The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, ruthless computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves. “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is based on the trilogy of books by Stieg Larsson and has sold over 7 million copies worldwide. Tragically, Larsson did not live to see the phenomenon his work has become as he died suddenly in 2004 soon after delivering the manuscripts to his Swedish publisher.
Starring: Michael Nyqvis, Noomi Rapace, Lena Endre, Peter Haber, Sven-Bertil Taube, Peter Andersson, Ingvar Hirdwall, and Marika Lagercrantz.
Directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
It may be saying something when Amazon is already out of stock on the Blu-Ray version of the film. What is part of the millennium trilogy, this acclaimed book-turn-into-film has been getting awesome reviews and is definitely worth checking out. Who doesn’t like a computer hacker dressed up as a punk chick. Anyway, the film is long and is subtitled, so if you have any of those are problem to you, try renting it. Try checking the film out before Hollywood does their own take on the trilogy, which is set to release next year.
