I know I should have done my research about name spellings, etc., before posting this, but I’m too excited to do so.
I just spent 2:26:29 hours watching the Swedish version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” the movie. In one word: MAGNIFICENT! Don’t recall ever seeing a movie that followed the book so precisely! It is SO great to be able to put faces with the two main characters.
The actress who plays Lisbeth Salander is more Lisbeth than Lisbeth is (and that’s not a good sentence, but it’s precise). As I watched her, she reminded me of a mixture of Jamie Lee Curtis (a much shorter version, of course) and just a tad of Sandra Bullock…and Harmon (whose first name I can’t remember right now). And the actor who plays Mikael Blomkvist is RIGHT ON (another Joe Namath…the second name [spelling] I should have checked before rushing to the keyboard to post this)!
BRAVO! Best 2:26:29 hours I’ve spent watching a movie in a very, very long time! I recommended the book, and I am absolutely, positively recommending the foreign movie version, too! (Of course, you’ve gotta love subtitles!)
