Nordic Cinema

Pernilla August's Söderberg adaptation with Mikkel Boe Følsgaard ('A Royal Affair') and Michael Nyqvist (the Millennium trilogy) is "a tale of ruinous extramarital passion, elevated by the film's visual restraint - a cool Nordic palette of creams and pale grays framed in Academy ratio."
