Trivia

Thursday, August 23, 1973 was an otherwise ordinary late summer day in Stockholm, Sweden. At 10.03 AM, a masked robber stepped into Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg in Stockholm. It was the beginning of one of the most internationally recognized crimes in history. Waving a submachine gun, bank robber Janne Olsson shouted orders in English, telling people in the bank to lie down on the floor, while also firing his gun towards the ceiling. In the commotion, a bank official still managed to reach the button for the silent alarm. See more »

Goofs

The massive television set in the prime minister's office is American along with the electric points. European television sets don't have trims covering the edge of cathode tubes as American versions do. The rabbit ear antennae are very rarely used in Europe and contrary to the prime minister's office which would use the big rooftop antennae. The electric points in Sweden are Type C European (CEE 7/16 Europlug) or Type F German (CEE 7/4 Schuko). See more »

Fun and exciting film!
19 April 2019 | by sarahdrewrySee all my reviews

There's something so amazing about a film that can keep you on your toes with it's fast-paced action and consistently funny antics as "Stockholm" does. Despite being a known true story of the origin of Stockholm Syndrome, the film was able to make me excited to see what happened next as it captivated me through well-written dialogue and incredible characterization of the few main characters. After watching this film and mediating on it for a while, I was struck by the fact that director Robert Budreau was able to perfectly capture the essence of the syndrome, even making me root for the captor, Lars Nystrom (Ethan Hawke), as the film progressed. I found it so interesting that the Budreau was able to do this with every detail, right down to the music. The music was easy to listen to being upbeat and chill, completely counteractive to the action on the screen but perfectly fitting to the character of Nystrom. The cinematography used in the film also helped develop this reaction as each scene was filmed to masterfully capture the emotion meant to be felt using dark versus light lighting and muted versus bright colors as they developed throughout the film, paralleling the unfolding character of Nystrom. This film was interesting and all in all wonderful to watch; I highly suggest you take the time to see it.
