France released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: Danish ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), French ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Alternative Footage, Behind the scenes, Documentary, Interactive Menu, Making Of, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Anna (Ann Eleonora Jørgensen of Italian for Beginners) has just been hired as the chaplain at a women's prison. Inexperienced, but compassionate and energetic, she begins to feel her way amongst the prisoners. Soon, a new prisoner, Kate (Trine Dyrholm of The Celebration), is transferred to the prison and causes a stir. Marion (Sonja Richter of Open Hearts), a junkie, has heard that Kate helped another prisoner get clean and goes to her when her fellow prisoner and dealer, Jossi (Sarah Boberg), cuts her off. Marion kicks heroin, and believes that the introspective Kate has healed her. When Anna gets wind of this, she goes to see Kate, but Kate doesn't want to talk to her. She's even a bit hostile, telling Anna to look after herself and the baby in her belly. Anna believes herself infertile after fruitlessly trying to have a child with her loving husband, Frank (Lars Ranthe). She's shocked to discover that she is actually pregnant, but her joy turns to dismay when she learns that the fetus may have a serious birth defect. Meanwhile, Henrik (Nicolaj Kopernikus), a mild-mannered guard, finds himself increasingly drawn to Kate, to the point of putting his job in jeopardy, while the ruthless Jossi, losing business, feels threatened by the strange new inmate. Writer/director Annette K. Olesen and co-writer Kim Fupz Aakeson made In Your Hands in the Dogme style, shooting on video at Nyborg State Prison. The film was shown at the 2004 Berlin International Film Festival. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Berlin International Film Festival, ...In Your Hands (2004) ( Forbrydelser )

Format: DVD
Director Annette K Olesen has recently contributed to the success of the first two series of DR's Borgen - Series 1 [DVD] with some excellent episodes, particularly 9 and 10. Olesen is the writer and director of this film produced in 2003 and also contributes to the extras featured on the disc including a Q&A and a brief chat with each of the main stars.
Borgen viewers will probably recognise two of the stars of Borgen Benedikte Hansen and Petrine Agger who appear in In Your Hands as inmates of the women's prison in which the story is set. Trine Dyrholm is fantastic playing the role of Kate Kristoffersen a transferee into the prison after getting into problems at another location. She soon alienates herself from the other women and seeks solace in the arms of one of the male prison guard, her contact officer played by Nicolaj Kopernikus.
Perfect performances by all the cast but none more so than the scenes involving Ann Eleonora Jørgensen who plays a priest, Anna. Anna applies for the temporary position filling in for an older male priest in the prison and shows a good empathy with the prisoners, if not a good understanding of the prison rules. Anna believes she may be pregnant after the suggestiuon is made to her by one of he inmates. Together with her partner we see how the pregnancy is dealt with and the moral dilemmas posed to Anna and her night-shift working partner. Anna decides to look into what crimes Kate has committed to land her into custody and then reacts in a way that an expectant mother may in her situation.
The film is certainly worth a re-watch, something I'll probably be doing later in the year.

a film to really make you think ; kind of like bad girls but with a moral debate and some top acting ! really challenges you regarding your views on abortion , christianity , acts of god , the power of the mind and forgiveness . Guess it wont be for every ones taste [ no schaltzy holywood re having a baby here]. Brilliant details of humiliation of prison life. A must for danish film fans .And not just a film for women , my partner loved it too .

Hard-hitting drama set in a Danish women's prison 27 Mar. 2012

The film is certainly worth a re-watch, something I'll probably be doing later in the year. It was a joy to see two of the main stars of DR's The Killing - Complete Season 1 - 5-DVD Box Set ( Forbrydelsen (Forbrytelsen) ) ( The Killing - Complete Season One ) [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - United Kingdom ] (Jørgensen and Kopernikus) in different roles to the roles they would take on three years later which would win Jørgensen an award for Best Supporting Actress at the Crime Thriller Awards in 2011 in London for her role as griveing mother Pernille Birk Larsen. In this film Kopernikus plays a prison guard, somewhat different to his role of Vagn in The Killing.
Interestingly the Danish title of The Killing is FORBRYDELSEN (meaning The Crime) and the Danish title of this film is FORBRYDELSER (meaning Crimes).
Well worth a watch!

I didn't know filmakers still produced powerful tragedies 21 Oct. 2005
By TOMMY C ELLIS - Published on Amazon.com
As a jail chaplain, I found this story powerful and compelling. The protaganist is a new female priest, who serves as an interim chaplain at a Scandanavian prison for women. She begins as a breath of fresh air for the inmates, humble, yet hopeful, holy, yet willing to offer that cup of cold water to sinners. However, the chaplain is also middle-aged, and childless. A new inmate comes into the prison--one who is said to have a gift of healing. Yet, she is cautious, and somewhat distant. When she first encounters the priest with her "Anytime you want to talk, let me know" greeting, the healer's answer is shocking: take care of yourself and your child! Sure enough she turns up pregnant. As the story progresses, there is a staff-inmate romance, the healer's past crime puts the now-pregnant chaplain into a crisis of her own, and the story winds up to a powerful, troubling, truly dramatic finish.

The acting here is subtle, yet compelling. The setting is somewhat realistic, However, for Americans like myself, used to very crowded facilities, the one portrayed here almost looked like a country club. Also, some of the actions committed by the correctional staff seemed quite laxadasical. Nevertheless, the overall impression was true to life, and true to heart!

Bottom-line: This is a powerful film, done is the form of classic tragedy. When you finish, you'll be left meditating on Jesus' words to "Judge not, lest you be judged."
