A nice little thriller...
31 May 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia.) – See all my reviews

Opening with very compelling title credits, Richard Hobert's Ögat (The Eye) continues the suspense for the remaining two hours. Ingrid (Lena Endre) is in a seemingly perfect relationship with an outwardly perfect man, Frederik (Samuel Fröler). What Ingrid doesn't know is that Frederik is not quite all there. In fact, his obsessive jealousy stretches so far that he fakes a suicide in order to see Ingrid's reactions to his death (albeit, from afar and through 'spy-cams') and to validate her 'fidelity' to him after his untimely demise. When Ingrid's old friend, Mikael (Göran Stangertz), well known singer-songwriter, discovers the creepy truth about the compulsively infatuated Frederik, he sets out to protect Ingrid and unearth any further dirt on Frederik. The cast is uniformly excellent, with sufficiently tense moments and some great writing and direction from Hobert, this Swedish effort is quite entertaining - Ingrid's revenge at being so unmercifully tricked is a very satisfying moment
