Good performances, slow and arid pacing
14 December 2013 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Films with intrigues related to death and passion usually enable character actors/actresses to show their talent in full - even if the plot leaves to be desired. This is also the case here, with Stockholm Östra, where Mikael Persbrandt and Iben Hjejle, above all, give convincing and profound performances. The script, however, has questionable moments, even when considering the events happening in modern world with Internet and yellow press included; behaviours of characters are logical, but expected, paving the way for trivial ending. General mood is oppressive and hectic, thus the film is not for everyone, but those fond of Persbrandt and Hjejle do not feel disappointed, although their roles here are not among the best ones.
