"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

THE RIVER

Nordic noir fans will love this crime drama based on true events. In the quiet and remote village of Djupelv — the region bordering Russia in northern Scandinavia — winters are long and dark. Everyone knows everyone and there are no secrets in this close-knit community…or so it seems.

During one of NATO’S winter exercises, seven-year-old Silja finds a severed arm while out playing near the river. Less than 24 hours later, Silja mysteriously disappears. New to the village, police officer Thomas Lønnhøiden begins an investigation into Silja’s disappearance — despite firm warnings from his superiors. He soon suspects that the close-knit community is hiding dark and dangerous secrets. Why are the authorities passive? Why are the locals staying so tight-lipped? And what is hidden up there in the mountains?

Norwegian with English subtitles.
