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.

Strong and important, but violent drama
24 August 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Therese inter-weening dramatic stories from the darkest side of Sweden makes out to be an interesting film, and maybe the best Swedish film I've ever seen.

The film is about love, jealousy and violence, and strong persons. Strong persons, and the dangerous ones which they fight.

We meet a female journalist who is married to a violent jealous husband, a young girl of which the family is ready to punish her by honor killing, and a night club owner which falls into serious trouble with a gang of criminals, which is threatening him to keep silent with what he has seen.

All the three stories are equally interesting, and the film is built up with cliffhangers. Each of the stories are good enough to be films on their own. While the film follows the three stories, we wonder what the connection between them is. You'll get the answer.

Exciting, well directed, well played and driven with our need to know how it all turns out. Well done!
