Apparently realistic, but unevenly accomplished
24 April 2013 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Blodsbånd is largely based on contrasts and sympathy for immigration, particularly when a small boy is included (splendidly performed by Nazif Muarremi). It is obvious that life is hard in Kosovo, one of the poorest countries in Europe, but I am sure that many viewers are perplexed that even in Norway (very rich place) life can be even harder - at least for certain people, coming from regions where vendetta or similar are customary. However, the plot is hectic, supporting actors are not catchy and the tensions come and go in a peculiar way. The ending is unrealistic as well, especially having Scandinavian social services in mind... I was not bored, but when the credits appeared, I just shrugged my shoulders - Scandinavia, incl. Norway, has made much stronger films on similar topic.
