Young brothers Tom and Benjamin travel to Sweden to spend their vacation with their estranged father, who they have barely seen since their parents divorced. Tom, the younger of the two, has a premonition that something bad will happen. Their strange and solitary father, who is unable to sleep, insists that Tom, like him, has a gift for feeling things which aren’t quite normal. Tom’s frightening visions set the stage for the bizarre and terrifying events to follow, when the three head to a house in a vast remote forest.
A would-be standard personal haunting story is absolutely ruined by the “dad”‘s “no-go” or as the Americans would say, “inner-city ghetto” accent … which completely clashes with everything else. The development is too slow, and the whole “excentric” behavior of the father would have him gotten in jail and his children to the Barnevernet (the swedish Child Protection Services) in no time, something this movie’s French producer had visibly no concept of.
Avoid, unless you’re not a native French speaker, not a Scandinavian, or that you just want to enjoy some Swedish nature shots.
