Shooting for “The Ape” was a challenge for main actor Olle Sarri: right up to the end, director Jesper Ganslandt would not permit him to read the script – an unusual method that has contributed to the film’s powerful immediacy. One day family man Krister wakes up, sensing that life as he knows it no longer exists. A tragedy has happened, and he is a broken man, though not yet realizing the changes that have come upon him. Soon the consequences he must bear begin to dawn on him. A disturbing emotional drama.
Jesper Ganslandt, born in 1978, director. Besides a number of short films, he has made the documentary"The Film I'm No Longer Talking About" (2009) and "Falkenberg Farewell" (2006).
