Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.27.10] Finland movie trailer news drama

Before she makes her move to Hollywood and the craptacular machine that are Hollywood cut outs like MI4 & Sherlock Holmes 2, dragon tattooed girl Noomi Rapace has a few European titles in the works and the first to hit the international front is Svinalängorna (Beyond).

Directed by actress turned director Pernilla August and based on a best settling novel by Susanna Alakoski, Rapace leads the pack of great Finnish actors including Ville Virtanen (Sauna (review)) and Outi Mäenpää, as Leena, a woman who, on the morning of Christmas eve receives a phone call from the hospital of her childhood hometown explaining that her mother is dying, a call that brings up her dark childhood and leads her to seeing her mother for the first time in her adult life.

The trailer for the film is a little over dramatic (the music certainly doesn’t help though it builds a chilling mood), but it looks like a powerful drama. I’m rather surprised that it wasn’t picked by the TIFF programmers (especially with a name as attractive as Rapace's) from the ranks of Venice’s Critic’s Week. Hopefully this isn’t the last we see of this film.
