The Bench 2000 ★★★½

Had no expectations of this film at all. I mean how interesting can a film be of watching a drunk guy on a bench. Well, as it turns out, very interesting. Jesper Christensen delivers an excellent performance as Kaj, a grumpy old man with plenty of demons. When a battered mother and her child show up in his neighbourhood, he is roped in to help and consequently has some tough choices to make. I particularly found the ending to be very good and in character.
