Dir. Tobias Lindholm, Denmark, 2012, 99 mins, subtitles
Johan Philip Asbæk, Søren Malling, Dar Salim
Following on from its successful screening at BIFF 2013, this superbly intelligent and tense drama gets a second outing at the Picture House. A Hijacking stars Borgen’s Pilou Asbæk, who here plays the cook on a Danish-registered ship taken hostage by Somali pirates. The focus metronomes back and forth between the vessel and Copenhagen as the owners and hijackers slowly hammer out a deal. Outstanding on every level, A Hijacking features a terrific ensemble cast including real-life negotiator Gary Skjoldmose Porter and Søren Malling, best known as Sarah Lund’s abrasive colleague Jan Meyer in The Killing.
