“It is Reinamo as Thale who shines here. She doesn’t utter a word, but her tortured soul and dangerous character are something to well and truly be amazed at. She is mysterious, engaging, frightening and stunning to look at. She seduces the viewer as her character is supposed to, and whether you want to or not, she will have you under her spell. A magical performance indeed” Read the rest of the review here!

“The highlight of the film is the discovery of the woman herself, Thale, played by the mesmerizing Silje Reinåmo, who I predict will be a Bond girl at some point if she gets the right agent. Here she shows a broad range from fearful and innocent Bambi to ferocious wild child and does so naked the whole time, which is a feat in itself, I’m sure. In her eyes alone and with very little dialog, Reinåmo embodies the curious, devoted, and trapped animal.”

Ain´t it cool news

“Every bit of communication is done with subtle looks, reactions, and body language. Reinåmo does that through brilliant acting, and displays a wide range of emotions with simple yet effective means, augmented by nice camera work.”

Nordic Fantasy

“The almost totally silent Thale (played by relative newcomer Silje Reinåmo) manages to be charismatic and siren-like, even when she’s frightened and totally quiet.”
