"Modestly romantic, historic and riveting..."
12 July 2013 | by SindreKaspersenSee all my reviews

Swedish screenwriter and director Per Hanefjord's second feature film which was written by Swedish screenwriter Maria Karlsson, is an adaptation of a novel by Swedish author Camilla Läckberg called "The Hidden Child" from 2007. It premiered in Sweden, was shot on locations in Sweden and is a Swedish production which was produced by producers Helena Danielsson and Pontus Sjöman. It tells the story about an author named Erica Falck who after having moved in to her parents' home with her husband named Patrik who is a police officer and their newborn child is visited by a man named Göran who claims to be her brother. Erica doesn't quite know what to make out of the visit, but then she finds a diary and a Nazi medallion in her mother's room.

Finely and engagingly directed by Swedish filmmaker Per Hanefjord, this fast-paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws a throughout involving portrayal of a Swedish woman who after learning that she might have a brother whom she has never known about begins to examine her mother's past. While notable for its naturalistic milieu depictions, fine cinematography by cinematographer Marek Wieser and production design by Swedish production designer and costume designer Eva Norén, this character-driven and narrative-driven story about identity, war children and Norwegian and German war crimes depicts several interrelated studies of character and contains a timely score by Swedish composer Magnus Jarlbo.

This conversational, literary and atmospheric drama which is set in Sweden and Norway during the 20th and 21st century and where a newly mother's involvement in a murder investigation and search for her family origins leads her into a deeper knowledge of what happened at Grini concentration camp in Norway and Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany during the Second World War, is impelled and reinforced by its fragmented narrative structure, subtle character development, secretive characters, prominent flashback scenes and the fine acting performances by Swedish actress Claudia Galli Concha, Swedish actress Inga Landgré, Swedish actor Jan Malmsjö and Norwegian actor Jakob Oftebro. A modestly romantic, historic and riveting thriller.
