The Chestnut Man Review 2021 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew
THE CHESTNUT MAN on Netflix is a new Danish thriller series about a brutal serial killer. The six engaging episodes should keep you hooked. Great pacing, realistic characters, and gorgeous visuals make this a must-watch on Netflix.
THE CHESTNUT MAN is a new Netflix thriller series with a crime plot. The production is Danish so we’re dealing with a classic Nordic Noir. However, with a much better color palette than the usual blue and grey tones. Also, the characters and plot work remarkably well. So much so that this is the best Netflix series from Denmark so far.Actually, it’s one of the strongest thriller crime series on Netflix. Right up there with the very best of the Harlan Coben adaptions. With just six episodes, this one is very easy to binge-watch (and virtually impossible not to), so just go for it and enjoy watching this play out. We’ve watched all six episodes for this review and it is, of course
It has almost become a joke of sorts that the Nordic Noir subgenre is all about color-drained imagery. Somehow, it’s always raining (or at the very least overcast) and every shot has a blue or grey tint to it. Well, not in The Chestnut Man which highlights the gorgeous colors of Fall in Denmark.
It’s a virtual tourism advertisement. Well, if it wasn’t for the whole serial killer plot, obviously.And the serial killer plot is an excellent one. Right from the strong opening scene of episode 1 to the final moments of episode 6, you’ll experience a tightly told thriller. Also, The Chestnut Man offers brutal murder scenes. Or rather, you’ll see the results of the murderer but not the actual murders, which is exactly how it should be.And you can rest assured, all questions will ultimately be answered. Also, the pacing works perfectly for the six episodes in this limited series.
Along with having a solid plot, The Chestnut Man wins by having realistic characters and an excellent cast. Well, alongside those gorgeous visuals of Fall in Denmark that I mentioned earlier, of course.In case you didn’t know, this is the third Danish Netflix series to be produced. Interestingly, the two main characters in The Chestnut Man are portrayed by actors who starred in the previous two. The first series was The Rain which starred Mikkel Boe Følgaard and then came Equinox which starred Danica Curcic.
This Netflix series is based on a novel by Søren Sveistrup who is also a writer on this adaption alongside Dorte W. Høgh. They have both worked on several TV series in the past. In fact, while Søren Sveistrup is now an author, he was first a writer for movies and TV. He co-wrote The Snowman screenplay and created the original Danish version of The Killing series.
All six episodes are directed by just two different directors Kasper Barfoed and Mikkel Serup, who have both worked on various TV series and movies in Denmark for many years. If this Netflix series becomes the huge success it deserves to be, then they can look forward to many new opportunities in the feature.
The six engaging episodes in this new Danish thriller series about a brutal serial killer should keep you hooked from start to finish. If you felt Mike Flanagan’s latest Netflix series Midnight Mass was too slow, then The Chestnut Man should definitely be more your speed. An absolute must-watch on Netflix.
The Chestnut Man is out on Netflix from September 29, 2021.
