I really was looking forward to this, but it never really starts or goes anywhere. Two "cleaners" find a girl hidden in a basement tub filled with a milk-like liquid, and she's had her tail removed... The best feature is the cover art.

Great Realistic Feel for Indie Fantasy, It is Not Horror April 17 2013
By Worldwalker1967 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Meet the "Huldra" - a mythological forest creature (humanoid) from Scandinavian Lore. The setting is beautiful at times, but primarily focused upon a woodland cabin (underground warren) and surrounding terrain. However, this low budget Indie approach works, as we experience the daily grind of two men who clean houses, including those with crime scenes or dead occupants. These characters are nicely developed as the story unfolds, and you end up caring about them. They are dealing with the burdens of life - as we all are. Their mundane cleaning assignment takes an "Alice" turn when they decide to fall down the metaphorical rabbit hole only to meet a seemingly "habituated" Huldra. The performances are good all around, with the actors carrying the water without much dialogue - they must rely upon emotion, interaction, flashbacks, physical, etc. The pace and plot are just fine, albeit slower than the big budget stuff - same feel as Troll Hunter. The CGI was well done for the price, and I deemed the rental cost worth it for the intro to the Huldra mythology. On my Indie scale, it's a 4 star, but temper your expectations to that production style. Finally, this doesn't meet my threshold for the "horror" category. It's barely Dark Fantasy. Enjoy.

ILHM Reviews: Thale April 10 2013
By Carl Manes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
A pair of unsuspecting cleaners stumble upon a mysterious girl that has been locked away beneath a remote cabin in the woods during one of their jobs. After searching the cabin, they quickly come to find that the lovely Thale may belong to a mythical race of woodland creatures, and that there are evil forces at work outside the cabin that hope to capture and exploit her for their own gain. Aleksander Nordaas brings the Scandinavian legend of the Huldra to life in the Fantasy Horror film, THALE. THALE is given a sense of whimsical wonder through Silje Reinåmo's inquisitive performance as the titular creature. Reinåmo acts as though she is experiencing the world for the first time, and lashes out with an animal-like ferocity when cornered. Erlend Nervold and Jon Sigve Skard are left to navigate us through the story as Elvis and Leo, whose personal defects give them an unbridled sense of humanity as we are drawn deeper in to their characters. The story, itself, seems quite strange at first for a Fantasy Horror piece of its kind, but Nordaas adapts many modern themes in order to blend myth with reality. THALE continues the trend of fanciful Scandinavian creature features as we have seen recently in RARE EXPORTS and TROLL HUNTER, bringing a dark new twist to ancient lore.

Perfect Indy Horror/Drama March 19 2013
By N. J. Searl - Published on Amazon.com
This is premium quality, foreign, indy film. The characters are well developed, the flash backs are done creatively and cleanly and no one tried to overstep their bounds with effects. I felt genuine emotion during the dramatic sequences and wished it had been longer. I can imagine some people will find fault with specific parts of the movie after having rented/ purchased it but in my opinion this movie delivers what it promises. I wish that the writers had made the time span we get to spend with the three main characters longer and that there had been a few more action sequences. I think it's worth every penny of a rental fee and I would consider purchasing it.

NORWEGIAN TAIL July 12 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Leo (Jon Sigve Skard) sometimes called Ray, operates a cleaning service for crime/death scenes. He is aided by Elvis (Erlend Nervold) who has a sensitive stomach. While on a clean up, they discover a hidden basement and a girl mysteriously alive. She is naked and does not speak.

From a flashback from a drone narration we know she was found and cared for by the dead Norwegian who lived there.

The film is an interesting concept. The characters started out interesting, but then became more boring as the film went along. Too much of the film is spent in the basement trying to unravel a mystery. The film has blood and some killing, but I would consider it more akin to sci-fi fantasy than horror.

This film is not for everyone.

Parental Guide: Nudity. No sex or f-bombs.

Great movie Aug. 10 2013
By Brian Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I find myself buying more films from Sweden, Norway, Russia, and other European countries because the stories are superior, uniquely told, and more thought provoking than most of the crap coming out of LaLa-land. Hate to say it but American films (except for most independents and small studio fare) could be made by thoughtless automatons. Perhaps this is because American movie makers only care about the holy dollar, not the story. Too much money is spent on special effects or terrible overpriced actors (?) and advertising. I believe that LaLa-land can't make movies without nudity, foul language, anti-Americanism (I don't understand this position at all), thinly disguised racism, anti-God or anti-Christian, anti-family, etc messaging. The few good films that get made earn Billions worldwide so I just don't get it.

Generally, foreign films are low budgeted endeavors concentrating more on story. No matter the genre, the story is what matters. In the case of "Thale", a film based on the "hulder" of Norwegian folklore, we have one of these beings, female, discovered by "cleanup men" (sort of a forensics team) as they process a death. She's been locked away by members of a government research group for years, unable to speak, and not understanding her situation.

This movie cost about $10000 to make and not a penny is wasted. Acting is very good and so are the special effects. Thale is a great morality play and well worth watching. The film is in Norwegian or dubbed English. Subtitles are provided as are additional highlights.

The hulder are described in Wikipedia for those who are interested.
