    aha, i am enlightened now. Yes, i remember a not so jolly Bergman film about a virgin going for a walk in the forest..Oh dear it didn’t end well. I agree, i really dunno what the big deal is, about as bad as it gets is taking a powder break and not knowing the action since turning it up loud doesn’t work!

    I did, in hope, think my knowledge of Danish might improve to this extent, but sadly, no..Just imploring your brain to take it in by osmosis was perhaps being over optimistic.


    @All & Our Host James Donaghy:

    nb. Out of pure boredom with the plot and numerous logical holes in the remake i have been exercising my brain with the matter of the Ammonium Hydroxide. So far i have come up with this but i need more chemistry know how to really get somewhere.

    I have ascertained that Ammonium Hydroxide is found in a less concentrated form in many household cleaners. In it’s original (i think) concentrated form it is used in industrial cleaning, the meat industry (!) & furniture restoration.

    My question is this:if Rosie’s lungs had Ammonium Hydroxide in them she must have breathed it in in the form of either a vapour eg a gas or by close contact with the concentrated form.

    To breathe it in in concentrated form is very caustic and painful and is classified as poisoning. So how could she have run x amount of miles?

    If she breathed it in in a vapour form-possibly by being near something soaked in Ammonium Hydroxide-then what was it? Could the car boot have recently been cleaned and could that have done it?

    Any Chemistry buffs out there?
