AboutThe excellent book "Millennium: Men Who Hate Women" by a Swedish journalist served his countrymen to create a film image, which in the country on the Vistula River did not gain popularity and was swept through the cinema repertories without much echo. It's a pity. When I found out about the existence of the book, I put off watching the movie to read it. It was worth it.
Over six hundred pages of novel cover up in a few hours and nothing can tear your eyes and attention from the pages of the book. Immediately after the literary version, the time has come for a film story about finding a solution to a riddle from before forty years. The undeniable strength of the film is its infiltration. The specific detective duo created by the discredited journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the sociopathic hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lead the viewer a dark path to discover the shocking secret of the Vanger family. techboss is dark and pessimistic.
The late author of the trilogy, Stieg Larsson, has shown a brutal world full of ruthlessness, hatred and cruelty, the aim of which is only to satisfy animal instincts among members of a civilized society. Larsson showed the darkest side of the human soul in such a direct and pictorial way that the reader shivers pass on his back while reading. The director, Niels Arden Oplev, perfectly felt the atmosphere of the novel and faithfully gave it to the screen, but allowed himself to make small changes in the story. It did not happen without a few mistakes, but it did not affect the whole, which essentially reflects the character of the literary original. His second merit is the perfect selection of actors. The film world is far from highly aesthetic pictures from overseas, there are no plastic heroes who focus mainly on looking and showing themselves, not playing. The viewer's attention focuses on the plot and emotions that are not lacking in the first part of the trilogy. The book is an absolute bestseller, engaging from the first to the last page. The film lasting almost two and a half hours does not bore, does not contain unnecessary scenes, is well filmed, well set in dark landscapes, supported by good, atmospheric music. However, it is not sensational, or at least as sensational as a novel. Extremely flattering opinion about the production of Niels Arden Oplev is rather the admiration of the book transferred to the film. Was filmed as well as I could, deserves all praise, but first I recommend a literary trilogy, then the film. And this is only for the more demanding viewers. .
