A Week In Film #270: Vom City

Män Som Hatar Kvinnor (2010) title screen
Män Som Hatar Kvinnor AKA The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2010)
The original Swedish version of Stieg Larsson’s first part of the ‘Millennium’ book series works a lot better in this extended format. Niels Arden Oplev directs with stylish economy, Noomi Rypace and Michael Nyqvist are both excellent in the leads.

The Girl Who Played With Fire title screen
Flickan Som Lekte Med Elden AKA The Girl Who Played With Fire (2010)
Daniel Alfredson takes over directing duties, and it feels closer to distasteful sensationalism – but somehow it still works.

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest title screen
Luftslottet Som Sprängdes AKA The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets’ Nest (2010)
Alfredson again, and all building to a climax. The whole Swedish Cold War spookery stuff is interesting.
