>Salander Sunday

>
Film review: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Swedish DVD with Scandinavian subtitles.

An elderly man receives a mysterious parcel – a white flower in a frame. Immediately afterwards we meet Mikael Blomkvist in court where he receives his sentence for fraud and slandering, and next we see Lisbeth Salander in front of her computer, worming her way into Blomkvist´s life.

The first Stieg Larsson film has begun, and everybody leans back in the couch with mugs of coffee and plenty of candy on the table.

My husband´s opinion: Lisbeth Salander is a victim and she is tough, but she does not come across as someone with Asperger´s Syndrome. (He certainly has a point).

My opinion: a film version which is fairly loyal to Stieg Larsson´s story. Teeming with fine actors – an entertaining and appealing film, especially the scenes from Vanger´s little empire in Hedeby.

Salander-søndag.
Film-anmeldelse: Mænd som hader kvinder. Svensk DVD med skandinaviske undertekster.

En ældre mand modtager en mystisk pakke – en indrammet hvid blomst. Straks efter ser vi Mikael Blomkvist i retten, hvor han modtager sin dom for bagvaskelse, og derefter dukker Lisbeth Salander op foran sin computer, hvor hun er ved at hacke sig ind på Blomkvists liv.

Den første Stieg Larsson-film er begyndt, og vi læner os alle tilbage i sofaen med kaffe og masser af slik på bordet.

Min mands mening: Lisbeth Salander er et offer, og hun er skrap, men hun fremstår ikke som én med Aspergers syndrom. (Og det har han ret i).

Min mening: en film-version som er forholdsvis loyal over for Stieg Larssons historie. Den vrimler med gode skuespillerpræstationer – en underholdende og tiltalende film, især scenerne fra Vangers lille imperium i Hedeby.

[Og selvfølgelig så vi den lørdag aften – men lad være med at fortælle nogen, at jeg udsender gammelt nyt]
