Gustav Möller's nail-biting Danish thriller about an emergency services phone operator won the World Cinema audience award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

WINNER: WORLD CINEMA AUDIENCE AWARD, SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 2018

NOMINATED: BEST ACTOR, GOLDEN GLOBE 2019

A sympathetic ear and willingness to help is what you expect when you dial 000. That’s not what happens when Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) answers. “It’s your own fault, isn’t it?” he tells one caller. But this demoted cop with a bad attitude springs attentively to life after receiving a call from Iben, a distressed mother who claims she’s been kidnapped by her violent ex-husband. With a precision-tooled screenplay and flawless central performance, this Scandi crime drama, Möller’s mightily impressive first feature, delivers breath-quickening suspense without ever leaving the claustrophobic confines of Asger’s office.

Gustav Möller masterfully ratchets up tension without the benefit of the usual visual aids, forcing viewers to dust off their imaginations and put them to work with chillingly effective results. THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
