Storyline

Nicklas lives a pretty normal teenage life, until one day, not far from graduation, when a gangster from his school beats him up. Nicklas passes out, and the next day when he returns to school he notices that nobody seems to notice him. As he tries to get attention he notices that his actions disappear the moment he has done them. He throws a book and as soon as it lands it's back where he picked it up. He has returned as a ghost, but he can do nothing but passively observe as the police stand clueless to the murder. Written by sippan <zorkar@yahoo.com>

Great film, instantly a favourite
18 December 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Being from Australia, not much news of Swedish films reach our shores. I had no idea about this one or the book it is based upon. I simply caught it while flicking the channels one day. It looked interesting, so I stuck with it, and I'm glad I did.

I absolutely adored this film. From the outset I found the main actor, Gustaf Skarsgard, very intriguing. I was surprised to find out this was his first major film role, he handled it perfectly. Never over the top, never underwhelming, just right.

I didn't pick the twist up in this film right away. I'm usually quick with those sorts of things, but it just didn't strike me that there would be a twist at all until it actually occurred. The feeling you get when it dawns just drums up the excitement and tempo of the film, when you suddenly realise that yes, there is something at stake here.

I also loved the very unHollywood ending. This film turned all those cliches about - characters you were meant to hate were ones you ended up feeling the most for, and the 'friend' who you usually feel sympathy for ends up doing nothing but drawing out your anger. It's rare that the real villian of a piece (especially a female one) becomes a sort of hero towards the end, and it can be confusing. But for me it worked well, and added real dimension to what would have otherwise just been a good film, not a great one.

The combination of great acting, real emotion and the eventual twist (or two) it what makes this movie so brilliant for me, and an instant favourite. Highly recommended.
