The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
I went to see the newest adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – the first part of the Millenium trilogy written by the Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. To be honest, I haven’t read the books but I’m planning on reading them somewhere in the near future. So conclusively: I had no idea what to expect. I had read some interviews and a small summary (without spoilers) and I knew it was going to be a violent movie. And I was right. I have to admit, at some point I wish I hadn’t eaten all those winegums already, ’cause my stomach started to twist. But it was all worth it. I loved the setting of the movie – the brilliant landscapes of Sweden – and the actors too. Daniel Craig was just plain awesome and so was Rooney Mara. I couldn’t believe at first that this was the same girl who appeared in the opening scene of The Social Network, next to Jesse Eisenberg. I loved her style, seriously. I’m not going to give away anything about the plot – but if you’re into thriller/crime movies and you can handle a few violent scenes now and then, I highly reccomend this movie.
Also, I fell in love with the opening credits, which are shown above.
