Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is a demoted police officer confined to answering emergency phone calls. His painfully quiet night takes a sharp turn when he answers a panicked call from an abducted woman. Tied to his desk, he is forced to rely on others to be his eyes and ears. As the situation escalates, he discovers that not everything or everyone is what they seem to be.

This intense Danish thriller grabs you from the start and forces you to watch at the edge of your seat. Unfolding in real time, using a single location it throws you down a rabbit hole of suspense and nail-biting tension. It's no wonder it has racked up 28 awards, and 33 nominations, even Rotton Tomatoes is singing its praises. I am not familiar with Jakob Cedergren's previous work, but his performance in The Guilty is brilliant. Director Gustav Möller creates an entire world within the walls of a sterile Scandinavian police department. One of the rare films that prove you don't need a blockbuster budget to create a magnificent cinematic experience. What I also loved about this film is that most of it entirely depends on your imagination. It's brilliant.

The Guilty is definitely worth a watch, its intense, clever and well acted. You can watch it now at New Farm Cinemas in Brisbane and select cinemas around Australia.
