Crime Krigsfotografen: ’It is the hardest thing I have tried in my life’
'Krigsfotografen' was shown actually to have been a film about what drives the 50-year-old photographer Jan Grarup to time and time again to seek out the world's hot spots - from the genocide in Rwanda over the earthquake in Haiti to the besieged Mosul in Iraq and report from there. To literally pay with their lives to give us an insight into the world's atrocities.
But while Grarup was at work in The central African Republic in 2014, dropped his ex-wife on at home and it turned out she had a tumor in the brain. And that it was teminalt.

the Premise was, in other words, changed radically. Both for the film and not at least for Grarups existence in the whole. The ex-wife had always been the guarantor of the stability of their three shared children's lives (Grarup is the father of four in total), while he traveled around the planet's most perilous own. Now it was suddenly him, who had the guard on the home front.
'Krigsfotografen' is primarily a film about how one balances his career as one of the world's most recognized and award-winning war and katastrofefotografer with life as alenefar at home on the Østerbo. With packed lunches, pizzabakkker, teenageproblemer, homework help, and what's there now hear.

It does excellent with both tenderness and presence. There are cut completely to the bone, and the award-winning director Boris B. bertram was as a fly on the wall - both when they were drifting on the ears in Mosul and when studentervognen noisy arrive to the us. It helps, of course, at the Grarup is an extremely self-confident gentleman, who well know how to posing in front of a camera.
But Bertram has obviously got everyone's confidence - not least the children - so that there occurs in fact not a single feigned moment along the way. If you, as I, the undersigned, have tried to work together with Instead, and you will also know that it would be very little in his spirit.

Will you be clever of the artist Jan Grarup, on what it is that makes him such a unique photographer, that you can't help but look at even the most horrible situations, so it is not 'Krigsfotografen' to see. It is instead a portrait of a man Jan Grarup in his life probably the most vulnerable situation. And as such a totally unique experience.
