a wonderful and powerful film
10 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this film blew my mind. it tells the story of a woman with a very painful past and she gets a chance to confront her past and not allow it to become a part of her future. in an interview in Italy when she was discussing the girl with the dragon tattoo with director Neils Arden oplev she explained that its not good to feel sorry for your self and that we need should take all the bad things if any in our lives and take them out on someone else instead of letting it stay and grow inside. i agree and thats what we get to see in this film is a woman who gets to express her pain and confront her abusive mother who is dying in the hospital. i highly recommend this film. Also i have also read a few comments on whether or not Hollywood will change noomi rapace as a person. i don't think so because she seems very content with who she is and where she wants to take the direction of her career.
