"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriets disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
The film starts with establishing the background of the movie, creating the foundation for Michael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. It maybe a little boring bur don't miss out on details or else you'll regret being confused in the latter part of the film. Anyhow one the film's done establishing the characters, it then started to accelerate that you can't help but be glued to the movie screen to never miss out on any detail or any information. You'll be catered to an investigative/detective search for the young girl Harriet who has been lost for 40 years.I don't need to mention the cold background, the "no talking to each other" family and even the media war behind because the investigation and the search is enough to satisfy the eyes. You'll continue asking who? what happened? and even near then end when you thought that's it you'd end up asking WHAT!!!???!?!?!
Such a titillating story that can make you wonder up to the end.
Noomi Rapace may not be the winner especially with big names against her nevertheless, her presence and character is evident in every scene of the film. It's amazing to know she was able to portrayu a very difficult character indeed.
If you're ready for mind blowing search, then this movie is for you!
