Trivia

In order to enhance the authenticity of the movie, director Erik Skjoldbjærg casted only amateurs, including Morten Håland, who portrays his own twin brother, police officer Erik Håland. The only exception was the professional actor Frode Winther, whose physical resemblance to the robber Kjell Alrich Schumann made him an obvious choice for the role. See more »

A good film but not without problems
15 October 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

While coherently depicting the original story of the 2004 robbery of this bank in Stavanger, Norway, I have to advise people that I have been motion sick for almost all the film. The camera is mostly behind an actors shoulder, with focus on the shoulder but in many scenes not on what it actually looks at. This, combined with a lot of hand-held filming, made me feel very sick from watching it. The otherwise very fluently and grippingly told story is lacking some overview shots, and as with so many films these days the camera is very very close to the actors, which in combination with the fast editing can lead to a certain disorientation. The ending scenes do benefit from the absence of all this, and rest burned into memory long after the film ends.
