Denmark's Oscar Submission FOR Best Foreign Language Film 2019
When police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, confined to the police station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime slowly becomes more clear. The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him.

This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed. Director Gustav Möller expertly frames the increasingly messy proceedings against the clean Scandinavian sterility of the police department, while Cedergren's strong performance anchors the film and places the audience squarely in Holm's tragically flawed yet well-intentioned mindspace.

"This polished, well-calibrated thriller is a best-in-class showcase of the possibilities of cinema even with the most limited of resources. "
Tomris Laffly - ROGEREBERT.COM

"Möller squeezes every drop of tension out of the concept, and then finds ways to suck the air from your lungs again."
Brent McKnight - SEATTLE TIMES

"Above all else, THE GUILTY is an acting showcase for Cedergren, whose has a considerable presence in European film and television but has yet to gain visibility in the English-language world."
Eric Kohn - INDIEWIRE
