We rented the American version of the story, and I was not disappointed. More later…

Is it as good as ‘Citizen Kane’?
I don’t know; having never seen Citizen Kane, I’m ill qualified to make a judgment. I DO know that I WAS disappointed that the American version tinkered significantly with the ending of the novel – unnecessarily, I might add, as I couldn’t see any benefit to the story or the film’s economic bottom line in the change and, in fact, I felt the story was less compelling as a result. Beyond that, though, I was wholly satisfied with the choice of actors, and the particular attention paid to the detail of a couple of key scenes.
I enjoyed the Swedish film(s), and Noomi Rapace. I haven’t bothered with the US remake, yet, but someday, maybe if it gets on On Demand.
