Olle Sarri, who plays the main character, was not allowed to read the script before filming. The movie was shot in chronological order, with Sarri coming to the set every day without having the slightest idea what was going to happen. Also, everyone in the film team was instructed not to talk to Sarri, isolating him from the crew, making sure that nobody gave away hints about the story. See more »
Dark, improvised, well played that will stay in your head
This is not the regular movie. Not in any way.
Some other review i read here, should add SPOILER on top, since some talk about the ending of the movie.
A man wakes up bloody, we don't know why or what has happened to him. He washes off and go to work. During the day we find out what has happened.
And this is hurtful to know as a viewer of the movie. Its painful and dark.
Olle Sarri, who in Sweden otherwise is known as a comedian working on television does in this movie a remarkable appearance as the ape. And why this is, is probably cause the character was mostly improvised. Some parts of the character were of course written down, but i know Sarri got a lot of freedom to create the character on set.
I have seen this movie several times. The first time i wondered what crap this was. But as someone said, the movie does not leave your head. I watched it again (knowing the whole plot), and i liked the movie.
Now i love the movie, and have seen it several times.
