Storyline

Rebekka's beloved younger sister has just committed suicide. Grieving, angry and seeking justice, with nothing but a kitchen knife in hand, she drives off to a tranquil waterfront hotel deep in the fjords of Western Norway. The very hotel, where of her sister's assailant currently resides. Murder on her mind, she arrives under a false identity, a journalist for a travel magazine. She receives a hearty welcome from the man and his wife. Shortly into her stay, she corners the man alone, and has her chance to kill him, but her courage fails her. Changing strategy, she decides that stripping him from everything that matters; his family, and most importantly his social status is an even greater punishment. Weaving her plan slowly, like a lone cowboy she rides into town seeking her kind of justice, and when she rides back out, left behind is a destroyed man and a village in chaos and justice in her heart.

Tense and realistic tale of retribution
22 December 2017 | by OJTSee all my reviews

Revenge (original Norwegian title Hevn) is a rape revenge flick based upon Ingvar Ambjørnsen-novel "Dukken i taket", and the debut feature of film maker Kjersti G. Steinsbø.

Under false identity Rebekka takes in at an idyllic small country hotel by the Norwegian fjords. Saying she is a travel correspondent, she is taken in as a queen. but she has false pretentions. She is seeking revenge of her sister's rape back when she was thirteen years old. She is ready to ruin the perpetrators life. How far is she willing to go?

The film has many strong points, not only the breath taking western Norwegian nature, but also the tension which builds up slowly. I liked it, still the film is afr from being a perfect revenge flick. Difficult to point out what's not making the mark, but if you are patient, you'll get your reward.
