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>

Mediocre - for a Swedish film
18 April 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

It could easily have been a youth-related crime drama with the same ideas and elements - but without the invisibility twist. The latter provided no additional value, sometimes made perceptions more complex (e.g. invisibility vs. insensibility, under which conditions etc.) and lead to the fatal, but rather trivial and expected ending. Apart from Gustaf Skarsgård as the protagonist Niklas, I found the other frequent actors not catchy.

If you would like to see a real masterpiece on related topic, I would recommend Ghost (1990) with Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg.
