In Norwegian. 116 minute running time but lots of credits … probably still ten minutes too long, which I could have skillfully cut to get it to the sacred 100 minute mark if I were the editor … nevertheless, I liked this one.
Witchcraft, demonic possession, lesbian love, religious fundamentalism, psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, repressed memories, beautiful Scandinavian actresses, it has it all … and it’s a well-crafted thriller … recommended! A rare green rating from the Chairman.
(David Edelstein wrote that it’s like “Carrie remade by Ingmar Bergman,” which made me laugh.)
