I just saw the remake at the National Film Theatre last night. It is a pale imitation of this dark and wonderful film. Stellan Skarsgaard is magnificent, and the sooner Hollywood finds a decent role for him the better. Hollywood likes nice happy endings, everything neatly wrapped up, and instantly recognisable characters. This film lacks all of the above, which is what makes it so memorable. You don't know who's right, who's wrong, what ought to happen. A great film.
