När Mörkret Faller * Anders Nilsson (2006)

“When Darkness Falls” tells three stories that you may read about in the newspaper. The stories are cut up in pieces and presented through eachother. We have Nina a Turkish (?) girl whose family thinks she broke the family-honour. Another woman is Carina who is beaten by the man she loves and decides to act. Then there is Peter, a doorkeeper at a club who too roughly denies entry to a group he had no idea who they were. For all three, but also for the people close to them, things turn out to be a nightmare. Nina, and her sister Leyla who takes up for her, face the wrath of the family with is quite unbelievable. Carina decides to take a stand, but she has children, a sister, her colleagues who are also the colleagues of her husband and on top of all, her husband’s mother comes to visit. Peter transfers his problem to his boss Aram who faces a mercyless enemy.
“När Mörkret Faller” is an alright film with the stories behind newspaper articles and then of course taken to extremes.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
