A great disappointment
22 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't like the film at all. As far as I know, Scandinavian people were always racists, so I couldn't imagine that they have ever taken a stranger and treated him like a friend. Besides, this boring love story... I can't believe that Nordic girl could fall in love with a stranger. The acting is without a spark; as for the main character he is extremely inexpressive, lacks of charisma. Signu... yeah, she is beautiful & SO stupid!!!!!!!! I think Nordic girls are more severe, not so tender as she was. But nature, rocks, rushing sea, trees, the grey sky, animals, some funny fighting scenes - they deserve 10. But I can give only 5 because of the plot.
