Better than its title
19 June 2015 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Daniel Alfredson's 'Echoes from the Dead' may have a boringly generic name, but it's actually quite good, a slow-burning thoughtful story of the attempt of an old man and his daughter to finally lay to rest a tragedy from their past. It's unusual to watch a film where the youngest of the main cast are middle-aged but the actors have no problems in carrying off the story. There's something of the flavour that you can get when watching 'Wallander', of a modern Sweden where the trappings of the consumerist society are layered quite thinly on a harsher, more primitive, style of life. The only thing that doesn't quite work is the tale's conclusion, which requires some oddly out-of-character behaviour by one of the participants.
