Based on the Swedish novel "Störst av allt" by Malin Persson Giolito. After a school shooting in Stockholm's wealthiest suburb Danderyd the seemingly normal 18 years old girl Maja is accused of murder. But during the trial details of her relationship with five other students, parents and a teacher are revealed. Is she really the murderer or just another victim?
One of the best non-english laguage series on Netflix!
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!
