Critical reception[edit]

Remix was a major film by Martin Hagbjer who had won the 2005 Prize of the Children's Jury at Lübeck Nordic Film Days. Reviews were mixed. Most critics noted a lack of surprise, but praised the fine acting, especially by the film's two leads Camilla Bendix and Micky Skeel Hansen.

Berlingske Tidende's film critic Ebbe Iversen gave the film four stars out of six and called Micky Skeel Hansen "a true star with musicality, attractive looks and a both defiant and vulnerable radiance which gives him the appearance of a new James Dean".[1]
