shelby’s review published on Letterboxd :
for the majority of this film i was just on eDGE, knowing that something was going to happen, but just having no idea when. i cant imagine how i’d possibly live in this town in real life, holy shit. the cinematography and audio of the whole thing made it 100x scarier, and made me feel every emotion possible to feel. the film was full of selfless, brave characters, whom i have nothing in common with, which became clear when i was having to hold back from yelling at them on my screen every 5 minutes. by the end, i was sobbing my eyes out, so if you’re interested in watching, BRING SOME TISSUES!
in summary, ‘Bølgen’ was fantastically made, and really knew how to make me emotional.
