A year or so ago I commented upon how good the film Let the right one in”was, compared to a few other films around at the time. Just heard that the U.S are to make a version…oh no!
My bet is they will, totally, miss the emotional aspect of the bond between the two characters and concentrate on the gore factor, or introduce a formulaic romance sub-plot, whatever, they will ruin it. Come up with something new, stop ripping off European classics.
On a similar point. Got to say that the Swedish version of Wallander is far superior to the Branagh U.K version. I like Branagh as an actor but the supporting characters are not fleshed out in the UK version and the interaction between characters is not as evident. Sorry to hear that a third series is not going to happen, as far as other blogs seem to say?
I like Sarah Smart but Nina Zanjani is beautiful, basically, the whole cast just work better in the original Swedish series.
