Storyline

Allan is drowning his sorrow with yet another round of scotch, in the middle of the night. He's just been left by the love of his life. On the other side of town Martin is having a good time. He's enjoying playing around with Elina, a girl who is supposedly his girlfriend, but which he only uses for his own purposes and neglects. This girl loves him. And in the hospital of the same town an older man lays dreaming in bed of the woman he himself neglected, to her very own breaking point. This man is David, the father of Allan and Martin. David is having an heart-attack. And so, his sons are called to the hospital, and for the first time in a very long time, the three meet. These brothers both have their reasons to hate their father, but now it seems the father wants to make amends, and hopes to be forgiven. Not so easy for the brothers to do, however. It turns into a night the three of them will never forget, as they'll fight their past, their nightmares, and not at least themselves. Written by Linda Sandhammar

Excellent. Well Crafted. Lovingly made with obvious pieces of the Directors heart.
8 May 2014 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Quite often we see films that have a direct meaning at face value but can also mean something else to different people. This is one of those films. Too often do we take that for granted and fail to realise how much of an incredible thing and how difficult it actually is. Two brothers with lives completely opposite but neither brother is all they appear on the surface. A father who you aren't sure whether to hate or pity. Barracuda is a film made with heart and talent; two things that, when combined, pretty much guarantee a great film. This needs to be seen by everybody. Great actors, direction, cinematography, everything. I have absolutely no criticisms.
