In 2018, the Dane probably did not expect that Gustav Möller would make the leap to Hollywood with his first feature film. And yet, three years later, the “The Guilty” director is not only working on his first film with a Hollywood cast (“Snow Blind”) – his minimalist, but above all intensely oppressive debut work is also currently being made with a star cast relaunched.
The remake, which will be directed by Antoine Fuqua (“The Equalizer”, “Olympus Has Fallen”), will feature renowned actors such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke and Peter Sarsgaard. Before we get to see the star trio in the new edition exclusively on Netflix, the original is worth it today:
ServusTV shows “The Guilty” on September 10, 2022 at 8:15 p.m. Alternatively, the film is also available as a stream, for example on Amazon Prime Video:

At the center of “The Guilty” is the police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren), who was transferred to the emergency call center and one night receives the call from the frightened Iben (Jessica Dinnage). Iben has been kidnapped and during the conversation pretends to be on the phone with her daughter. At the same time, she tries to give Asger clues that should lead him to her. However, when the kidnapper threatens to get behind Iben’s game, Asger begins a race against time…
Do you have a weakness for reduced thrillers like “Don’t hang up!” or “Buried”? Then you shouldn’t miss “The Guilty” under any circumstances – because he even puts those films “easily in his pocket”, as our 4.5-star review of the film puts it:
“The Guilty” is not only strongly written and convincingly acted, but above all so powerfully staged that watching it becomes almost painful to experience. You finally want to be rooted in a film from start to finish? Then you’ve come to the right place at “The Guilty”.
