Found out about this movie in some kind of list online, was always interested in non Hollywood movies, so I watched it. Audio/Video quality of it was far from great since it must have been from VHS with Swedish subs burnt on.
The film itself is worth watching, not only for sci-fi enthusiasts as it mostly explores the psychological aspects on the characters.
The idea of a weird experiment has been made many times but this specific one, an experiment on weather and how it affects people, is pretty unique.
It is a pretty low budget movie so don't expect special effects etc. but the creators have done a good job about it and it looks pretty realistic.
Acting, dialogue and the script are the movie's biggest strengths. In my opinion the negatives are the duration being a bit longer than it should have been and while the start and end of the film are nice, it is a bit monotonous around the middle though in a way that serves a purpose.
If you don't have a problem watching non English speaking films and the subject of the movie intrigues you, I recommend it.
