Compelling, realistic, and very human film.
6 February 2011 | by (Gothenburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Some friends and I saw Odjuret (English title: Savage) at the 2011 Gothenburg International Film Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden. We're not really the "art film" kind of people but we went to see it mainly because a mutual friend of ours is in it. Also, it has been nominated for the Best Nordic Film of the Year award.

The atmosphere of the film is one of a stifling, nearly suffocating frustration caused by the suppression of the dreams and desires of the characters, all of whom have various needs that are not being fulfilled. This is something to which everyone can relate. There are the things we want and need in life, and then there are the countless circumstances beyond our control that prevent us from acquiring those wants and needs.

The film takes the audience down this path of frustrated dreams and suppressed desires. Along the way we find out what happens when one's dreams are denied until one reaches a breaking point.

I give the film a 10 out of 10 and hope it wins the award.
