When Maja walks to the neighbor's house to fetch Patrick, Stuart's mother says she promised to take them to the movies. Maja asked what's playing. Stuart's mother says 'Sleeping Beauty' (1959), which opened in wide release (other than premieres) 25 December 1959, and would not be exhibited during the time frame of this story. See more »
We can release him. He won't go to the police. We can get out of this, Maja. Get our lives back to normal.
My life will never be normal.

Lots of twits on here recommending Death of the Maiden, as an alternative to this, which is quite frankly ridiculous. Since when does an idea have to be completely original or uncharted to be given a screen rendition.
This film is pretty damn good, its an intriguing thriller filled with suspense good acting, direction, a great cast and a lead who is totally immersed in the role. I mean the story is good if a little slow and lacking in those high tension events that really bring suspense to the fore, but Rapace really carries this one with an outstanding performance.
I loved it, and even though I only gave it a 7/10 I still think its one I could watch a couple more times.
I do think there were some lost opportunities for events to escalate or for incidents to really take on a little more action, but I'm probably nit picking.
Really enjoyed it. Watch it
