Tightly plotted, tautly wound thriller.
8 January 2003 | by CraigA23See all my reviews

I had no expectations at the start of this movie and reached the end impressed at its proficiency in the genre and the strong performances of its lead actors. Andrine Sæther is convincing as a woman whose life spirals drastically out of control as an initial mistake is compounded by a string of lies and deceptions. Bjørn Sundquist matches her as a tenacious and astute detective who gnaws away at the inconsistencies in her evidence. A tip of the hat also to writer/director Berit Nesheim for maintaining the narrative momentum and keeping us interested in the characters. Well worth your time.
