Director: Pal Sletaune. Review: Adam Wing.
Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes) is certainly getting around a bit these days, and despite a move to all things Hollywood, it was her captivating breakout in the ‘Millennium Series’ trilogy that people will remember her for. Two years after she made a permanent impression as Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,' Rapace took on the role of Anna, in Pål Sletaune’s Norwegian thriller, Babycall.
Anna is a single mother given state protection following an abusive relationship. Terrified her ex will come back to find her and their son, Anders, she buys a baby monitor to keep track of him.
