I skuggan av värmen (direct translation: In the Shadow of the Warmth) is a beautiful movie that really tugs at the heartstrings. This movie takes up subjects such as addiction and love. It also teaches you that letting someone else help you doesn't mean that you're a failure, it just means that you're not alone.
Fantastic imagery, but it could also be confusing, maybe that was the art of it. I haven't really figured that one out yet. I found that the acting could be great and credible in some scenes and unrealistic in others. Depending on which situation the actors had to act in. But I'm not really sure if it had to do with them being bad actors, or if it just was a bad manuscript.
This movie will make your body ache until the very end when it will gradually start to heal. But there were still parts that were difficult to understand at first and you might need to see the movie a few times to fully understand it and to know what your genuine opinion is of it.

A touching and believable movie about a female heroin addict. Plot wise it's close to Margareth Olin's great "Engelen", but this flick is maybe slightly better. Malin Crepin does a fantastic role and Kinnaman does a great second lead. The cast give us the gripping story with true passion and it's a sad, lovely atmosphere here. The music is very fitting and does a lot for the complete impression in many scenes. Visually it's very cold, but also very beautiful.

The only thing that annoys me a little is the coincidences that happen. Of all the people in the city it's allways the two leads that bump into each other. Still, I found this movie superb, it's such an underrated gem, missed by many.

Malin Crepin has already given her very best & her delivery is really impressive & convincing. However it is all drab & uninteresting from story to narrative of this feature.

Faktiskt väldigt bra, om man inte jämför för mycket med boken, jag saknade några karaktärer och händelser därifrån, men istället var det andra scener tillagda. Mycket bra skådespelarinsatser. Diaglogen var väl lite så där emellanåt, men inget som störde. Väldigt snyggt filmat. En av de bättre svenska filmerna.
