Revenge is a dish best served very, very cold indeed...

When placid, hard-working snowplough driver Nils Dickman’s only son is found dead from an apparent drug overdose, he decides to take revenge against those responsible...a ruthless drug gang. He’s outnumbered for sure, but Nils knows the terrain... A hugely enjoyable, gruesome, ingenious, brilliantly-cast, pitch-black comedy set against the hugely cinematic white landscape of a rural Norwegian winter. Like Death Wish set in Fargo, but funnier...and bloodier! [15]

    Turned up on spec for this showing, thinking that Norwegian movies are rarely sold out, so wrong, had to wait for ticket returns! Grateful that we were admitted as this was an awesome cinematic experience. Pacy, connected, well composed, a joy to watch. Visceral and bloody at times, but always involving and watchable. Also very tense yet funny. Good acting all round.
