Strong and Simple
27 April 2008 | by SkruttanSee all my reviews

The first thing you notice with this film is that it is very beautifully filmed and has very strong music. Then you see Stormare do, probably one of his best roles in his career.

The story is simple, about a man and his nephew living in northern Sweden, driving snow scooters and living next to the rein deers. One night a wolf(varg in Swedish) kills a few of the rein deers and the hunt begins.

This movie is a simple but very strong movie about loyalty and Stormare is partly why you want too see this film. But you can also see it because it is a beautiful bit of Swedish film.
