    ★★★½

    Kristine Kujath Thorp stjeler showet, med god hjelp av Bjørn Floberg, i god norsk katastrofefilm som skjærer ut i klisjeer og realismebrudd enkelte steder.

    Norsk film # 576. Film fra 2021 # 32.

    Rest in peace, Hank von Hell! Not the bravest of biopics and probably one that doesn't make the legacy of Vreeswijk just, but a decent performance from Dyvik Husby in a difficult period of his life (just after the Turbonegro exit). Vreeswijk died of sickness at 50, Dyvik Husby tragically only reached 49. His only other feature film was in "Los Bando" 8 years later.

    Horror med størk av sosialrealisme rundt boligblokkene på Romsås fra Eskil Vogt, antagelig den mest ubehagelige norske filmen som har vært i Cannes, med en veldig foruroligende stemning fra starten som bare bygger og bygger seg opp, godt hjulpet av et dirrende lydspor, Sturla Brandt Grøvlens perfeksjonerte foto og fire gode barneskuespillerne, særlig Rakel Leonora Fløttum i hovedrollen, Ola Fløttum (som har laget musikken til bl.a. Thelma) og Ellen Dorrit Petersens datter. Vogt bruker horror-grep, men holder tilbake og følger…
