The exact details of what took place while Talib Ben Hassi (19) was in police custody remain unclear. Police officers, Jens and Mike, are on routine patrol in Svalegården's ghetto when news of Talib's death comes in over the radio, igniting uncontrollable, pent-up rage in the ghetto's youth, who lust for revenge. Suddenly, the two officers find themselves fair game and must fight tooth and claw to find a way out.

User Reviews

Brilliant suspense thriller with amazing acting
2 November 2020 | by fergal-952-215154See all my reviews

Hard to say just how good this movie is. It is a brilliant character study on one level and deeply provocative on another. It is a buddy cop movie like I have never seen before; and the first few minutes give no indication of what is about to unfold. The story arc is simplicity, complexity and elegance all mixed together. The main characters do not say too much - they don't have to - the story catches you up in a whirlwind and does not lay you down until the final scene. I will not spoil it for you - suffice to say this is one of the best movies to come out of Denmark in a long time. The acting of the three main characters is also sublime.
