Starkly, bleakly, brutally brilliant...
26 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This hour-long film was first shown at 10pm on BBC2 on Sunday 26th August. It was this particular broadcast that I caught to watch this finely crafted, impeccably acted and thoroughly unsettling drama. The film's director is Birger Larsen, who fans of Danish crime shows might remember as having directed the first few episodes of the first series of the classic "Forbrydelsen" (The Killing), as well as some of "Those Who Kill" (less of a classic, but no less engrossing). With him at the helm, "Murder" is imbued with a hefty Scandi-esque gloom, whilst also accompanied with an extraordinary visual style that far exceeds its small screen confines, but works just as well within them: night-time cityscapes aglow in neon become overcast in clouds the colour of blood; flashbacks are shown as if shot in grainy 8mm; and, most at the forefront of the visual style, is the fact that all the characters relay events to camera, directly to us. They use this to-camera style as an opportunity to give their side of the convoluted, complex and disturbing story that unfolds before us...even if not all the points of view match up...and even if some of the characters happen to not be telling the whole truth. In the end, your sympathies, opinions, predictions and - most crucially - your trust become tested at every turn. Now, in a way, "Murder" reminded me of the outstanding Japanese film "Confessions", which is no bad thing. I won't explain how. It's best left for you to find out, and discover exactly why. The two lead actors deserve a special mention, too: Joe Dempsie (great in "Game of Thrones," brilliant in "The Fades") plays a man seemingly destined for unending pain and injustice, whether he's dealing it out himself, or receiving it in kind. And as for Karla Crome, who plays the sister of the victim (though not necessarily the only one) of the story? My lord, if she does not get the golden future in acting she so utterly deserves, I will eat my hat AND my shoe. Before "Murder," I saw her in the also quite brilliant (but totally mental) "Hit & Miss", and with her performance in that and in this to go on, I must paraphrase Ollivander and say that we can expect great things from you, Ms. Crome...
