Jackpot (Arme Riddere)
Kyrre Hellum, Henrik Mestad, Marie Blokhus, Mads Ousdal, Andreas Cappelen / Fiction / Norwegian
At a plastic Christmas tree factory in Norway, three dangerous ex-cons and their supervisor win 1.7 million kroner on the pools. As trust and friendship quickly dissolve, guns are loaded, knives are sharpened, and the division of the money begins... With echoes of Tarantino and The Coen Brothers, Magnus Martens’ Jackpot, (based on a story by popular Norwegian author Jo Nesbø) is slick, ultra-violent black comedy, with a mischievous plot that twists and turns right up until the final gunshot rings out.
