Malin (Sofia Ledarp) has recently gone through a family tragedy, and has decided to move from her hometown, up North. During her road trip she starts to feel uncomfortable as she is followed by a strange man in a Jeep (Kjell Bergqvist). He acts in a way that makes her scared. He follows and tries to stop her in the remote landscape. This turns out to be the start of a nightmare.
A Swedish made by the feature debuting directors, Mattias Olsson and Henrik JP Åkesson, which manages to take a grip on you after a few minutes. The first half an hour is haunting, realistic and brilliant. In a way this film is typically Swedish, with long camera lingerings on the nature and landscapes. The remote landscapes plays a major part of the film. I'm afraid the film also in a Swedish way turns out to be mediocre. The fails to hold the grip, and you turn out to be non caring as a viewer.
Then the film turn in a more traditional way. I'm afraid the story begins to turn unlikely, and has some unnatural dialog, which also annoys. I reckon it's not a Swedish way, but the lack of discussion and questions between people meeting for the first time in odd situations is almost unbelievable. They all act strangely to the situation they are in. It's not the actors, but the script lacking the dialog which makes it believable. But if you are able too see away from that. then you might have a nice watch.
