    Copenhagen Does Not Exist

    ★★★★★

    A police fortress or a hippie commune? The non-existent Copenhagen.

     psychological elegy, a painful cinematographic story and a tense movie game on needles take place in the film “Copenhagen Does Not Exist” by the young Danish director Martin Skovbjerg.

    Blue Velvet

    ‘She wore blue velvet, bluer than velvet was the night, softer than satin was the light, from the stars.’ That is a strange world where director David Lynch puts viewers in the exciting story of Blue Velvet from the year 1986. This movie is a surrealistic escape from reality followed by various painful emotions and beautiful visuals.
