Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green star in this a rip-roaring, blood-spattered saga about a Danish soldier who moves to the American Wild West and undertakes a journey of sin and redemption.

Mads Mikkelsen unleashes a maelstrom of bloodshed in this stylish Danish twist on the classic American Western. When an ex-soldier moves to the town Black Creek, a Wild West burgh so rough that the undertaker is also mayor, he incurs the wrath of a sadistic gang leader. Director Kristian Levring – known for The King Is Alive and as one of the original Dogme95 members – delivers the genre goods, exploding the screen with eye-popping action and dazzlingly dramatic frontier landscapes.
