The Guilty (Den Skyldige) (2018 Feature Film)

Gustav MÖLLER | Denmark | 2018 | color | DCP | 85' | Danish | e.s.

OPENING FILM 2018_ SCENES OF SENSES_A single space, a great lead, a compelling script and a nail-biting soundtrack is all debut director Gustav Möller needs to captivate his audience for 90 minutes. Asger Holm is fabulous as the tortured, headstrong cop hell bent on solving a disturbing phone call during a shift manning the emergency line.

A police station somewhere in Denmark. Police officer Asger Holm is taking the emergency calls tonight. His shift is almost over. This isn’t his normal job. To his chagrin, he’s been sentenced to it whilst awaiting a court case. His disinterest is palpable as he routinely deals with the callers – until he is called by Iben. The young woman is panicking. She’s being kidnapped. 

The thriller The Guilty joins an illustrious line of films centering around one or more phone calls; but was any of these ever as nail-biting as Gustav Möller’s feature film debut, that unfolds in real-time? A few actors, a single space and a clever script: Möller makes intelligent, efficient use of these few elements. Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is a man apt to jump to conclusions, and then act upon them. But is that such a good idea? Winner IFFR Audience Award and IFFR Youth Jury Award 2018.
