Trivia

Hollywood wanted to make a remake of this film. Kjell Sundvall was positive to this as long as it was a "First Blood" type of film. But the producers who wanted to buy the rights wanted to make it about cowboys in the Nevada dessert, shooting horse for fun. Kjell Sundavall didn't sell the rights after he heard this. See more »

Intense action-drama about illegal hunting
13 June 1999 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Sundvall has made an intense movie about illegal hunting. It's loaded with tense and excitement. Actually, it's about people living in a desolated place, not wanting to play with the rules of the community. We haven't seen such an intense movie in Sweden for at least a decade.
