"The Beast" as it's called in English, is a stylishly filmed tale about a soldier who discovers that his innocent sister has been kidnapped by sex traffickers. The girl has ended up on a web cam sex site, and it becomes her brother's mission to find her, before it is too late. This theme has been dealt with many times before, and in a more effective way, so "Beast" won't earn any points for originality. And despite the subject matter, there is actually no sex or nudity in this movie. Still, it is a very decent, and entertaining thriller, with some impressive fight scenes. The photography has a certain cold, grey look, which somehow suits the story. The buildings, the clothing, the hairstyles, are all very modern and industrial, and the main actor is very extreme-looking, with nice, angular features and icy, emotionless eyes. This is not art, but it's better than most action films coming out of Hollywood these days..worth a watch.
