Trivia

The scene in which DD enters a huge room full of computers, and talks to a guy who plays a computer game called "Storm", was shot in November 2004 on the world's largest computer festival, "Dreamhack", arranged every year in Sweden with over 6000 participants. Director Björn Stein thought that the festival would act as a cool and spectacular environment that would fit perfectly into the film. See more »

Something new in Swedish cinema
17 November 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I just got home from the world premiere of this movie, and this is the first time I have seen a Swedish action movie with sci-fi elements that does not come off as quaint or just outright bad. This is a very smart movie that, while all you see is not fully explained, the right things are, and it manages to weave different parts of the story together quite nicely.

There is realism and depth (and pain!) in the psychological side of the movie, and I particularly like how the characters evolve over time - the storytelling technique works very well.

I also like Jonas Karlsson's acting - his character could easily have become cliché or cheesy (there is something with Swedish that just isn't as cool as English, when doing this type of movie), but he avoids these traps and pulls it off with class. In general the acting, in its genre, is better than most Swedish movies that try to be this cool. Because Storm is cool.

I heard this movie being put forward as a "Swedish Matrix", and while the two movies differ quite a lot, and the Matrix obviously had a much bigger budget, the comparison is not completely unwarranted since they both tell parallel stories in clever ways and play with our perception of what a normal life is. Storm tells its tale on a much more personal scale, and it does it excellently.
