Opening with a late-night mass shooting on a bus, this tense film has that Danish feel Rev loves.
An unnerving exploration of psychopathology, personal history and individual accountability, Those Who Kill is a tight, lean and urgent thriller.
Detective Katrine Ries Jensen and legal psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer form a special unit at the Copenhagen Police, investigating serial killings. As a case from Schaeffer's past crops up they’re thrust into an intense race against time as the killings continue and the case becomes increasingly personal.
Great on the big screen Those Who Kill captures a sense of “in the moment and on the scene”. Filled with gripping action and unexpected narrative turns it’s easy to see why Director Birger Larsen was Oscar nominated for his 1998 short Sweethearts. The palpable tension is delivered by an ensemble cast with taut naturalism that eschews glamour in favour of a real truth thanks to cinematographer Eric Kress whose works include The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Lars Von Trier’s Kingdom 2.
