"Honor among thieves"
13 August 2016 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

The movie 'Tjuvheder' has received great reviews in the media - with good reason. A rough and authentic portrayal of the lower depths of society. Definitely among the most realistic I've seen. Translated to English the Swedish title means "Honor Among Thieves" - which can be understood as: the concept that criminals do not compromise the activities of other criminals. It can also mean that even corrupt or criminal individuals can possess some form of honor, justice, or moral code. The movie questions this honor in an excellent way.

The performances are so brilliant, it makes you question whether it's really acting. Several of the actors has lived, or are still living, this life for real - a factor which probably has contributed to making them so great at portraying their roles. The characters are whole, with both gruesome and charming sides. The same goes for the community among them. The movie captured my attention from beginning to end, and will probably capture yours too.

'Tjuvheder' has my highest recommendation. I hope it will be seen by a wide audience.
