No sympathetic characters - hard to engage in the story
15 July 2020 | by GrimmalkinSee all my reviews

It is thouroughly hard to sympathize with any of the characters in the movie. They are all doing stupid actions over and over again, in the sake of "lust". Many of the scenes are thouroughly unbeliveable in the way they are portrayed. Also, the nordic noir style of the movie seems unappropriate. The actors are doing a decent job with the material they are given, but when your actors are realistically representing unsympathetic characters, in a story that seems unrealistic, then it is hard to be engaged in what is happening.
