Harsh and unforgiving.
Trapped and pursued deep in the backcountry, their dog eviscerated and their own lives in constant danger thanks to largely-unseen enemies, the couple in this Swedish thriller can do little but run, and pray.
At first, they think their predicament is a tale as old as time — city folks piss off country folk, then get their nasty comeuppance — but there’s much more at stake here.
Carefully keeping a major revelation hidden until after the halfway point, director Alain Darborg keeps us guessing.
Then, he drops the hammer in one of the more emotionally-brutal finales in recent memory.
