Storyline

Two young sisters act against their family's "code of honour" and their lives become a deadly nightmare. Two bouncers at a popular club are attacked by criminals igniting total war. An award winning journalist presses charges of spousal abuse against her husband only to become a hated pariah amongst their common colleagues. But what none of their aggressors could have foreseen is the enormous will to fight and prevail that is awaked in the hearts of those threatened one time too many.

Excellent title of an excellent movie!
22 October 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The Swedish title is translated into 'When darkness falls' and this is actually the best movie of 2006 so far.

I feel that this movie from start to finish is in a big hurry to tell us about extremely important problems in todays society, and it manages to come through in flying colors. The movie is two hours and 15 minutes long, but the pace is high throughout the entire movie.

Certainly not a light weight family movie, the story is a bit like Altman's 'Shortcuts', about people that could be your next door neighbor, your closest friend, or you yourself. People that for different reasons are in serious trouble. It's a violent, dark, yet truly heartbreaking story. Although light years away from the lives of the average Swedish families, it presents realistic insights into the terrors that lurks 'when darkness falls'.
