User Review

Come on! 7.7?

Rating: 10/10


I just saw "Ondskan" and I have to admit: It's one of the best films
I've ever seen. I own approx. 200 DVDs and this is among the 5 best,
without doubt. I also gave it a ten at the vote. What I don't
understand is why the majority of voters have given this movie a 7.
With an average of 7.7 that almost the same as "Secondhand Lions" on
7.4 – and that sucked(at least compared to this Oscar-nominated film).
Maybe the reason it's so low is because the movie is made in a foreign
language, so the American or non-Scandinavian speaking people won't
understand all the points. This could very well be it. I just want
future viewers of this IMDb-profile to know that there are others who
also disagree on the grade given. And please reply to my comment if you
agree.
