This is the tag-line of much awaited new film from Pål Sletaune (behind
the great films "Naboer", "Amatørene" and "Budbringeren") is starring
Noomi Rapace and Kristoffer Joner. Seven years since "naboer" or in
English "next door", we get a film with similar ideas – a look into
disturbed or distorted minds.

Single mother Anna moves with her 8 year old son to a big flat with
secret address outside Oslo to get away from her violent husband. Anna
is scared stiff that they will be found, and is under heavy watch by a
couple of child care workers. She get's the idea of buying a baby call
so that her son doesn't have to sleep in her bed, only to find that the
baby call picks up another troubled child somewhere in the flat. Anna
is really on the edge, and maybe her imagination is playing her as
well!?

This psychological thriller goes under your skin in the sympathy for
Anna and the other troubled minds in this film. You want her to relax,
but still understand how difficult it is when you trust no one.

Really great play by Rapace. She gets under your skin. The film is slow
paced in a couple of periods, only to speed up at times, just as real
life would be in such a situation. The film is not like you think it
will be, so this is not your standard thriller. I still think I'd like
another ending to this, though maybe not happy…

Well Sletaune can put another great film under his belt. Always
worthwhile and interesting to get sucked into his stories. Well done!
