The Guilty (15)

2018 Denmark, directed by Gustav Möller, 85 minutes

We have become familiar with Danish drama on the small screen through programmes such as Borgen and The Killing. Feature films from Denmark have crept under the radar rather. The Guilty is a claustrophobic drama set in an emergency call centre. A serving police officer is awaiting trial for an alleged offence. Meanwhile he is away from active duty and is taking calls from the public. Some are trivial, others may be serious. For a streetwise officer like Asger Holm this should be a straightforward assignment – and it is, until a call comes in from a woman who is clearly distressed and frightened. If you like this sort of drama, this one isn’t to be missed – it scored 99% on Tomatometer
