A Movie- The Girl Played With Fire 7/16/10

After seeing ” The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” this movie was MUST to see for me.  This is the second filmed installment of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling Millennium trilogy, about an investigative journalist (Michael Nyqvist) with a feisty computer hacker (Noomi Rapace) to go on her mission. The directer is  Daniel Alfredson. “The Girl Played With Fire” carries the theme from the first one, “Men Hate Women”. To me this second one is less violent and less complicated than the first one, and it focuses on Lizbeth mostly. The first one had more interaction between the characters, and depicted the emotional complex. This one has more straightforward expression. Most importantly Noomi Rapace is an amazing actress! I am simply impressed by her professionalism. And how did she live during the film shooting being this messed up Lizbeth? How did she make her body as a strong,  thin, and unrealistic looking bi-sexual woman?  It looked as if she is an Anime character! I understand those 3 films were shot consecutively, and she had to live as Lizbeth for a long period.  I recommend that we should see the both movies as sequel.

During my traveling this summer it was so impressive to see so many people reading Larsson’s novels at the airport or on the plane! It is popular! I understand the books have much more information than movies, and many people prefer the book over the movie. I am thinking to read the third one on book. What do you think?  FYI: I saw the movie “Coco and Igor” with great expectation, and it disappointed me so badly!
