R (Tobias Lindholm / Michael Noer, 2010, Denmark) - Scandinavian Crime Movies

Mon, November 4, 2013 | Conference Room BUR 337

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


The R of the title stands for the young protagonist, Rune, fearlessly played by Pilou Asbæk. Imprisoned for violent assault, he's a cocky, good-looking young man placed in the hardcore ward, where his survival depends on quickly learning the prison's parallel world of rules, honor, and obligations. R also stands for Rachid, a young Muslim prisoner who becomes Rune's friend and accomplice, defying the rigid racial stratifications among the inmates. R is a raw and brilliant movie about imprisonment. Not to be missed! Directors: Tobias Lindholm, Michael Noer. 96 min.
