"We need more extreme movies in Sweden, personal projects that aren't necessarily made for a bigger audience. I think it creates a creative block to always have the audience as a goal." - as said by Noomi Rapace (protagonist in Swedish version).
I think this really highlights the fear some people have of the American remake; that by seeking to satisfy a larger audience the plot will lose its niche and this 'creativity'.On seeing the film I was drawn by Lisbeth's character.
However, I do think the film scene in Hollywood is changing and including some more original plot outlines, so it's 50/50.Still I wonder if Salander will be aimed at 'darker' teens as a hero figure (an easy sell in my view) rather than the ruthless, empowering, yet fragile, female conveyed in the Swedish version...
