And after all that. You can bet I was incredibly convinced that this film was a perfect rendition of the book's world. Trust me on this when it comes to books I am good with this. Part of the reason is due to me easily envisioning book universes pretty quickly.
Enough of that, though, why is it that I believe The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was brought to life so well by the 2011 film? Well other than the distinctly Swedish-like setting required from the books, we also have to take into account the often times sexually explicit content. And most of these times these are never pleasant. This is something the movie handles incredibly well, especially as Salander is about to get raped and the movie uses an interesting cinematographic technique, by cutting off. Leaving little to the imagination.
