A Tense, Dark and Dramatic Thriller
4 June 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While driving home in the country playing sex games with his gorgeous wife Liv (Stine Hoel Varvin) by the cellular, the successful Andreas (Trond Fausa Aurvåg) has a car accident and becomes crippled and impotent. His young wife leaves him and while alone in his big house, he receives the visit of a handyman from the social service. Wagner (Svante Martin) builds walkways and installs an elevator to facilitate the life of Andreas. Meanwhile Liv supersedes her trauma and returns home, and Andreas, unable to satisfy her sexual desires, proposes she has sex with Wagner. Liv becomes close to Wagner and discloses a dark secret from his past, and the stranger unravels the truth about him and his real intentions.

"Andreaskorset" is a great little movie, with a tense, dark and dramatic story. The director Martin Asphaug shifts from an erotic tale in the very beginning, it to a heavy and powerful drama and ending in a great thriller. The performances of Stine Hoel Varvin, Trond Fausa Aurvåg and Svante Martin are excellent, and I felt a bit disappointed with the cliché in the conclusion and with the dark humor in the last scene. This unknown film is a jewel to be discovered by fans of an original story. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Jogo Perigoso" ("Dangerous Game")
