In this drama, directed by Michael R. Roskam, Rapace plays Nadia, a woman with a difficult past. She meets Bob when he rescues an injured puppy that’s been put in her garbage. Afterwards, they begin dating. Meanwhile, the bar where Bob works is robbed. Co-starring Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini.
I remember Michael said to me, once, that Nadia — she is like a broken angel. And in a way, I think that describes her. She’s a young woman with a troubled past. She had a relationship with Eric Deeds, Matthias’ character, and he’s quite a complicated and disturbed man. And I think that she’s strong. She has a strength. She was living something bad, really destructive, but she managed to break it and move on.
