A Swedish The Hitcher

Author: Movie Lover_5 from Sweden
4 September 2011

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Went into the cinema with a very open mind, and was pleasantly surprised! The movie starts out with Malin (Sofia Ledarp) moving from her hometown. During her road trip she starts to feel uncomfortable as she is followed by a strange man (Bergqvist). One night Malin is kidnapped and this starts a battle for survival.

That is pretty much it. But I was on the edge of my seat most of the film. You are never quite sure if Malin is going to make it or not. You can tell the filmmakers are huge horror fans - a genre not very common in Swedish films.

There are some flaws, though. The film takes a while to really get going and maybe there are one too many forrest vistas. But overall, if you want some classic tension then give this film a shot!

30 promising minutes followed by 67 predictable ones.

6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I have to admit that the the makers of this film had me hooked during the first 30 minutes or so of it. It's a shame the rest of it is so predictable and full of improbabilities that it ends up being quite a disappointment of a film.

It has a lot going for it. Two somewhat talented directors (though one could question if there's a need for two in this case), a brilliant cast and a beautiful setting. What it lacks is a decent and not so derivative script.

Some of the things that bugged me:

Sofia Ledarp's character hides in a hunter's tower in one scene. This makes for poor choice of location as there's not a single person in the (Swedish) audience that doesn't immediately think of Kjell Sundvall's Jägarna.

There's a German hunter character that turns up halfway through the film. I don't speak German, but I'm relatively sure that he says he's hunting moose. What else is there to hunt in Sweden for a German hunter? Stereotypes anyone?

Björn Kejllman's character is shot in his side, possibly through his stomach and still manages to survive one night and half a day out in the woods though it is quite likely that he has sustained internal bleeding.

In one scene, Sofia Ledarp's character manages to sneak into the back-seat of the car driven by the man hunting her, where she gets hold of a phone. She uses it to call the Swedish equivalent of 911 and she has to whisper quite high for the operator to hear her. Why is it that Kjell Bergqvist's character (the man hunting her) can't hear her? He has to be deaf not to hear her, and he's obviously not deaf as he manages to find her wherever she hides for the entirety of the film.

It's highly improbable that Björn Kejllman's character would be found at all at the end of the film.

Regarding the ending, there's not much to say. This is the kind of film that ends in one of two ways:

1) The main character manages to escape and runs out into an open field where he/she gets rescued by a police/military helicopter.

2) The main character manages to escape and finds his/her way to a road, where he/she gets help from the passengers of a conveniently approaching car. The driver of the car is either a savior or, in some cases, the man hunting him/her.

Guess which one they went with...

Followed by a rapist

5/10
Author: OJT from Norway
24 August 2014

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.
