The Swedish unemployment has reached the criminal realms. We meet characters that have to fight for their lives in order to finish their work shift in one piece. An action satire of the Swedish labor market.
In this true crime satirical mockumentary, investigative journalist Hannah McMann attempts to solve a horrific crime committed by Sophia Noonan. The crime? She refuses a marriage proposal from her long-time boyfriend, Shawn.
A group of posh young men in a restaurant end up in a fight over who is the richest, which they try to demonstrate by wasting and destroying as expensive things as possible. The situation quickly derails.
In order to get the right light interaction from the helicopters at the end, VFX supervisor Jacob Danell flew a drone with a flashlight attached to it. The helicopters were added later in post production. See more »
Had no idea what the movie would be about so my expectations were none, but I was pleasantly surprised!
The love story falls a bit flat, and so does some of the acting (tragically mainly by the main characters), but for me the movie wasn't about the love story, but about how Sweden would handle a disaster. I'm not pro military, so I was surprised of how invested I was in the plot, and how uneasy and scared I felt watching this. I also think it really captures that realistic essence and atmosphere which I think Hollywood movies almost always lack. Since I don't know much about the military though, I can't speak for how much was ACTUALLY realistic in actions etc.
The soundtrack was not memorable in melody, but enhanced the movie experience a lot! It reminded me of the Interstellar soundtrack that I think is amazing.
The CGI is amazing. I never questioned it and didn't even reflect on it until I read the reviews here.
In short: great film that really targets that unsettling-nerve.
