Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) is a corporate headhunter who lives way above his means. But he supports his lavish lifestyle by targeting his corporate customers to steal valuable paintings and replace them with cheap fakes. He’s got a hot one this time, but he misjudges the client he’s trying to rip off, which is a headhunter of a different sort. By risking all for the big score, Roger may be out of time in this action, adventure movie, filled with suspense.

This international thriller comes from Norway. It’s a decent attempt, and the story isn’t bad. The whole subject did not appeal to me greatly, hence the lower rating, but I do have to admit that for a Norwegian film, they didn’t do too bad. It’s got a lot of mystery and suspense around it, and a good amount of action. There is a romance story too, with the usual troubled marriage and conflict and trying to work it out, but the romance angle didn’t appeal much either. Basically it’s a challenge to read the subtitles, and to get into the story, but the movie is done well enough to be of interest for those who like this kind of film. All in all, it’s a middling effort, and only recommended for those who are interested in this type of movie.
