When Renko shoots Iamskoy and the public baths, Iamskoy falls backward over the railing. He starts to fall straight down, which would be logical. But the aerial shot shows him landing out in the pool, in the water, several feet from the edge of the pool. He should have landed on the pool deck, not in the water. See more »
I didn't have high expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. It's hard to write anything about this type of film without spoiling, but what I can say without telling too much about the plot is, that the film is a non-cliché film, which still is full of clichés (love scene being the biggest). Filming locations are good, though "Moscow" (Helsinki) is a bit too similar to Stockholm.
The movie may be a bit too long for the American taste, but for more European film taste the length was just perfect. The end was so complicated, that even Agatha Christie would have been proud. The final solution between the main characters was completely different from what I expected, and definitely was that cherry for the cake.
