Julie is a young and newly qualified teacher from Copenhagen, Denmark. Fed up with her unfaithful boyfriend and big city life, she takes a job as a teacher on an idyllic island in southern Norway. Julie finds it difficult to be accepted in the closed-net community of the island. Slowly but surely, she discovers that the idyllic island hides many dark secrets. Julie is about to give up, but then she meets the island's sympathetic priest Roald. Beautiful and charming he becomes her gate into the community. Written by
I rather liked this film. Not too long, and genuinely creepy in parts. The low budget shows, but the film-makers don't over-stretch themselves so it works fine. The most obvious comparison is to "The Wicker Man", which has a similar premise. Sofie Gråbøl plays the lead role well, and Paul-Ottar Haga is perfect as the charismatic vicar. Definitely worth a look, more cerebral than watching a Bruce Willis film.
