Storyline

The crew of the TV show "Real TV" with controlling boss Gunnar on the front line will soon begin production of a reality show for which participants are selected to survive in the wilderness. Gunnar has gathered a production team of four people: The friends Lasse and Per , the Swedish girl Elin and the new girl Sara. To test his new employees, Gunnar takes them to a log cabin where he used to spend summers as a kid. The cabin is located far away from civilisation, hidden in the dark, mysterious woods. The team has to make it through a weekend, finding food that nature has to offer, and neither cellular phones nor cigarettes are allowed. When Lasse and Per find a dead body in a lake near the cottage, the group is being tested. Gunnar is suggesting that they should continue the weekend without mentioning anything to Sara and Elin about what they found. But soon the team experiences some escalating incidents which lead to paranoia, accusations and mistrust. Written by Anonymous

2 Thumbs up, if I had more nearly all of them
23 May 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I've just watched this movie on television in accordance of a friend of mine. There are a few words to be said about this making. At first it was really interesting to watch this movie, due to its great and fabulous pictures: the norwegian landscape (really nice), the setting (deep dark woods, a fairy lake, a tent and an old wooden house). Furtheron the choice of the cast is fulfilling the dark and frightening atmosphere which the spectator is demanding to watch. The story, set into this setting is very similar to "The blair witch project", even if the norwegian poster of the comment in front doesn't think so. For me and my friend, it seemed to be like this. The most fascinating fact, on my opinion, is the ending. I don't know which alternate endings are on the DVD, but on the TV-version the ending isn't fix. It's up to the spectator, to interprete why these strange happenings occurred in this small part of norway. Very annoying was the dumb acting of the protagonists like in other films: blair witch project, return of the living dead, dawn of the dead .... But maybe, they have to act likethis. I think I will never understand, why people have to switch in strange situations and leave tents, houses and so on. This is why I voted this movie with 8 out of 10 points. I'm still fascinated.
