Storyline

'The King's Mountain Path' is a long line for wandering, with unmanned sleeping accommodation cabins at appropriate distances. It is not without dangers, in particular when narrow and shallow but speedily running creeks must be crossed. - When they were teenagers, a boy and girl wandered along this path, and had a sexual relation. They decided to meet again after exactly ten years, and at exactly this path. Both kept the promise. The movie alternates between both time periods. At the second period the boy (or man) finds the girl's name in the cabin register, and notices that she is three days ahead of him. In a later cabin she is only two, and then only one day ahead. And then he finds her - drowned in a creek. In another scene he said that she was the only one he ever liked. Because of the shock he gets paranoid ideas.

A creepy thriller under the midnight sun.
21 January 2000 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film in short is about a man who has trekked with his girlfriend in the north of Sweden on a trail called Kungsleden. He later ends his affair but she tells him that they perhaps will meet again on the trail. The whole film concentrates on his search for her on a trek, closing in on her and getting more and more insane as he wanders on.

This film has a creepy atmosphere and you can clearly see a Swedish melancholic vibe here. The tension is slowly rising, until your sitting on the edge of your seat in horror and excitement. Truly an atmospheric horrific thriller Made in Sweden.
