Two years after the Swedish-Danish adaptation led by Niels Arden Oplev, this is one of the most prolific directors (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Zodiac, Seven …) who has been working in Hollywood to depict the world of creepy Millennium. This trilogy police story, created by Swedish writer Stieg Larsson, is based on two main characters Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander.
The success of the film is that the atmosphere of Millenium and Fincher universe are very close. So Fincher remains faithful to the book as well as himself.
Fincher is supported by a cinematographer, Jeff Cronenweth (regular collaborator of Ingmar Bergman) and the industrial rock band Trent Reznor and Attila Ross.
The movie looks color less, tastes « metal » and « liquid ».
