I feel better thanks to this movie
18 January 2018 | by magda_butraSee all my reviews

Varg is going to Copenhagen in order to find Lisa (Julie Rustie), daughter of the local businessman, Peter Werner (Bjørn Willberg Andersen). The case is not finished with the moment of leaving Lisa at her parents' house. Werner neighbours' son Peder (Frank Kjosås) is missing and parents ask Varg to find the boy. Again we have a rich Norwegian family, problems with emotions, teenage rebellion, mafia, sex and drugs.

I am not the brightest bulb in the box. There are viewers which after one sentence or one scene scream that the servant killed the lord, when I am still thinking about ex-wife and present mother-in-law. Watching "Varg Veum" my ego feels better. But then it doesn't leave the movie with the greatest review. Because what kind of crime story it is, when an average spectator as me in the middle of the movie finds out who is the father and who is the killer? "Sleeping Beauty" is better in comparison with "Bitter flowers" in a sense that despite the fact that you know now everything, the tension is still there.
