Could have been so much more
7 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Swedish policewoman Maria Wern suddenly finds herself the victim of a prank caller turned creepy stalker and narrowly escapes an attempt on her life before deciding a little time away would do her good. She decides to accept an invitation to a get-together on a faraway island where some of her old female friends celebrate that they graduated upper secondary 20 years ago.

Unfortunately, this does not shake off the stalker, now turned killer, who cleverly disconnects the phone lines, cripples the boat to the mainland and hides all the cellphones before starting to pick off the girls one by one.

The movie is riddled with clichés and the girls quickly assume the stereotypical roles of similar movies, the quiet one, the confrontational one, the frightened one and so on. Unfortunately the main character remains rather gray and devoid of personality.

Despite Maria Wern's clever thinking that the girls should stay in Paris to find out who the murderer is, most of the movie's dialogue consists of the girls shouting each other's name looking for each other, since they persistently break this simple rule. Even Maria Wern herself thoughtlessly leaves one of her friends in the lurch so she can be easily finished off by the killer.

Overall, I'm surprised that this movie made it to the cinema, since it has all the characteristics of a Made-for-TV crime thriller. The bad dialogue, the formulaic script and so on. Strangely, the movie's cast is quite good, starring some of the best Swedish female actors of their generation, like Vanna Rosenberg, Helena af Sandeberg, Fanny Risberg (from the Arn movies), and 2-time Guldbagge nominee Frida Hallgren. It's a shame that this very talented group of actors struggle with the very poor quality of the source material, this movie could have been so much better.
