“Danish writer-director Laurits Flensted-Jensen isn’t one to make things easy for himself. His debut feature Neon Heart addresses themes including pornography, drugs rehab, disability, gay-bashing and football hooliganism; does it with a cast that’s roughly two-thirds non-professional; puts both cast and audience through experiences that some viewers may find awkward verging on excruciating; and yet manages to pull it all off with wit and lightness of touch, avoiding accusations of voyeurism or exploitation.” —Jonathan Romney, Screen International
