Fancy a Danish Western? With The Salvation, director Kristian Levring has successfully created an unlikely, thrilling new genre, harnessing together the lean, dirty faced shootouts, chases and lawlessness of Clint Eastwood’s westerns with highly stylised visuals and a back story that suggests a reimagining of how the west was civilised by old world settlers. Mads Mikkelsen plays Jon, a Danish ex-soldier turned frontiersman who meets his wife and son from the old country after years of separation. As they travel to the ranch he has established, they are joined on the stagecoach by a drunken outlaw and his sidekick, and all hell breaks loose. We loved it!

“Salivatingly good. A hell of a lot of fun. Mads Mikkelsen is intoxicating to watch.” (Twitch).

“Kristian Levring’s film is a western in the old school, complete with burning heat, bitter revenge and Mads Mikkelson’s Lee Van Cleef-style farmer.” (The Guardian)
