Queues of cars stretch away into the distance, and at the end of the road, family and friends wait among silver birches in full, shimmering bloom.
I am neither really acquainted with actors in this movie but they are solid in their roles.Swedes are fairly well attuned to the rhythms of nature.At Midsummer, many begin their five-week annual holidays and everyone is in a hurry to get things done during the relatively short summer season.In picture above: Helsinki skyline from the sea at midnight around the summer solstice.The major midsummer festivities in Finland and Sweden take place on Midsummer Eve, the Friday preceding the Midsummer Day.At midsummer, the people in the Nordic countries celebrate the lightest time of the year and the proper start of summer season.
The short winter days are far behind and one can enjoy the long days and white nights of Nordic summer.
Story is somewhat typical, some guys went too far, where no one can help them, and someone/something is chasing them.
But script makes sense and I didn't find any "holes" in it.
Like Christmas Eve, the Midsummer Eve is a public holiday, during which only stores are open part of the day.
Midnight sun Midsummer is also the time of summer solstice, the culmination of summer and a turning point after which the days begin to slowly shorten again in the northern hemisphere.
The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.
