Storyline

While in a party promoted by her chief and friend Måns Wenngren, the fiscal attorney, Rebecka Martinsson, receives a call from her former sister-in-law, Sanna Strandgård, telling that her brother and preacher Viktor was murdered, stabbed and with severed hands, and she would be arrested. Rebecka heads to her hometown Kiruna and defends Sanna, but the evidences found by the police in her house prove her guilty and she is arrested. While investigating the crime, Rebecka is haunted by her past and faces the bigoted and fanatic religious dwellers that worship the local church, and is more convinced of the innocence of Sanna.

Epihany
19 November 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Although I'm not a religious person myself I was very touched by his film. Yes, I am a stranger to the church and Jesus but I really think that the story proves what can happen when you join any kind of sect or closed community. There is both love and hate, weak minds and strong minds, leaders and followers. Very thought-provoking film this one. Especially the way it dealt with delicate matters like for example the way parents deal with their children and how loyalties between friends can get corrupted over time.

And the film music, not to mentions the hymns altogether add an extra dimension to the tight and sweaty drama that is actually taking place in the most northern part of Sweden. A really beautiful and cold place to be. I think the footage really capture this vast and beautiful landscape.

Amen!
