Crime Thriller Drama - This crime thriller from Sweden is in a number of languages--Swedish,
Spanish, Serbian, and a little English--and has as its lead a
familiar face for American TV viewers, Joel Kinnaman of The
Killing. While dark and violent, this crime thriller is more of
a slow-moving drama than an action film. Language, violence, and sex
make the film inappropriate for children. Those with a taste for
gritty foreign fare are the target audience.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 6 S-words; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Bloody shootings and beatings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine. ACTION: Shootouts and chasing. COMEDY: None.
Lower-class business student JW (Joel Kinnaman) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm's wealthy elite. To keep up the facade of his lifestyle, he's lured into a world of crime. Jorge is a petty fugitive on the run from both the police and Serbian mafia. He hopes that brokering a massive cocaine deal will allow him to escape for good. Mafia enforcer Mrado is on the hunt for Jorge, but his efforts are complicated when he's unexpectedly saddled with caring for his young daughter. As JW's journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organized crime, the fate of all three men becomes entangled and ends with a dramatic struggle for life and death.
