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

excellent
23 April 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

excellent movie... i like it so much... nice drama, good actors wonderful story and i hope to see again some other movie from this director. I like the photography very much i think that was perfect. i hope that this movie will be seen from other people in other countries i found this comment on the web that i totally disapprove: Family bonds are stretched to the breaking point in Swedish Miko Lazic's slick, soap opera-like thriller "Iscariot." Illustrating the film's subtitle, "Two Brothers, One Debt," Stockholm doctor Valle puts his life -- and those of his wife and daughter -- on the line to bail out his irresponsible younger brother Adam (Gustaf Skarsgard), a drug dealer and addict. Despite arty lensing and nuanced playing from Skarsgard and Michael Nvqvist as the chief villain, pix can't transcend stock situations and implausible plot twists. Slated for Swedish theaters on March 7, it's unlikely to travel.

After handsome but none-too-bright Adam is robbed of a large shipment of cocaine, crime boss Masen (Nyqvist) calls in the debt. At a loss, Adam turns to his older Sib. Improbably, respectable Valle has a shady past unknown to his attractive wife , wasted in a purely ornamental role). Feeling remorse ("If I never sold that , you'd never have started using it"), Valle decides to take matters into his own hands. Mannered cinematography, full of reflections and shots through glass, feels better suited to another genre, while stiff editing rarely supports thriller rhythms.
