One of the best non-english laguage series on Netflix!
10 April 2019 | by johanssonvSee all my reviews

I very rarely cry over a movie/tv-series but Quicksand managed to captivate me and keep me on edge for the whole 6 episodes.

Acting (especially the lead and the lawyer) are spot on. So is the cinematography and editing. The latter is used to slowly build up a clearer picture of what actually happened in the classroom and run parallel to the story that lead up to it.

As to adress some of the reviews mentioning "plot holes" or "bad acting". DO NOT watch this with a voice over... Also, do not underestimate what PTSD can do to short term memory of an extremely traumatic event. Or how naive a young person can be in the hands of someone manipulative...

This is a must watch!
