Christoffer Boe, Denmark, 2003

92 min.DK/Feature

»Reconstruction« turns romantic drama inside out, laying bare emotions in an explosion of images. It follows Alex, a photographer, and beautiful Aimee as they meet by chance and fall in love in the course of one intense day. Their feelings for each other are put to the test as the world around them becomes more and more alien in a labyrinthine Copenhagen. Staking their existence they find themselves in free fall, with Alex facing the questions of how far he is willing to go and how much he is prepared to give up for his dream of true love.
