Storyline

Two young sisters act against their family's "code of honour" and their lives become a deadly nightmare. Two bouncers at a popular club are attacked by criminals igniting total war. An award winning journalist presses charges of spousal abuse against her husband only to become a hated pariah amongst their common colleagues. But what none of their aggressors could have foreseen is the enormous will to fight and prevail that is awaked in the hearts of those threatened one time too many.

Wow!
14 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I just finished this movie, and I just have to say one word, Wow! I have never in my life been so touched by a movie before.

Meet a story who combines three families problems into one, and follow their path through a dark time, a time who takes place in our society. Is the path so lined with mortality that it only can lead to one possible goal, death, or will we see a happy ending?

"När mörkret faller" (english translation "When darkness falls") brings up a lot of questions concerning the Swedish law system, how it fails to help those who really needs to be taken seriously. Domestic abuse, honor killing, assault and death threats are just some of the main topics of the movie. They are all hot topics and worth a great discussion, and I really hope that this movie will start one.

The director has successfully created a mind blowing storyline, which keeps you nailed at the TV-screen, the cut scenes are just in perfect balance and has the right transition. It also contains many hidden messages and ethics, and behind all that cruel and disturbing violence and darkness, you can eventually spot a little light...

...it's time for some changes in our society.
