Storyline

På det lille stedet Høtten ble det for seks måneder siden begått et seksualdrap på 13 år gamle Katarina. Nå er det skjedd et nytt dødsfall - en av de to brødrene som mistenkes for det uoppklarte drapet blir funnet druknet. Dermed intensiveres etterforskningen. Forsterkninger kommer til stedet i form av den garvede Kripos-etterforskeren Nicholas Ramm (Reidar Sørensen). Etter hvert som Ramm går det lille samfunnet nærmere i sømmene, sniker det seg en uro inn under hans blå vinterfrakk. Fra å møte Høtten, med sin lekne urbane tilnærming, blir han drevet inn i et spill han etter hvert mister kontrollen over. Tvunget inn i et skjebnefelleskap mesannheten som et sjokk i det vinterbleke Høtten. Og den er langt verre enn Ramm hadde forestilt seg. Written by Anonymous

Angels Without Mercy
28 September 2007 | by (Brugge, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Clearly the Norwegian jury doesn't agree (read the other comments) but I think this Scandinavian take on David Lynch's TWIN PEAKS (hey, that's what they're marketing it as, so call me lazy, see if I care !) is one of the more startling cinematic experiences to come along in many a year. First time director Karin Julsrud didn't intend her fable of how violence can only breed more of the same to be taken as a documentary but as the idiosyncratic mix of drama, comedy and horror which led publicists to make the comparison in the first place. Unlike Lynch however, Julsrud doesn't let the viewers off the hook at film's end with a far-fetched supernatural conclusion but forces them to confront their own dark side by making some of the violent outbursts her film suggests (but rarely shows) seem 'righteous' at first, though that doesn't stop them from poisoning the close-knit society they sprang from. Opening with an atonal rendition of 'When the Saints Come Marching In', this spellbinding thriller charts the investigation led by big city cop Nicholas Ramm into the small town murders of a mentally retarded girl and one of the alleged perpetrators of that crime. To reveal more would take away much of the film's pleasures as well as shocks. Progressing thoughtfully, Julsrud has enlivened her narrative with such a wealth of telling details that you may need to see this one more than once. I for one welcome that prospect.
