A film in the mold of the epic David Lean films (Great Expectations; Lawrence Of Arabia)
Loosely based on a true story, In 1755, a commoner-turned-captain, Ludvig Kahlen, sets out to conquer the harsh, uninhabitable Danish heath with a seemingly impossible goal; to build a colony in the name of the King. Kahlen becines locked in a grisly land battle with a dastardly nobleman in Nikolaj Arcel’s entertaining, broad-brush epic, lent weight by its ever-reliable star, Mads Mikkelsen.
“The kind of ravishing, rousing epic we don’t really get much of anymore.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
“…a story that’s impressively broad in scope, rich in period detail, and vicious in its deconstruction of how wicked men will hold onto power at any cost. With another rich performance from the always-great Mads Mikkelsen, this kind of movie should work for anyone who misses the period epic drama.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
