The release of Christoffer Boe's multiple-award winning feature debut Reconstruction couldn't have bought the publicity up to its premiere if it had wanted to.
Just the day before it's release it became the Danish submission for the Oscars; before that it had picked up the Camera d'Or in Cannes and Boe was named best new director by FIPRESCI. Consequently, expectations were very high for the film, which despite its star cast (Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Maria Bonnevie) is very much of an art-house film.
However, while it performed solidly on its 13 prints, it only made it into sixth place with a screen average of $3,981 - way behind the new chart topper The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
Pirates Of The Caribbean still held the highest screen average although dropping some 43%, while the local comedy drama Stealing Rembrandt continues its successful run in third with 175,592 admissions so far.
In its second week the local comedy drama Turn Right By The Yellow Dog continued to plummet with a shocking 49 admissions per screen average. It was released by SF Film.
