IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE

Director: HANS PETTER MOLAND

FILM INFO: 116 minutes, Norway, 2014, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema,


This film closes on Thursday, September 25th. 

In Hans Petter Moland’s pitch black comedy, ‘Citizen of the Year’ Nils Dickman (Stellan Skarsgård) lives a quiet life, clearing the local roads of snow. When his son is found dead from an overdose, Nils refuses to believe his son was an addict, and is proved right when it transpires that it was carefully staged murder. Vowing vengeance, Nils tracks down those involved, killing his way up the ladder of an organisation headed by The Count (Pål Sverre Hagen), a man with his own problems, including a fractious relationship with his ex-wife, and who believes Nils’ actions are actually the work of a rival gang, headed by Bruno Ganz, trying to wrest control of his operation.

Skarsgård is as reliably excellent as always, moving from meek and mild-mannered to implacable killer over the course of a film that delights in its characters’ bad behaviour. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
