The Danish entry for Best International film at the Oscars, this gripping historical epic stars Mikkelsen as Ludvig Kahlen, a veteran soldier who arrives in Northern Denmark in 1755 intending to establish a settlement and farm the barren heath granted to him by the king. But this land also happens to be under the rule of the merciless Frederick de Schinkel, a preening nobleman who realises the threat Kahlen represents to his power. De Schinkel wants a monopoly on this local land and will crush anyone who stands in his way. As Kahlen’s group begin to build a small community in this inhospitable place, de Schinkel swears vengeance and the confrontation between him and Kahlen promises to be as violent and intense as these two men.
