Product Description

Amazon.ca

Fans of Stieg Larsson's Men Who Hate Women may have been concerned about how the Swedish author's novel would translate to the screen, but they needn't have worried. Significant changes to the source material have been made, but director Niels Arden Opley's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as it's now called, is mostly riveting. As the story begins, middle-aged investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has just been convicted of a bogus charge of libel against a rich and corrupt corporate hotshot when he's unexpectedly offered a most unusual gig. An aging captain of industry named Henrik Vanger (Sven-Bertil Taube) wants Blomkvist to figure out what happened to Vanger's niece, who disappeared more than 40 years earlier; not only is the old man convinced that she was murdered, but he suspects that another member of his large and rather disagreeable family (which includes several former Nazis) is the culprit. Blomkvist takes the job, which includes spending at least six months on Vanger's isolated island in the middle of winter. But what he doesn't know is that he's being spied on by twentysomething Lisbeth Salander (brilliantly played by Noomi Rapace in a career-making performance), the titular Girl and the possessor of remarkable skills as a sleuth and computer hacker. With her gothlike piercings and all-black clothes, Lisbeth is a vivid character, to say the least. While we don't exactly know the details of her dark past, it's obviously still with her; indeed, she's just been assigned a new "guardian" (like a parole officer) to look after her finances and other matters. We also know that she is not someone to mess with; when the guardian turns out to be a thoroughly vile monster, Lisbeth gets back at him in one of the more satisfying revenge sequences in recent memory. That Lisbeth and Mikael should end up working together, and more, isn't especially surprising. But the horrifying details and depths of depravity they uncover while working on the case (parallels to The Silence of the Lambs are facile but appropriate) definitely are, and Opley does a nice job of keeping it all straight. At more than two and a half hours, the film is long, with its share of grim, graphic, and scary moments, but The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a winner. --Sam Graham

The Stieg Larsen trilogy books were a refreshing discovery and I ripped through them all. Everyone, to whom I recommended the books, enjoyed them as well. I saw the director interviewed on Charlie Rose and was intrigued with his description of the movie and characters. He said that at the initial screening of the movie he knew he was on the right track when, at the point of the movie the heroine exacts her revenge on her antagonist, all the women in the audience stood and cheered. He also said that he made all three movies, so there is a complete film trilogy to match the stories.

When the movie showed up in my town to not much fanfare, I went with a friend. Although it is subtitled in English,, after a few minutes the subtitles become dialogue in your head, as your mind gives voice to the characters, as it does when you read a book. The movie was superbly cast and filmed and simply added to my enjoyment of the books and confirmed my own images of the characters. My friend pronounced it the best movie he'd seen. Highly recommended.

I absolutely loved the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so imagine my joy when learning all three films were available.
Then my elation was dashed when checking the cover to discover the lack of English subtitles for the Swedish language track. I will be returning my unopened copies and wait for the edition with English sub-titles. I find it a bit disconcerting that I have to buy them first to find this out instead of relying on Amazon to provide appropriate information. With the English sub-titles the rating would have been 5 stars Millenium 2 [Blu-ray]Millenium 3 Reine Dans Le Pal

I'm sorry, but bernie "xyzzy"'s opinion is very idiotic in its description. Certainly, there is nothing wrong with watching a film in its original language with subtitles. Much of the time, I actually prefer this than a bad voice over. So, simply put, this is one of the best films to come out on DVD in North America within the last year. Watch it with "subtitles" in its original format, and enjoy a truly great suspense-filled film with absolutely amazing acting. Besides the sequels to this film, I also recommend another Swedish film called, "Let The Right One In."Let the Right One in

Having read all three of the books by Steig Larson I was looking forward to the movie. It did not disappoint. The screenplay stays true to what the story was all about; my husband had not read the book and he found the movie to be engrossing and an excellent story.

The DVD allows you to choose to watch in the original swedish format or switch to English dubbing. One would thing the dubbing might be a distraction but in fact it wasn't at all.

Noomi Rapace was an excellent choice to play Lisbeth Salander. I highly recommend the movie to anyone who likes/loves mysteries.

The movie is fantastic and is worthy of the novel it portrays (I will not go into details). However, be advised that this is not an English-friendly release. It has the original Swedish audio track (Dolby 5.1) and two French-dubbed audio tracks (DTS MA and Dolby 5.1). Also, it only has French subtitles. Unless you are comfortable with French subtitles, you should probably wait for an English-friendly release.

Format: Blu-ray
"The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" sounds more like a kung-fu movie than a Swedish thriller. But a Swedish thriller it is.

And the film adapted from the late Stieg Larsson's first bestselling novel is a soon-to-be-classic example of a movie that has way more going on than it appears. It's a bit on the slow side at times, but it also has a raw, stark quality that hits you harder than any Hollywood blockbuster could -- and Noomi Rapace and Michael Nyqvist are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Take-no-prisoners journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) has just lost his reputation, his savings and his freedom (hello, jail sentence!) after a nasty libel suit from an executive.

Then he's unexpectedly contacted by aged industrialist Henrik Vanger, to discover what happened to the guy's grandniece, Harriet. She vanished forty years ago from the family's isolated island home, and her body -- alive or dead -- was never found. When Mikael agrees to take the case, he's cybershadowed by the abused goth hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace).

Eventually Lisbeth reveals herself to Mikael by decoding vital information and sending it to him. Intrigued by this strange wounded woman, Mikael asks her to help him in his cold-case investigation, and the two begin unwinding a bizarre string of serial killings from long ago -- all tied to Bible quotes. And as Mikael unearths the clues to Harriet's disappearance, he also finds some skeletons long kept buried.

"The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" takes the Agatha Christie aesthetic of a locked-room murder with a dozen suspects, and enfolds it in a ruthless look at modern Swedish society and the study of sexual aggression.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I expected to receive a copy with swedish audio track and french subtitles, but unlike Millenium 2 & 3, the swedish audio track was not available on the version I received (as per description on the back of the package). I did not verify if eventually the swedish version would be also available by opening the product (did not want to prevent myself from returning the product). On the picture, you may notice 2 small words close to the main title (below "Millenium", and right of "Le Film"). It says "Version Francaise" (french version) and it is confirmed on the back of the package. If you receive another version, you may have better luck.
