‘Room 301’ | Promo | Sundance TV

What is it about

It is now a tradition that members of the Kurttis family get together every year to spend a week of their summer holidays together. A seemingly peaceful summer is stained with tragedy when Tommi, the two-year-old son of one of them, is killed by a rifle shot. Elías, a troubled teenager living nearby, is found guilty of the boy’s death.

The story of Room 301 is narrated in two stages: the summer of 2007, when their lives change forever, and that of 2019, a vacation in a hotel in Greece in which the family begins to suspect that the tenant of room 301 may be Elias, already adult, seeking revenge.

Thanks to the success of Source / Broen (The bridge) Y The crime (The Killing), the Nordic series themselves became a genre that since then continues to bring joy to fans of noir. The latest one is Room 301, a Finnish psychological thriller that plays brilliantly with dosing information and twists in a mystery that unfolds in two timelines. Both stories work independently, but they also complement each other perfectly in a much more complex plot than it might seem at first glance.

The only thing that is clear from the story is that an innocent two-year-old boy has died. The rest of the pieces of the board are in the air. The viewer who takes the motivations of the characters and their place in the puzzle for granted is in for more than one surprise. During the 6 45-minute episodes that make up this miniseries, the screenwriter Kate Ashfield is capable of perfectly balancing the two strong points of the story: the questions of a case where there are still many unknowns to be resolved and the dynamics of two families united by the tragedy and the secrets they want to keep buried at all costs. Unfortunately for them (and luckily for us), The truth always comes to light.

SundanceTV, a channel available on all pay TV platforms, has already broadcast the first two episodes, which are available on demand. Every Thursday at 10:30 p.m. you will be able to see two new episodes on the channel.

With Lupin, Netflix managed to revisit one of the most profitable and prolific brands in French pop culture (The Adventures of Arsène Lupine, the neighboring country’s response to the contemporary phenomenon of Sherlock Holmes) since a current and social perspective (The new hero is the son of a poor black immigrant who wants to do justice to his father’s legacy and make those who used his power and influence pay to escape unscathed).

Omar Sy (the big reveal of Untouchable) is the charismatic protagonist of an intelligent adaptation who knows when to turn to the original material without being engulfed by it. The series created by George McKay (Criminal) can recall recent phenomena such as The Money Heist Y Sherlock, but it is much more anchored in reality and personal and family relationships than those. Netflix premieres this weekend the second part of its first season, five episodes that they keep the devilish rhythm of his predecessor and in which Diop finally faces the great moment he longed for. Will he be able to claim vengeance without losing anything else along the way?
