Dir: Gustav Möller | Denmark | 2018 | 85 mins | Danish w/Eng subtitles
Cast: Jakob Cedergren, Jessica Dinnage, Johan Olsen
Gustav Möller’s high-concept, low budget debut is a deft, taut, nail-biting thriller and Nordic noir shot in real time. In a police station somewhere in Denmark, police officer Asger (Jakob Cedergren) has been consigned to phone duties – reluctantly so until he takes a shivery, cryptic call from Iben (Jessica Dinnage). She’s been kidnapped, Asger finds out, before the call is abruptly disconnected. But confined to the station, what can he do? Unrelenting and brilliantly performed, Möller’s fantastically effective thriller generates incredible suspense from the elements at his disposal.
