Trivia

The script is based mainly on interviews with the persons involved in the original 2004 robbery, including a number of the convicted robbers. In order to interview the latter, screenwriter Christopher Grøndahl had to visit almost all larger prisons in Norway, as the convicted robbers were being held in separate institutions and constantly moved about for security reasons.

Respects the story it recreates
18 October 2016 | by peefynSee all my reviews

This movie is an interesting project, as it tries, more than anything else, to be accurate. Everything on location, local actors, following the actual events as closely as possible. This is not enough to make it a good movie, but it does make it interesting.

But this is more than any "TV-recreation", because it's obvious that director has a certain ambition here. The movie "Heat" is directly mentioned in this, as it distances itself from it. They wanted to go in a different direction, and they achieved it. Despite a lot of action, it never feels like an action movie.

But it's a challenge to make a movie telling a story from several perspectives at the same time, especially if you don't lend yourself the freedom to change the chronology up a bit to make it more exciting. This leads to the movie jumping back and forwards in time quite a bit. It never really gets confusing, but the solution is not ideal.

While much of the acting is good, there are certain deliveries of dialogue that takes you our of the experience. But considering the project, it's worth going for the local actors.
