Asger is finishing one of the many annoying duties at the police station when he gets a call from a kidnapped woman. Can he help her quickly and with strategic savvy? A procedural thriller drawing on the Scandi crime drama tradition, which dispenses with action scenes without sacrificing its adrenaline punch.


Synopsis

Asger is finishing one of the many annoying duties at the police station when he gets a call from a kidnapped woman. Can he help her quickly and with strategic savvy? Less is sometimes more, and Gustav Möller’s feature debut is a wonderful example of this. In contrast to the norm for suspenseful, adrenaline-packed crime dramas, the filmmaker took the route of formal minimalism, keeping the camera inside the station the entire time. Thus the protagonist’s frustration at not being able to visit the crime scene is mirrored by the audience, which is left entirely voreto its own imaginative devices. And as this carefully-paced thriller demonstrates, our experience of the story is fundamentally determined by our fancy.
