Yes, I'm proud that this film is Swedish. It's stylish, it's nerve-racking and chilling and, above all, it's challenging. Not many swedes liked it - not many know about it. They should, though, because this film is one of the finest Sweden has to offer.
There is an edge to it that remains absent in many other thrillers - the tip-toeing around insanity. Most other films go head-on with insanity and crash into it - but this film never really reach it. Chilling, indeed.
Some great shots and fine performance makes this a very good film. Not truly great, but near it.
