Plot – Spoilers:
Der Kommer En Dag is set in a Denmark when women didn’t earn as much as men for the same job and when children from a certain segment of society were considered riffraff, fit only for being groomed into the working class.

Brothers, Erik and Elmer, with a track record of petty offences are shunted into a state-run home when their mother falls sick. Typical of how such institutions are often depicted in cinema, the master is a cruel disciplinarian who chooses to ignore the sexual abuse his tyranny fosters. Except here, this film is true and based on the abuse that occurred in Danish state homes for over three decades, up until the ’70s. The uncovered details were so bad that the Danish PM publicly apologized in 2019 to surviving victims.

So now you rape a few kids and beat 1 or 2 to death and you’re the bad guy? Ungrateful

The amount of people who can’t laugh at an obvious shit post is funnier than people online making threats. Feel free to come I have more than enough ammo for dorks on the internet.

Excellent movie, typical of Danish cinema. Tragic story (along the lines of “The Magdalene Sisters”) and an indictment of the system which allows such things to happen. Beautifully acted, the kids are brilliant. Thanks for posting EUM!

Many times I wonder if people these days realize how common abuse was in all aspects of childhood. Unfortunatly, there was some familiar themes that went on when I was in school in the 1970’s. Not as extreme, but always in the system as a constant threat if you step out of line. Pretty good movie, and an important story to tell.

Thank you very much for this one, you adorable EUM people. I just want to cuddle you all! ((no homo)) Great movie, great cast. Exceptional acting… All-in-all, this is a really fine film. My one complaint, and seriously, what kind of a review would it be without at least one complaint… my one complaint was not seeing the boys attack, dismember and eviscerate the principal and his cohorts. Especially the one-handed, eraser-head-looking, pedo ass-bandit. We really needed a scene where a squad of angry 12 and 13 year-old insurrectionists are playing dodge ball with his brain. Just a quick little scene cause brains don’t hold up very well upon impact. But still, it should have happened. And if you disagree with me you’re worse than Hitler, a racist, and you probably smell like cabbage.

Yes…. Really good powerful drama. And once again the kids stole the show…. A bit like in 10 1/2

Excellent thought provoking stuff.
And uplifting at the end … Which is a pleasant change …
