Bleak, Depressing…Nordic

InABetterWorldI watched “In a Better World” this afternoon, based on nothing more than the hope for some of the drama I’ve enjoyed in The Killing and The Bridge.

It was not exactly what I’d hoped for.

While gripping and incredibly well made, it was possibly the grimmest and most depressing thing I’ve seen in quite some while. If like me, you like all things Nordic, then definitely give it a go.

But if you’re feeling even a little sad…a little off your usual cheery self… wait until you’re feeling better. Otherwise this film might just push you over the edge into a very, very dark place.
