Estelle, a striking blonde, returns to Stockholm at Christmas time, but she is hardly bearing cheer. Because her husband Tommy is the prime suspect of a bloody €4,000,000 heist, federal agents detain Estelle at the airport for questioning. Still, the ever-so-elusive Estelle avoids divulging any information about Tommy’s whereabouts. After the agents release her, Estelle first reunites with her mother Katarina and sister Blanca (played by singer Lykke Li) and then navigates her way through the complex underworld her husband formerly controlled. Estelle’s mission is to retrieve Tommy’s share of the stolen money and flee with her daughter to Sri Lanka, where Tommy is believed to be in hiding. Using threats of her husband’s imminent return, Estelle bullies Tommy’s boorish associates into cooperating. Yet, few are sure whether Estelle is carrying out her powerful husband’s wishes or whether Tommy is in fact dead. Amidst nightclubs, underground tunnels, and the chilly Stockholm streets, tension abounds in Tarik Saleh’s crime drama TOMMY. (In Swedish with subtitles) – E.B.
