it''ll turn you around
21 February 2007 | by dlbrSee all my reviews

i bumped on this film totally by accident.in fact my girlfriend found it on the shelf of a place where we rent DVD-s. So i didn't had any big expectations on this movie.i watched only Drowning ghost of Norge films.And this one turned out to be a really nice surprise and spent 75 minutes expecting the expected ending.But this one is a psychological roller-coaster that turns you for 180 degrees and you can just stand paralyzed in the end thinking what happened to the nice boy.Excellent acting all.Bravo!!!Scandinavian film producers should definitely try to keep the good work and we expect many great movies.A big relief from all those Hollywood 1ooooooooooooo million budget plastic movies(not all are). if you love this kind of flicks take some time watch this one.
