A Hijacking

The cargo ship MV Rozen is heading for harbour when it is hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. Amongst the men on board are the ship's cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbaek) and the engineer Jan (Roland Moller), 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 and the Somali pirates. Intense thriller inspired by real events. With Soren Malling. "If 'A Hijacking' were an American movie, it would be widely proclaimed as one of the best films of the year." - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
