English Subtitled Trailer For Arty Swedish Thriller CRESTFALLEN

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Just this past week I was reading an article in The New Yorker - the lady has better taste in reading than I do - arguing that a core factor in the export of Scandinavian thrillers is their abundance of strong, complex female characters. And it seems only fitting that on the heels of such a thing I have stumbled across an English subtitled trailer for Johan Lundh's upcoming Crestfallen (Den som söker).

When Tuva loses her parents in a car crash she is given the unenviable task of cleaning up their house. In a locked drawer in her father's study she finds some paperwork - it turns out that she is adopted. It's a shocking revelation that sets her out on a quest to find her birth mother. Small clues lead her and her young daughter to a small town in the middle of Sweden. It's there that things begin to unravel. Not only does Tova experience hostile resistance from the locals, but she repeatedly faces the eerie apparition of her dead teenage mother. And as she pushes closer to the truth about her past, the deeper she finds herself in grave danger. There are people in the town who need to stop her. For their sake, and, perhaps, for hers. Sometimes the truth bears evil tidings. Sometimes the truth is better left alone.
Josephine Bornebusch, Erik Johansson, Claes Ljungmark, Björn Granath, and Ingela Olssonstar in what looks to be a typically smart, classy affair. Check the trailer below.
