Watch a clip from the Danish film ‘The Guilty’

The Danish film The Guilty will be released in the U.S. later this month, and to build up the release the film magazine Empire has released an exclusive clip from the film.

Directed by Gustav Moller, The Guilty follows alarm dispatcher and former police officer Asger Holm (played by Jacob Cedergren, Submarino). He answers a call from a woman who claims to be kidnapped, and when the call disconnects he desperately searches for the woman and the kidnapper, with only his phone as a tool for locating them. The whole film is shot within the emergency call centre. 

A U.S. poster has also been released for the film, but boy is it bad. It’s so over-the-top for the film, which is actually very stripped back and minimal. 

The Guilty

The Guilty is Denmark’s selection for the Academy Awards this year. It will be released in U.S. cinemas on the 26th of October 2018.
