, for that matter, major) imperfections are overwhelmed by an overarching, galvanising vision.

dir: Anders Morgenthaler
voices of: Thure Lindhardt, Mira Hilli Mølle Hallund, Stine Fischer Christensen, Liv Corfixen, Tommy Kenter, Margrethe Koytu
