From award-winning Danish director Gustav Moller, this nerve-jangling thriller unravels in real-time as an emergency dispatcher takes one fateful call.
Asger Holm is a cop who’s been demoted to working the phones after one too many on-duty transgressions. But when a terrified woman named Iben calls him to say she’s being abducted by her ex-husband, Asger will need to use every bit of his ingenuity to find her before it’s too late.
Taking place entirely within the confines of Asger’s emergency services bunker, The Guilty is a masterwork of dramatic tension from first-time director Gustav Möller. Eschewing external shots, secondary characters or even a musical score, The Guilty takes what remains and transforms it into a one-of-a-kind psychological thriller, where the slow drip of information, chilling sound design and a powerhouse performance from Jakob Cedergren as the tormented Asger will leave you guessing until the very end.
