Editorial Reviews

Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) EASY MONEY is a Swedish crime thriller based on the international best-selling novel Snabba Cash by Jens Lapidus. Lower-class business student JW (Joel Kinnaman from AMC's 'The Killing') falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm's wealthy elite. To keep up the facade of his lifestyle he's lured into a world of crime. Jorge is a petty fugitive on the run from both the police and Serbian mafia. He hopes that brokering a massive cocaine deal will allow him to escape for good. Mafia enforcer Mrado is on the hunt for Jorge but his efforts are complicated when he's unexpectedly saddled with caring for his young daughter. As JW's journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organized crime the fate of all three men becomes entangled and ends with a dramatic struggle for life and death.

The movie is very well acted.
Urszula Oleksyn
And the first film adaptation was released in theaters in 2010 and would received critical acclaim and become one of the best selling films in Sweden.

The ending was completely changed and not for the good.

What is it with those crime dramas and thrillers out of Scandinavia? There is of course the Millenium trilogy out of Sweden a few years ago, and earlier this year an equally enthralling "Headhunters" out of Norway, and now we (finally!) get this movie out of Sweden.

"Easy Money" (2010 release from Sweden; 124 min.) brings the story of JW (played by Joel Kinnaman), an economics university student in Stockholm who is driving a cab on the side to earn extra money. His Serbian boss in the (black market) cab company is also dabbling in the underground drug scene, and soon JW is given the opportunity to make extra money there too. JW needs the money as he really wants to fit in with some of his (upper class) university friends, where he also meet Sophie, whom he talkes a crush on. The movie then takes its time to lay out fractioning Eastern European drug gangs in Stockholm (as small as they are), and at one point JW is approached by the rival drug gang, to snitch on his own. Will JW take the bait? To tell more would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see how it all plays out. The movie has a LOT of characters to follow, and, to great effect, takes time to develop those characters. There is, just to name one, Mrado, a really bad guy, who all of the sudden has to deal with and care for his 8 yr. old daughter due to her mother's drug addiction. The scenes between Mrado and his young daughter just break your heart.

What a movie this is! The tension hardly lets up in the entire movie, and it all builds towards the devastating last 20 min, just wow. Joel Kinnaman is excellent as the lead actor.

"Easy Money" ("Snabba cash") is a Swedish thriller and character drama based on the novel of the same name by Jens Lapidus. JW (Joel Kinnaman) is an economics student in Stockholm who dreams of a glamorous lifestyle. He drives a taxi to make money, while he struggles to fit in with rich friends. Jorge (Matias Padin) is a career criminal from South America who has just escaped from a Swedish prison. JW's employer Abdulkarim (Mahmut Suvakci) and Serbian crime lord Radovan (Dejan Cukic) both want to find Jorge, as he is well-connected to a cocaine supplier in Germany. Radovan gets his enforcer Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic) after Jorge, and Abdulkarim offers to pay JW to find him. Abdulkarim wants to import cocaine, and JW sees an opportunity to insinuate himself in the financial community by having Abdulkarim buy a troubled investment bank to launder the drug money. But Radovan doesn't want the competition, and JW doesn't understand what he's gotten into.

"Easy Money" is a much darker film than Sweden usually produces. This is a fine script by Maria Karlsson, but much of the credit for its success is due Joel Kinnaman, who conveys JW's insecurities and his ambitions so well. JW is a bit of a dandy, replacing the buttons on cheap shirts to make them look more stylish, pasting pictures from GQ on his dorm room walls. He's convinced that his rich girlfriend Sophie (Lisa Henni) won't want anything to do with him if he isn't rich too. Joel Kinnaman is a tall, blonde, handsome man, a Nordic vision among the many immigrants in the criminal underworld. I don't know if "Easy Money" is trying to make an anti-immigration statement or if it is true that the overwhelming majority of organized crime in Sweden is carried out by immigrants. But the criminals are all Serbian, Arab, or Armenian.

Format: DVD
In 2006, Swedish criminal defense lawyer and author would write the noel "Snabba Cash", as part of the "Stockholm Noir" trilogy. The novel would become the fourth best selling novel in Sweden in 2007 and it caught the interest of Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House", "The Fighter", "Outside Love").

Because of Espinosa's upbringing in Skogas and his Chilean roots, he understood how it was to hang out with Yugoslavians and also hanging out with the upperclass in Sigtuna. So, he can identify with the story of "Snabba Cash". And the first film adaptation was released in theaters in 2010 and would received critical acclaim and become one of the best selling films in Sweden.

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese helped give the film recognition in America and the film was also part of a major bidding war in which the Weinstein Company acquired the rights to the film but also for a remake which will star Zac Efron.

With a sequel of "Snabba Cash" having been released in theaters in Sweden, the DVD for the first film titled "Easy Money" will be released in America courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment.

VIDEO, AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"Easy Money" is presented in Anamorphic Widescreen, 2:35:1 aspect ratio) in Swedish Dolby Digital 5.1 with English/English SDH subtitles. I'm a little surprised that there is no Blu-ray HD release of this title (considering it was released on Blu-ray in 2010 in various countries) but for the most part, the DVD looks very good. Colors are warm, I saw no artifacts or major problems with picture quality. Cinematography by Aril Wretblad ("Jalla! Jalla!", Kopps", "Zozo") is well-done and he does a great job in capturing the elegance of the high society parties but also the world of the criminal underworld.
