Critic Reviews for Pyromaniac (Pyromanen)
The measured pace and minimalism isn't for everyone, but the firebug's escalating, evolving motivations keep the film engaging.
The fascination of puzzling out a compulsive fire-setter's motivations keeps "Pyromaniac" absorbing, even if the film itself provides precious few answers in that regard.
A brightly burning ode to a troubled firestarter who happens to be the son of the fire chief in a small Norwegian village of about 800, Pyromaniac is an unsettling if unfulfilling character study.
Director Erik Skjoldbjærg made the original Insomnia, and he maintains a fine eye and steady beat, even if this film never becomes more than a one-note case study.
There is an understated beauty to Skjoldbjærg's work, like a throwback to an Ivar Johansson film, but toned right down on melodrama.
