Real about a suspected rapist
Rape, or in Norwegian Voldtekt, is acclaimed Anja Breien's second feature film, and the film made before her critically acclaimed Wives(Hustruer), and really shows why she grew to be one of the most known female Norwegian film makers.
Rape tells how 22 year old Anders Bakken, a youngster with an unstable backround, is suspected to be behind a rape, and another attempt, seemingly done by the same perpetrator.
Anders finds himself in a process he can't get out of, claiming his innocense. The trail process is very real, using real and well known laywers as actors in court.
The film is holding qualities which I find good, and you also feel the helplessness of the process.
Acting is superb, and Svein Sturla Hugnes is very good in the main role. The lawyers impress as actors, as well.
