Description

Your ticket includes a recorded Filmmaker Q&A following the film.

One of the most exhilarating and irresistible films of the year, this fabulous tragicomedy of fate starts off as a drama, mutates into a conspiracy thriller, and then swerves into wild black comedy. Military man Markus (Mads Mikkelsen as you have never seen him before), returns home to care for his teenage daughter after his wife is killed in a tragic train accident. But when a survivor of the wrecked train surfaces claiming foul play, Markus begins to suspect his wife was murdered. Helped by a group of endearing misfits, he embarks on a mission to find those responsible. The film is a fable, set in a framework of realism. It’s the tale of a group of people, all of whom have lost their sense of security as well as their lives’ foundation. But in meeting each other they eventually find love, self-respect, trust and the feeling of belonging to a place. (Alissa Simon)
