The scene in which DD enters a huge room full of computers, and talks to a guy who plays a computer game called "Storm", was shot in November 2004 on the world's largest computer festival, "Dreamhack", arranged every year in Sweden with over 6000 participants. Director Björn Stein thought that the festival would act as a cool and spectacular environment that would fit perfectly into the film. See more »

Highly entertaining, visually satisfying film. I hadn't heard too much about this film, so was extremely surprised with how much I enjoyed it. I did some research afterward, and came to find that the film has won numerous awards, including the Audience Award at the Stockholm Film Festival, and recently nabbed the top prize at the Amsterdam International Film Festival. Solid acting, intriguing story, and great direction power this very unique film. Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein (the writing/directing team) do a fabulous job with the visuals, they keep the action fun, and tie it all up nicely at the conclusion. This film deserves much more recognition.
