Review of ‘The Last Patient’ (2022) [Filmin]: A psychological puzzle

‘The last patient’ is a Danish thriller where we will find ourselves sitting in the office of a psychologist who believes that her last patient is a serial killer. He has 45 minutes for each patient, while we have 95 minutes to watch the film.

‘The Last Patient’ is a thriller where a psychologist will have to treat a patient who suspects that he is a serial killer. A film that takes place in our current era, in a country where psychology is a highly acclaimed science. The protagonist of this story is an acclaimed doctor who will find herself embroiled in a consultation that she would never have expected. Of all the Nordic thrillers we’ve seen over the years, this is without a doubt one of the most surprising films of the year. And in ‘The Last Patient’ by Anders Rønnow Klarlund, chaos reigns in perfect order. An almost poetic game in which for 95 minutes our minds are being analyzed while Dr. Sussanne must save this Mark Zidenius. Although in some aspects of the story lame, I have to admit that until you finish it you do not feel that the director did not feel what he wanted you to feel. You go up and down as if you were on a roller coaster where the tracks of the attraction are the thoughts inside your head.

In the mind of the serial killerAnton Hjejle, the last patient

Built with clarity, you never know what’s going on. You just have to participate with your eyes, and you don’t need anything else. It’s all in what happens before your eyes. It’s like when you put together a puzzle. You throw it on the table and all the pieces and all you see is what has to fit. Here you will rarely be surprised with a new fact. ‘The Last Patient’ smooth start for what lasts. But when everything starts to come together you realize that it is orchestrating against what you think will happen. It’s funny how I feel about this movie, because I thought everything was chewed up, but in reality what the tape becomes is a magic trick. Like those magicians who are telling you that it is not a white rabbit that you hold in your hands, but in reality you find out that it is not; but a red horse. And at the end of the trick you discover that the illusionist has made you see that he is right.

Suspicion is just one pieceAnton Hjejle, the last patient

I have to be honest with you, there were times when I thought they were slow. Especially, when they are in the consultation. I thought that what I was seeing would not make sense, that they had spread the gum of the script, seeing nothing but the theme of the film. When in reality the director tells us about some tracks that will make the tape do a 180 degree turn. Sand you have this feeling, that it is taking too long, that it seems to be going nowhere and is a waste of time; I ask you to just watch it. I cannot end this review without commenting on the brilliant performance of actress Signe Egholm Olsen, who plays our lead psychologist Suzanne. The interpretation of which puts us fully in the shoes of this character, who has a very deep history. The best thing about this film is that, in my opinion, it is not only a thriller, but also talks about some social issues that should be exposed to give them more visibility.
