I watched A Somewhat Gentle Man yesterday. It is a very interesting and fascinating movie. I don’t really know what to call it – it is a noir feel good, or a tragical comedy or perhaps a funny crime fiction. Something more or less like that.
A very original and strange movie, with the strangest group of characters I have seen in a long time and excellent dialogues. Stellan Skarsgård (or Skarsgaard) was magnificent – I think this was one his his best performances ever. He played the somewhat mundane, somewhat gentle, somewhat mild and well mannered murderer Ulrik to perfection. And his oh-so-unsexy sex scenes were so beautifully underplayed. Great job by director Hans Petter Moland too! The ending was very surprising and just right (see the full review of A Somewhat Gentle Man).
Here is the official trailer! Enjoy!
