Andreaskorset by Norwegian director Martin Asphaug is a different thriller well worth a watch. Ashaig has directed quite a handful of films both in Norway and Sweden. Script is by Eirik Ildahl, which wrote the brilliant dark crime comedy "Haed above water". (Filmed in both Norway and remade in Hollywood.)
Andreas has everything. Driving home from his good job to a house out in the countryside to meet up with his wife, it all goes wrong while they have phone-sex. Andreas drives his Audi TT off the road, which makes him paralyzed from the waste down. Along comes Wagner to fix the house so that Andreas still can live there, but Wagner is just not only the helping hand, but has another reason for being there.
This thriller is different and lingering in the beginning, but all the way it keeps your interest. Slowly it moves towards a much faster paced rhythm. Trond Fause Aurvåg plays as always great, here followed by Stine Varvin as the wife, and Finnish actor Svante Martin as Wagner. We also meet Sverre Anker Ousdal as the father Andreas never had.
I like the film a lot, but I think it's too slow after the great opening. A couple of things might be a bit unrealistic, but it's still a movie well worth watching.
