Storyline

Martin Vinge, (35), former notorious journalist, now successful headhunter with a complicated personal life, is in all confidentiality contacted by 85 year-old N.F. Sieger, S.E.O. of Denmark's largest shipping company and oil empire. Sieger hires Martin to find an alternative heir to the firm instead of his son, Daniel Sieger, who for a long time has been destined to take the company into the next era. Martin starts coming up with suitable names for the position, but discovers that he has actually been entangled in a larger impenetrable power game aimed at deciding what is really going to happen to the company; a brutal power struggle that puts an intense pressure on Martin and his private life and relationships.

Well done
13 February 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Normally I don't really go for this kind of movies but I'm glad I gave it a shot. The story start a little slow but then the tension builds up and before you know you're completely into the story. I don't really like multinational businesses and their lobbying and this movie is a good example of it. With money you get power and with power you can do whatever you want and get away with it. The actors are all good, the filming is also good.this movie proves that Danish can also produce a good thriller without too much costs. You can't go wrong with this one if you like business-thrillers. I probably only will watch it once in my life but I'm glad I did it.
