the bridge bron / broen (danish/swedish tv series)

the bridge is one of the best tv series i’ve seen since Twin Peaks.

the acting is brilliant, and the story is amazing….but.

the cinematography is something else.

a lot of it is filmed at night, and the night shots are the best i’ve seen on a tv show.

i’ve just finished season two, which was also good. took me a while to work out what was going on.

i think it may have been the foreign language issue.

  1. I started the Danish original but then switched to the American version (takes place between Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas.) Holy Mother of Wow…superb. Took me a while to figure out the female detective. At first, I thought the actress was pretty wooden till I “got it.”

  2. YES exactly why I sought it out. A friend of mine mentioned it had very desaturated and gritty urban “noir” style cinematography and naturally I had to see it! I adore the time-lapse opening theme with the haunting song (loved hearing the full version here, thanks for sharing that!) and the night shooting is just superb. Beautifully dreary. Haven’t heard of “Twin Peaks,” will have to check that out. Smiling cheers,
