Another Scandinavian Gem
8 June 2011 | by longorangeSee all my reviews

Really good film I caught late one night on SBS television in Australia. Was flicking around and randomly saw this was about to start. Having just watched 'Let the Right One In' I thought I'd give another Scandinavian film a shot. So glad I did.

A genuine thriller that deals with some pretty unsavoury themes. The lead actor gives a great performance, as do the neighbour and his best friend Jørgen.

Also thought the final few shots of the film were fantastic. Great filmmaking. No words, but they told so much. Definitely give this one a try!
