Movie Info

An seemingly ordinary man must face the consequences of his own actions in this drama from Swedish filmmaker Jesper Ganslandt. Krister (Olle Sarri) is a middle-aged man who makes his living as a driving instructor. One morning, he wakes up still wearing his clothes from the night before and covered with blood; seemingly unaware of what happened, he cleans himself up, changes his clothes and leaves for work. As the day wears on, the terrible events of the previous day gradually fade into his

This artful examination of a very dark soul isn't always easy to watch. But the film's bleak chill is mesmerising.

It's a devastating portrait of a man on the edge of madness, and not easy to forget.

Sarri's great performance is what will keep you watching.

Existential Scandinavian stuff, it holds the attention.

This is a difficult, painful film, and hardly for everyone. It left me in a gibbering foetal ball in a corner of the cinema foyer. But in Jesper Ganslandt, Sweden has a new star director.

Jesper Ganslandt's film strikes me as an exercise in morbid intensity for its own sake, but it's certainly well done.

The Ape pulls no punches on its fresh approach on how to deal and live with the consequences of our action.

Perfect in its duration, perfect in its ending, and chillingly perfect in its central performance, The Ape plays off the banalities of life against a constant, underlying sense of dread.
