  • A Hijacking

    A Hijacking

    ★★★½

    Danish title: Kapringen
    Director: Tobias Lindholm
    Company: Nordisk Film
    Released: 20/09/2012. 132,032 admissions in Denmark. Released worldwide.

    Key Nordic themes:
    - Sea life
    - Business

    The Danish equivalent of 'Captain Phillips' (the two are not related), this film explores the hijacking of a Danish ship by Somali pirates on waters near India. The film is incredibly tense and well known Danes Pilou Asbæk and Søren Malling are excellent. What makes it an interesting film is the relationship between the pirates and the Danes.

    This film is not highly relevant to Nordic culture, and this makes it seem that it was made for an international audience.

    Valhalla Rising

    ★★★★

    Mads Mikkelsen is an Odin-like viking who joins the Scottish Vikings on their quest for the "promised land". Almost like a silent film, incredibly beautiful and well made.

    Through a Glass Darkly

    ★★★½

    At times it's hard to watch, but when watched as part of the trilogy it carries a deeper message.
