The UK newspaper The Guardian recently reviewed Babycall, a new movie set in Norway starring Noomi Rapace, the actress who so convincingly played Lisbeth Salander in the Scandinavian film versions of the Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy. Although it is showing in London cinemas, there is no U.S. release date yet set.
According to the review in The Guardian:
This intriguing Norwegian thriller stars the queen of the current Scandinavian crime wave, Noomi Rapace, who played the impressive, expressive, mercurial Lisbeth Salander in the film versions of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy. Here she’s Anna, a single mother brought by the authorities with her eight-year-old son Anders to hide from a violently abusive husband in an anonymous apartment block in suburban Oslo. A baby-monitoring device she buys to keep in touch with the disturbed Anders proves to be the first troubling straw when it picks up dangerous messages exchanged on similar walkie-talkies…How much of what happens is reality and how much paranoid delusion? The film and Rapace command our attention….
