Engström was originally written as a Norwegian. His nationality was changed to Swedish to reflect Stellan Skarsgård's country of origin. See more »
When Jonas takes Frøya to the dump to see where Tanja was found, the site is so very tidy. No flies, the bones are not oxidized nor discolored, and everything looks staged. Dumps usually have a nasty smell and the actors do not seem to notice much of an odor. See more »
We saw this film when it first came out & we loved it. Last Sunday (5/26/02) we saw the new remake, & Monday we watched this version again on video. Wow! If you ever need an example of how Hollywood can take a classic & really trash it up, here's your case study. Everything about the new Christoper Nolan film looks totally cheesy when compared to Skjoldbjaerg's spare and completely original vision.
