Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

"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...
