The film was set intentionally in no specific city or country so the story could take place in any Northern European city (the exterior shots were filmed mostly in Potsdam, Germany). This is recognizable by the fact that the vehicle licence plates have no format used in the EU, the uniforms of the police officers are just plain black and the police car has no markings. See more »
I enjoyed very much this movie as it was a blend between dark and fantasy. The actors fitted the roles and I liked the game between the "old" and "new" characters. What I liked the most was the fact that the movie was not predictable and had a touch of sensibility, which most movies nowadays tend to miss. As an European movie I recommend it without hesitation and the thriller part was blended perfectly with the dark story. As a minor observation I can add that the story could have gone a bit darker without fading away the sensibility of the father- daughter relationship. In this light, I think the movie can be improved, but the written part on which is based I think succeeds as a story. So if you want a quality movie, with an imaginative story and good actors, this is the right movie for you.
