A HI­JACK­ING/KAPRIN­GEN Di­rected by To­bias Lind­holm. Star­ring Soren Malling, Pilou As­baek, Gary Skjold­mose Porter

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Some months be­fore Tom Hanks faces up to con­tem­po­rary pi­rates in Paul Green­grass’s Cap­tain Phillips , To­bias Lind­holm (writer of the TV se­ries Bor­gen) of­fers up a pro­ce­dural take on the same sub­ject mat­ter in this hugely im­pres­sive Dan­ish fea­ture. It’s a cold piece; char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion is sketchy. But the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of de­tail and the au­then­tic bu­reau­cratic fug are bril­liantly main­tained. 15A cert, QFT, Belfast; IFI/Light House, Dublin, 103 min
