The inventive spelling of the title reads somewhat silly in Norwegian and Danish since the Ø in broken is a letter in the alphabet in these languages and sounds like the "u" in "burden". In addition "brøken" is the Norwegian and Danish word meaning "the fraction". See more »
Whenever it shows the car-wreck (and the replays thereof), the "person" in the driver-seat is obviously a dummy. See more »

You have conquered and I yield.
Yet henceforward art thou also dead - dead to the World, to Heaven, and to Hope!
In me didst thou exist - and, in my death, see by this image, which is thine own, how utterly thou hast murdered thyself.
Edgar Allan Poe

If the music played during the first half of the closing credits sounds a bit off, that's because it's being played backwards. See more »
Lionsgate released the DVD in North American with a cropped 1.78:1 ratio. This means approx 24 percent of the original composition is missing. The DVD release in European was in its original cinematic ratio of 2.35:1. Same cropping goes for the Scandinavian DVD and Blu-ray releases by Atlantic Film. See more »
This is an eerie little movie that isn't perfect, but is nicely shot using the lighting and sound well that creates a good atmosphere for the viewer. All classic horror movie shots are used to good affect, the London Underground, Mirrors, Bathroom scenes all with nods to classic horror films like Psycho and American Werewolf in London.
Lena Headey carries the movie well in a very different role from that she plays in Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles with good solid support, particularly from American actor Richard Jenkins as her father.
Watch this movie late at night, and I dare any of you to then go and look in the Mirror without thinking twice !!!
