Storyline

Coleen,her sister,and Stefan,a young soldier arrested by the police after being seen covered in blood,give their accounts to camera of how the sisters met the visiting youth that afternoon and went back to the flat for drinks,an evening that got out of hand. As Coleen and Stefan are jointly charged with the murder other talking heads narrate the progress of the trial and the verdict,including the world-weary inspector in charge of the case, Coleen's sharp barrister and her discarded boyfriend H. After the jury has delivered their verdict the viewer is shown what really happened on the fateful night. Written by don @ minifie-1

Don't believe the hype
6 September 2012 | by LejinkSee all my reviews

Much hyped and anticipated as the first production by "The Killing" director Birgir Larsen in English, I must admit I was bitterly disappointed by it.

A prismatic narrative, similar to "Rashomon" and "Accident" in depicting a dramatic event from different perspectives, being the co-accused of the murder of a young girl after a drunken night goes wrong, the familiar Nordic Noir devices of unusual camera angles, well-lit city-scapes, new-age background music for atmosphere and naturalistic acting are rolled out again, but I was unmoved.

For one thing, I didn't care for the characters, low lives all of them and watching their tawdry doings was akin to viewing rats in a barrel. I didn't like the acting either, as if staring at the camera and talking in monotone can be called acting.

The denouement was underwhelming too, by which time anyway I was bored and couldn't care less. This programme was all flash and no content and was as entertaining as a dose of the measles.

How do you say "The Emperor's New Clothes" in Norwegian?
