Easy Money

3

Before Daniel Espinosa directed Safe House...

Joining Scandinavia's impressive array of crime thrillers is Daniel Espinosa’s Easy Money (aka Snabba Cash): the 2010 film that preceded the Swedish director’s US debut Safe House.

Stockholm-set, it follows poor, money-obsessed business student Johan (Joel Kinnaman), whose shallow double life as a high-society playboy is only supported by his descent into organised crime.

The premise is hardly original and suffers from a story that, by its third act, feels padded out; nonetheless, this is a slick, tense and brutal portrait of a man out of his depth.
