    ★★★½

    Really good psycho-thriller with awesome performances that may very well be Fabrice Du Welz's (Calvaire, Vinyan) best work. Based on the true story of The Lonely Hearts Killers (Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck) which was the basis of the cult classic The Honeymoon Killers.

How can you not appreciate a film, made in Norway, where a guy just happens to have a bucket of…
