Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round) reunites with Anders Thomas Jensen, one of Denmark’s most renowned filmmakers, in this pitch-black screwball comedy of revenge. With a perfect balance of brutal violence, heartfelt tragedy, and oddball humour, Jensen’s film carries viewers on a captivating ride of absurdity.
Career soldier Markus cuts short his deployment to care for his teenage daughter, Mathilde, after his wife is killed in a train crash. But then he has visitors: a fretful statistician and his hacker friends, who believe the crash was no accident – according to their calculations, it was masterminded by the outlaw bikie gang Riders of Justice to silence a witness who was about to testify against them. The PTSD-afflicted Markus needs no further excuse to unleash his very particular set of skills, but can he hide his vigilante campaign from Mathilde?
