Good Thriller in beautiful surroundings
8 April 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

In 1985, Maelstrom was sent on Norwegian TV during Easter, and the filming location was in the city of Ålesund and its surrounding. I lived in Ålesund as a student in the mid 80's and watched it, and therefore enjoyed the familiar scenery.

Now in 2007 I bought Maelstrom on DVD and saw it again, for the first time in 22 years!

And I really liked it! The plot is good, building up the tense excitement during the six episodes. Most of the actors are English, and it is fun to listen when they try to speak Norwegian :-)

But anyway, it is a good thriller with an ending many of you could see coming up.

And of course the beautiful scenery of Ålesund is an extra bonus.

Recommended!
