More thrilling than a thriller.
21 September 2008 | by kristus-2See all my reviews

I watched this movie, expecting it to be a bit droning. And while it's not a fast action movie by any means, I felt so strongly for the main characters in the movie, that every second of the tough scenes were very hard to endure. Hence my summary, "more thrilling than a thriller".

It's a very good movie in my opinion. Showing two sides of a modern Swedish conflict.

Stormare was of course excellent in his role. But a lot of kudos to Robin Lundberg who played Nejla, showing off a young man who finds himself in deeper water than he can handle. As previously stated by other comments, the movie is very beautiful, and you can almost smell the cold air from the snowy mountains. I don't quite know how to formulate this movie, other than I loved every second of it.
