Cri de Coeur


In this fast-paced thriller Brian de Palma directs international stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Carice van Houten and Guy Pearce.

In this fast-paced thriller, legendary director Brian De Palma weaves a multi-national tale about Christian, a Copenhagen police officer seeking justice for his partner’s murder by a mysterious man called Ezra. In a world wracked by terror and suspicion, Christian and Alex, a fellow cop and his late partner’s mistress, embark on a mission to hunt Ezra down, but are unwittingly caught in a cat and mouse chase with a duplicitous CIA agent who is using Ezra as a pawn to trap an international terroristic network. Soon Christian and Alex are racing against the clock not only seeking revenge, but to save their own lives.
From the frosty cities of Scandinavia to the sun-drenched landscapes in southern Europe, De Palma sets up a spectacular battle of multiple opposing forces and leaves the audience breathless until the climactic moment when we learn who will be the last person to survive.
