Storyline

The life of Krister has become an unending nightmare, ever since his wife's death. There seems to be no respite for this man, tormented by the errors of his past and held prisoner by a grim daily existence. Not only must he raise his newborn child alone, he must also contend with the mood swings of his older daughter Sandra, a rebellious youth harbouring deep animosity towards her father, blaming him for all the ills that have befallen the family. Faced with such difficult circumstances, Krister is slowly losing his grip on himself, which threatens the teaching career he exhibits a waning interest in. The mental health of this damaged man is deteriorating and those around him have reason to be concerned. Especially because, for some time now, Krister has been plagued by night terrors, his fitful slumber intruded upon by a mysterious woman with dark designs on him. He initially believes these visions are a symptom of serious post-traumatic shock. Krister does, after all, have a number ... Written by Anonymous

The scariest part was the acting
3 June 2012 | by matti-vxSee all my reviews

After seeing an online review which compared this film to Mulholland Drive (my favourite film) and the work of Stanley Kubrick, I was naturally interested. Upon seeing it, I think Lynch and the Kubrick estate should sue whoever wrote that.

Without a doubt, the worst thing about Marianne was the acting. In places it was just bad, in others it was so bad we actually started laughing, which I'm pretty sure wasn't intentional. Even Peter Stormare, an otherwise extremely confident actor, didn't seem to be trying his hardest. It may not have been solely the fault of the actors however, as the dialogue was extremely stilted and unnatural.

Since the release of the brilliant F**king Åmål (Show me Love), it has become almost obligatory for Swedish teenagers in film to be moody, rude and rather volatile - and Marianne proves to be no exception - although in this film, the teenage daughter's character is so over-done that it borders on the comical. (Though I do wonder if all teenagers in this country are really like that, ha-ha!)

The general idea for the film, with its basis in Swedish folklore was very interesting, and a subject which has not been covered so widely in film! Unfortunately, the whole project was so badly executed that it would be more entertaining to read a Wikipedia article about the topics covered.
