Yesterday I saw Autumn Blood at the Stockholm Film Festival. I am not sure where to start. This film took me by surprise. It started out poetic, beautiful, engaging and lured me with almost hypnotic power into a state of childlike emotional comfort. And the suddenly the world of the children was turned upside down. I found myself fearing for them, crying from anger about the cruelty they had to endure. Skarsgard and Stormare have never been more scary on the screen. Ther was no need for dialog, and the silence was almost unbearable. It was amazing to see how strong those kids could be, and the ending was unexpected and rewarding. Swedish actors at their Best!
