ARROW FILMS RELEASE 'A HIJACKING' IN CINEMAS

10/05/2013
Arrow Films release 'A Hijacking' in cinemas today.

The film is an intense thriller about a cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates when heading for harbour in the Indian Ocean. Amongst the men on board are the ship’s cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbæk) and the engineer Jan (Roland Møller), who along with the rest of the seamen are taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death. With the demand for a ransom of millions of dollars a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company (Søren Malling) and the Somali pirates.

The film is written and directed by the danish Tobias Lindholm who made his directorial debut with the tough prison drama R (co-directed with Michael Noer, 2010). As a scriptwriter Lindholm has worked with Thomas Vinterberg on the acclaimed drama SUBMARINO (winner of the Nordic Council Film Prize) and THE HUNT (2012) with Mads Mikkelsen in the leading role (winner, Best Actor, Cannes 2012). Since 2010 he has written several episodes for the internationally acclaimed and BAFTA winning BORGEN with Pilou Asbæk (BORGEN, A FAMILY) and Søren Malling (THE KILLING, BORGEN, A ROYAL AFFAIR) in leading roles. Dar Salim’s credits include GAME OF THRONES and THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE.
