Sonet Film official synopsis
The Swedish title is translated into 'When darkness falls' and this is actually the best movie of 2006 so far.
I feel that this movie from start to finish is in a big hurry to tell us about extremely important problems in todays society, and it manages to come through in flying colors. The movie is two hours and 15 minutes long, but the pace is high throughout the entire movie.
Certainly not a light weight family movie, the story is a bit like Altman's 'Shortcuts', about people that could be your next door neighbor, your closest friend, or you yourself. People that for different reasons are in serious trouble. It's a violent, dark, yet truly heartbreaking story. Although light years away from the lives of the average Swedish families, it presents realistic insights into the terrors that lurks 'when darkness falls'.
