Storyline

A decade ago, a medical student and a steelworker become pen-friends when they chance upon the same copy of Leo Tolstoy's "Resurrection". Off the page, passion and hatred mingle and two murders are committed, and the two friends part ways. A young police officer starts to investigate, but in vain. A decade later, the young graduate student has become a renowned doctor, and has married his sweetheart. The steelworker returns to the city, bringing with him his handicapped girlfriend. Meanwhile, the police officer can't shake off the unsolved mystery of the murder cases. The last ten years have brought with them great change, each of the characters falling deeper into webs of vice and desire. They must choose the path to salvation, or the road to hell.

Visual beautiful movie while the story can be difficult to follow.
7 March 2018 | by zolizolidus-35734See all my reviews

I watched this at the Göteborg Film festival in late January 2018 and its always a bit of a chance to pick up and watch a movie that almost noone have watched.

This is defines as neo noir in its style and if you enjoy a visual experience watching movies you will get something out of this movie.

The copy they showed at the festival the subtitles switched very quickly and for someone that may not be into that language that can be a bit diffucult to pick up everything.

I look forward to pick this movie up on Dvd when I get a chance to. There is plenty of visual cool scenes with delightful lightning that makes it worth checking this out.

In its visual expression it match up to bladerunner while this movie aint sci fi. Think film noir but with a more modern take to it.
