About The Unthinkable 💬

It's Midsummer and Sweden wakes up to a raging flight alarm. TV, internet and the telephone network are down, and before anyone realizes what's behind the collapse, a series of unexplained events take place around the country.

THE UNTHINKABLE is about how ordinary people like you and me would react if the worst would happen. Who would we call? Where would we go? In the light of the fact that everything can end at any time, what really matters comes in sight. What would we change before it's too late?

December, 2005

When Sweden faces a mysterious attack Alex (Christoffer Nordenrot) is forced back to his childhood village. There he must be reconciled with both his father Björn (Jesper Barkselius) and youth love, Anna (Lisa Henni), while they all struggle to survive.


Sweden is under a mysterious attack. We are experiencing the scenario through the perspective of the common people. You and I. How would we react if the phones didn't work and the internet shut down? Where would we go if the flight alarm went on? Should or priorities be changed?

THE UNTHINKABLE is a relationship drama/thriller in a disaster environment. Consistently, we experience the scene from the perspective of our main characters without knowing what's going on around the corner. It invites to nail-biting excitement, but also an intimate character design.

We wanted to make an exciting film without compromising on the drama. We invest a lot of time in the characters and engage the audience in their relationships. Just when you forget that it's actually a spectacular film you're watching, it's exploding. Big time. And when the threat comes closer you really care about the people who lives are in danger.

Mystery. Nostalgia. Human fragility. Three keywords we used to weld together all aspects of production to a collective vision. Whether it was acting or scenography, photo or music, the goal has been to create something that feels mystic and tickling, related and above all imperfect. Just like us humans.

The work of expressing human fragility went so far that we chose not to rehearse anything with the actors. Instead, we conducted long conversations about backstory and motivation, so the game on the shooting would feel alive and in the moment. Several of the best moments in the film are improvised on location. For the cinematographer, it meant shooting on old Soviet lenses to create uncontrollable character and life in the image. For the composer, it meant to build the sound around analog synthesizers and church organs.

All these details to achieve our primary goal with the film; to create a film that feels alive and authentic.
