A good movie

7 years, 3 months ago at Aug 2 8:38
I remember it very well, since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out.  The other reason was probably the fact I really enjoyed the remake directed by Christopher Nolan so I was rather curious about this original version. Eventually,  I'm not sure which version I prefer between this movie and the US remake. Indeed, even though the plot was obvi... read more

"15.6. (Yle Areena) Nyt osui! Nimittäin Stellan omaa kollegaansa. Nolan teki tästä hyvä uusintaversion, jolle olen näköjään antanut 4 tähteä. Se tuskin saisi uusintakatselulla niin kovia pojoja, koska olen nykyään kyynisempi. Kyynisyydestä puheen ollen: Insomnia on sellainen. Siinä on todella karu meininki heti alusta asti. Elokuva käsittelee onnistuneesti syntiä, syyllisyyttä ja siihen liittyviä polttopisteitä. Roolitus on kautta linjan hoidettu hyvin ja silmukka alkaa kirist"

" A superior Nordic Crime movie noir where dark crimes and evil deeds are bathed in white light not darkness. It has a realistic feel to it and great atmospheric moments like the "trapped in the fog with a killer" moment and when a dead man returns to the hero in the hotel room. I also like the poetic outcome for the killer. Stellan Skarsgård also deliver one of his more powerful moments and is believable as a cop who tries wipe his hands clean after doing a huge mistake in the line of duty. "
