Director: Morten Tyldum Starring: Aksel Hennie, Synnøve Macody Lund, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Julie R. Ølgaard Running time: 100 mins
Subject: Nuts Norwegian thriller that verges between sickening, ridiculous and ridiculously sickening. Unlikeable protagonist supplements his headhunter income with art thefts to subsidise a hot wife. An even more unlikeable character, a coolly terrifying tracker, arrives in town, resembling a buff Scandavian Aaron Eckhart. Cat and mouse tension, murder and mayhem ensues.
Like: Javier Bardem’s character from No Country For Old Men given a better haircut and set loose on a criminal venture capitalist.
Core truth: We all look good compared to murdering psychopaths.
