Noomi Rapace is all set to perform on-screen as Caroline Edh in Adam Berg’s Netflix feature film version of “Black Crab,” a Scandinavian action thriller set in a post-apocalyptic future, The film is the on-screen adaptation of “Svart Krabba”, the first Swedish novel by author Jerker Virdborg. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic future ravaged by climate change-induced winters and savage civil battles threaten human civilisation.
The novel got nomination for the Swedish Radio Novel Prize in 2003. Adam Berg makes his feature film debut with this film after a career in music videos and commercials. Malin Idevall and Mattias Montero of the Stockholm-based banner Indio are the producers.
Taking place over the course of an interminable winter, Black Crab tells the story of six soldiers as they embark on a perilous expedition across the freezing sea. Their aim is to deliver a cargo that might bring the war to an end. The mission tests their principles and asks them to consider what they’re ready to sacrifice for their own life. Wearing ice skates and not knowing what they’re carrying or who they can trust would be adventurous!
Caroline’s goal isn’t merely to put a stop to the conflict. Their objective, on the other hand, has a distinct meaning for her. The primary challenge facing the troops, according to Netflix, is “what are they ready to sacrifice for their own survival?”
What’s the whisper in the market about Black Crab?
The true calibre of Black Crab, according to director Adam Berg, is in the cast’s resilience in the face of a horrific, apparently hopeless story. However, talking about the film, he stated:
“I’m very happy and proud to have such a strong cast breathe life into this movie and our characters. These skilled actors, their eyes, voices, faces and bodies will carry us through the story. They will make us feel the brutality of war, the importance of hope in a hopeless world and the hard price you have to pay for survival. Additionally, they will bring a beautiful humanity to the cold harsh world that is the Black Crab.”
Producer Montero commented, “Producing ‘Black Crab’ is about flipping the coin. And, from a Scandinavian perspective, showing what happens to humanity when chaos arrives.”
When asked about the movie experience, Noomi Rapace stated:
“I’m very excited to come back to Sweden and do Black Crab. My first Swedish film in years. Can’t wait to suit up and go on this journey – explore human shadows and slide through broken dreams and a world on edge. Survival to what price?”
Also, Rapace will return to Scandinavia and Sweden for the film after spending the previous 10 years overseas appearing on screen. This includes “Prometheus,” “Sherlock Holmes,” and “What Happened to Monday,” as well as independent films like “Daisy Diamond” and “Beyond.”
Jakob Oftebro (Kon-Tiki), Erik Enge, Dar Salim (Game of Thrones), Ardalan Esmaili, Aliette Opheim, and David Dencik are among the other cast members. The film Black Crab is all set to release on March 18th.
