Dirty Politics - King's Game review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
30/05/2007

The story is very Danish, but you have the suspicion it could be anywhere in the western world where spindoctors are important for modern politicians. Very good acting all around, but the commentary is probably for people interested in Danish politics.

A believable & uncomplicated depiction of political ambition & journalistic determination. - King's Game review by DW

Spoiler Alert

This is a joy to watch, especially the clear & concise subtitles. It tells a single theme story that moves forward at a steady pace without flashbacks or back stories to cause diversions. Most unusually, the main characters are all in happy, stress-flee marriages: makes a change!

I suppose politics & journalism are pretty much the same throughout the developed world but this had a most enjoyable uniqueness for me. A great watch.
