Pretty good for a Norwegian film
25 August 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

"Salige er de som tørster" was a pretty good Norwegian police-thriller. It is about a girl who is brutally raped and the police`s investigation. This thriller is well executed and it does sometime become a bit exciting, but sometimes the movie seems to "run out of gas", it becomes a bit slow. All in all, this is a step in the right direction for Norwegian films. One of the best Norwegian films you could see. 7/10
