Critic’s Pick: ‘A Hijacking’

Thelma Adams
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Given the title is “ A Hijacking ,” when the film opens with a bearded teddy bear of a ship’s cook calling his wife and daughter back home in Denmark to say he’ll see them in a few days, we know Daddy’s not returning any time soon. And, faster than you can say three-egg omelet, Somali pirates with automatic weapons board the Danish cargo vessel in the Indian Ocean bound for Mumbai and hold it for ransom.

A Hijacking

Film Guide

  • Excerpt: Taut and considered, psychological drama doesn’t come much better than Tobias Lindholm’s romance free tale of modern day piracy A Hijacking . Following on closely from the critical success of Vinterberg’s The Hunt (2012), which Lindholm also penned, this account of Somali pirates boarding a Danish container ship for ransom and the extended negotiation process that ensues mines much of the same tonal ground from within a very different narrative context.

  • Conclusion: A slow burner; intense, utterly engrossing and believable.
