I don't know how successful "Falsk som vatten" is as a thriller. The first hour or so is an interesting drama, very well-acted by *all* actors (although Stellan Skarsgård simply isn't in the film enough). The last half hour turns out to be some kind of "Fatal Attraction" knife wielding film, only the other way around since the mistress is the one being chased by the betrayed wife. The film is, without a doubt, a good film, but I so wanted to love this film, especially since I really like Hasse Alfredson's previous film "Den enfaldige mördaren", and I must say that in the end it was a disappointment. Good drama, not so good thriller.
