Watched this in preparation for the remake with my boy Jakey G.
And add this to the list of movies with just perfect titles.
For a single setting film to be effective, it kind of has to be anxiety-inducing. And man did this fit that bill. So intense. The suspense and lack of reveals early on was perfect. The lead performance from Jakob Cedergren (& really the driver of most of what makes this movie work) was phenomenal.
As much as I love Jake Gyllenhaal, I’m definitely not expecting to like the remake more than this.
I need to do a better job of finding films from other countries like this. I only saw it because it’s being remade but this is a stellar film that deserves to be seen on its own accord. Also, who was he calling at the end?
