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.

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.
