Description

When police officer Asger Holm, demoted to deskwork, answers an emergency phone call from a kidnapped woman, he’s forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime becomes apparent. A ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him. This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to startling effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed. Director Gustav Möller’s Hitchcockian nailbiter expertly places the audience squarely in Holm’s mindspace. Winner of the Audience Award at Sundance, The Guilty is on the short list for an Oscar nomination as Best Foreign Language Film.
