Storyline

"Valle lives a perfect life with his wife and young daughter, until Valle's younger brother Adam shows up. He makes his living as a drug dealer and is always getting himself into trouble. This time it is serious; he's lost 4 kilos of cocaine in a pick-up gone wrong. Adam has two days to clear his debt with the syndicate, otherwise he's a dead man. Valle has promised himself and his family never to get involved in Adam's business. Eventually however, he agrees to put up personal bail for Adam. Just as things seem to be going his way, Adam mistakenly shoots one of the men from the syndicate, putting not only his but everyone else's life at stake. Only Valle can save them. Written by Ulf Ahlberg

a compelling thriller from Sweden...
2 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

ISCARIOT is a dynamic and thrilling new Scandanavian drama based on the Judas Iscariot bible premise of betrayal. Set in modern Stockholm and detailing the dramas between two brothers and a hideous debt also involving drug running, for International audiences ISCARIOT allows for a great sense of thrilling sinking dread in the race against time to repay a debt to a very scary crime boss played well against type by charismatic Michael Nykvist from the hit AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. Directed by Slavic helmer Miko Lazic, ISKARIOT has that terrific Euro thriller feel you might have got from the Bourne Identity films. All chrome and cold concrete, icy suburbs and wintry trees, nervous conversations in quiet rooms, ISCARIOT is that style of widescreen crime drama movie that looks great on a big cinema screen with an audience drawn completely into the emotion and action. You really have no idea what will happen next or how and that allows for an immersing piece of taut Swedish cinema. This really good thriller has a lot more going for it than you might expect.
