Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Audience Award, selected by Denmark as the country’s official entry into the Oscar Foreign Language Film race. A nerve-shredder, for sure.

I enjoyed this movie. This is not a movie you would want to watch many times but it's better to watch it in one take without interruptions because every detail is important and as the story progresses you feel more and more captivated and eager to find out how it's going to end. And the movie is all in Danish so you'll have to read subtitles.

Don't think this was a great movie but it was also not a bad movie. It was an interesting movie I think. 95% of the movie is 1 guy talking on either the phone or police radio but works nicely. Plus, there is a couple of twists near the end that I did not see coming. You will most likely have to read the subtitles.

Great movie! I wouldn't of thought a film taking place in one room with basically one actor would grab my attention and keep it for the entire film. Great concept.

Wow! Gripping and yet very simple - shot completely within a "911" style call centre so pretty much everything is left to your imagination. I highly recommend it if you are ok with subtitles (I had to put down my complicated knitting and pick up a simple work ;->

I love European cinema and discovering hidden gems..what sounds like a one man play quickly be omes an engrossing story with a few surprises and an excellent performance by the lead actor...very entertaining and a bit different from what you may be used to..but THATS what the Danish swedish netherland film world offers you..highly recommended

This performance by Jakob Cedergren as Asger was outstanding.

The movie is about the conversation of a police officer answering the phone in the Emergency Service Center. You have to use your imagination to think what was happening on the other side of the phone. An entertaining movie. Well worth watching.

Tense with surprising turns in an emergency call center. The movie also gives a good insight into the conflict of personal emotions, instincts and policies.

A tour de force. The 'action' takes place entirely in our imagination as we follow the phone dialogue of a troubled street cop who has been placed on temporary duty as an emergency services dispatcher pending a disciplinary hearing. The powerful performance by Jakob Cedergren is matched by a script that is strong on ellipsis, leaving it to the audience to fill in the parallel plot lines. Riveting.
