It's very sad when we get this little movie gems that people end up forgetting all about. Well, I Skuggan av värmen is an incredibly beautiful and powerful movie.
I'm not gonna talk much about the plot, i will say this though that the story is about a male cop who falls in love with a female drug addict.
The movie is set in Sweden, a perfect setting for a movie of this type since it's always dark outside.
By the end of the movie no problems have been solved, life is as miserable as it was at the beginning. I would really love to discuss the ending because it is very original, but i'm gonna keep this review spoiler-free.
I skuggan av värmen is a movie that's tragic, touching, romantic, powerful, and very realistic. An important movie that everyone should see.
I give it a 9/10, one of the best Swedish movies i've ever seen.
