In fine Hitchcockian (North by Northwest) fashion, Danish newcomer Gustav Möller serves up a breathtaking thriller based on a screenplay crafted with near-surgical precision. Premised in a series of 911 calls from a female kidnap victim, The Guilty keeps us on the edge of our seats as it cranks up the suspense. Möller’s nail-biting sound design agonizingly fills in the gaps, making this a masterful first feature, claustrophobic, harrowing and terrifyingly effective. Unforgettably intense.

“MOLLER MASTERFULLY RATCHETS UP TENSION WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF THE USUAL VISUAL AIDS, FORCING VIEWERS TO DUST OFF THEIR IMAGINATIONS AND PUT THEM TO WORK WITH CHILLINGLY EFFECTIVE RESULTS.”- The Hollywood Reporter
