Markus, who has to go home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. It seems like an accident until a mathematics geek, who was also a fellow passenger on the train, and his two colleagues show up.
Markus, a deployed military man, has to go home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. It seems to be plain bad luck - but it turns out that it might have been a carefully orchestrated assassination, which his wife ended up being a random casualty of.
Not the first time that Nikolai Lie Kaas is playing a character called Otto. He played Otto Hvidmann in "The boys from St. Petri" (1991) which was also Lie Kaas' first big screen appearance. See more »
A bunch of misfits, most with anger issues, try to go on a rampage, led by a PTSD-suffering Mads Mikkelsen.
This movie features many of the best male danish actors. It has strong perfomances and a laugh out riot dialogue, especially from the supporting cast, that you have to hear to believe.
It's not a revenge-movie per se, but deals with issues like parenthood, friendship, and forgiveness. Because of this, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and think it's the best movie to come out from Denmark in years.
