A Brilliant Norwegian Noir
11 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

This movies style is like taken directly out of the German expressionism movement from the 20's and 30's mixed with the feel of Vitory De Sica's realism. These two art form mix graciously together and form a expression not too far away from the American Film Noir were the German expressionism is mixed with their more traditional crime genre. This cold yet on many levels heartbreaking film captures Norway perfectly and is not shy on showing my beautiful country around. You will also go into the minds of two criminals who have had their part in a murder and you will grow to feel for them, though perhaps still not like them.

I recommend this film to everyone who might have a taste for something a little different from the common noir and to every Norwegian who wants to see one of the best films we ever gave out.

My rating is 9.5/10, leaning towards 9 but still a 9.5. Now I'm a huge film buff with a taste for quality so I hope you will take my word for it : )

P.S. If I made any spelling mistakes it's because English is not my first language, as you might have understood I'm from and also currently living in Norway so do not let any mistakes pull my credibility down.

Thanks for listening/reading : )
