In Order of Disappearance
Upstanding community leader Nils has just won an award for "Citizen of the Year" when he learns the news that his son has died of a heroin overdose. Suspecting foul play, Nils begins to investigate, and soon finds himself at the center of an escalating underworld gang war between Serbian drug dealers and a sociopathic criminal mastermind known only as “The Count.”
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for cocaine, I can tell you I don't have drugs. But what I do have are a very particular set of snow removal vehicles; Snow removal vehicles I have acquired over a very long career. Snow removal vehicles that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you'd let my son go, that would've been the end of it. I wouldn't look for you, I wouldn't pursue you. But since you didn't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will plow you.
Hans Petter Moland's film is a story about fathers and sons, parental responsibility and cold hearted, blood soaked revenge. Most people will see similarities with Headhunters or the quirky characters that populate the Coen's world although the icy Scandinavian humour, led by Stellan Skarsgaard, sets a tone all of its own.
Nils Dickman hails from Sweden but lives in Norway, recently crowned Citizen of The Year in his small town. Life as a respected family man is turned upside down when his son is murdered, believed to be the victim of a drug overdose. Nils refuses to accept the coroners report and heads off to track down the men he believes to be responsible; cue a pile of dead bodies…
Stellan Skarsgaard punches a lot of people on his way to nail a bad guy who is a cross between Richard E Grant and Richey from Bottom (only norwegian).
Stellan Skarsgård entra directo al número 1 del ranking "Charles Bronson del Siglo XXI". In order of disappearance combina violencia y humor negro de manera magistral, me ha dejado con ganas de mas material del duo HP Moland/S Skarsgård.
Kraftidioten, or In Order of Disappearance which it is called in English, is like an Norwegian crossover between the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino, just not as good. I felt like the movie was trying a bit too hard, it was trying to be tougher than it actually was. I know it's not to be taken completely serious, but I still feel like it could have done better with another cast, some of the actors felt very misscasted. The movie is still good entertainment, there's aspects that are really good, but still I can't seem to like it as much as everyone else seems to have.
The movie is about Nils, a Swedish immigrant that just has been awarded for…
This Norwegian/Swedish/Danish black-comedy revenge film is directed by Hans Petter Moland and starring Stellan Skarsgård and Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen (Kon-Tiki 2012). It was premiered at 64th Berlin International Film Festival. The spoken-language is English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Serbian.
A desperate snow-plough driver Nils (Stellan) must settle score with the drug-lord (Sverre) for murdering his only adult son.
Film's got excellent music-score and locations. Filled with average but good performance, this Norwegian movie ensures audience to lay their trust in the Scandinavian film-industry. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed (except its duration).
The honorable citizen Nils ploughs snow in the wild winter mountains of Norway, when his son is mistakenly murdered, Nils takes action, which ignites a war between the vegan gangster "the Count" and the Serbian mafia boss Papa.
A bit TV esque at times, but has enough good moments to give it a light recommend.
Even the plot is quite simple, the beautiful scenarios and itsvast snowy setting makes it different from a regular revenge drama.Though most of us can't get the dark,subtle humour in the dialogues as we don't know the language, Definitely a watchable revenge drama.
I am always a sucker for a good Nordic film. When "In order of disappearance" started the only thing I was wondering about for the first 20 minutes or so is whether Liam Neeson or Denzel would be more appropriate for the Holywood reboot.
Then there was this change in tone: the movie tried to become funnier, touch more issues (like immigration) and in the end it was rather more than the revenge flick it appeared to be at first.
Not all of the gimmicks worked and it did lose me at a certain point but I 'll give it props decent characters and for trying to be original
Dour Scandi humour and some big-arse snow blowers make for a blackly comic take on Taken and the kind of movie that Liam Neeson has been making for the last few years now. The violence isn't played for laughs, but it gets more than a couple of chortles out of such unwhimsical things as the undignified elevation of corpses, whether on a gurney or the back of a truck.
As ever, Stellan Skarsgård is never knowingly overrated and rival mob bosses played by Pål Sverre Hagen and Bruno Ganz escalate it into a toweringly dark farce. Naturally, there's already an English language remake in the works with original director Hans Petter Molland and Ireland's crossest man in the lead role- if it retains any of the Tarantino and McDonagh flavoured darkness in translation, I'm up for giving it a go.
The combination of stunning Norwegian snowscapes, quirky Scandi humour, and Stellan Skarsgard's incredible screen presence elevates what could've been a fairly dull revenge thriller into something pretty special.
OBVIOUSLY it's now being remade with Liam Neeson in the lead. Which'll probably still be watchable, but I hope they set it somewhere snowy. Skarsgard chasing down baddies in a snow plough might be one of cinema's greatest images.
Norwegian revenge film in which Stellan Skarsgård plays a mild-mannered snow-blower driver who goes over the edge when his son is killed by drug dealers. I kept thinking "this is like a Liam Neeson plot" so it's no surprise that the movie's being remade with Neeson as we speak... At the risk of sounding blasphemous (and with no disrespect to the mighty Skarsgård, who gives his usual solid performance), I think there's a chance I'll prefer the Neeson one.
For a slightly-plotted thriller, this movies at a glacial pace. It's nearly 2 hours, which is at least half an hour too long. There aren't really any characters or situations that are remotely believable and, while it never strives for realism,…
Needed more Stellan. I didn't know snowplows can be so epic, though.
Your stock crime/revenge yarn laced with some nice comic grace-notes, like the main crime lord being a vegan health-nut who makes fruit smoothies for all of his henchmen. Otherwise, whatever.
These are the greatest films I have ever seen.
