Every Friday this summer we will recommend different available movies you may enjoy, late summer nights. We introduce 4 films every week and promise several great film moments!
This week we’ve lined up two action films but balance it out with a documentary about a spectacular artist and a visit to a magical chocolate factory.
R is the brutal story about Rune who’s put in one of Denmark’s most dangerous prisons. Through Rune’s first days we’re given an insight into the hopelessness and the game that takes place behind the walls of a maximum security prison where most of the inmates are serving long sentences and where you have to choose sides in order to survive.
Roland Møller who plays “Mureren” visited Kosmorama in 2015 with the film Land of Mine but it was during the production of R, where he was brought in as an advisor, that his talent as an actor was discovered. Møller is today a public critic of the politics of criminal justice in Denmark. He’s also starred in multiple movies and won several awards.
R is available on Netflix og TV2 Sumo.
