A drama with some tense moments and a gripping climax. When Julie, a Danish school-teacher takes on a new job on a small Norwegian island, she discovers that the god-fearing islanders and their crazy vicar hide a dark ...展开secret. It seems that past students at the school have committed suicide. Julie starts to piece together bits of information despite the fact that the church members tend to shun her believing that the devil sent her to their island. This air of mystery is well-developed. Like all good thrillers it is difficult to point a finger at the guilty party although one does have some strong suspicions fairly early on. But is it a red herring? A man carrying an axe, shadowy cellars and faces suddenly appearing unexpectedly at unlocked doors add to the general spooky atmosphere. But this is nothing compared with the closing scenes when Julie exposes the perpetrator and the secret is revealed. The chase which follows and the escape by boat is truly exciting....real edge of the seat stuff! In fact it's enough to put you off teaching as a profession, and the church as depicted in this film is not particularly inviting either.
