Headhunters @ The Film Club
I've not read any Jo Nesbo but Ann has and she enjoyed them and I've heard good things about this film.
On Tuesday 27 November the Southside Film Festival will be screening Headhunters as part of their new Film Club in partnership with The Glad Cafe.
The film will start at 8pm, doors at 7:30pm. Tickets are £6 (£5 for concessions*) and are available on the night from the Glad Cafe and also online from Tickets Scotland (search by date or for Southside Film, with £1 booking fee).
Headhunters (subtitled) is a 2011 Norwegian-German film based on Jo Nesbø's novel Hodejegerne (The Headhunters). It was critically acclaimed, described by the Guardian as "a cool, brutal, deeply Scandinavian thriller" and follows in the recent success of others in the 'Scandi crime' genre.
Synopsis: Roger Brown is an accomplished headhunter living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.
