The Guilty Reżyseria Gustav Möller
Like the best podcasts and radio plays, the stripped-down Danish thriller “The Guilty” paints such vivid pictures with words that, afterward, we’re not exactly sure what we saw and what was merely imagined. Imagination, though, is so rarely asked of movie audiences these days that the daring of the first-time feature director, Gustav Moller, can hardly be overstated.

The premise—with its emphasis on confinement and solitude—cries out for the squarish Academy ratio, but director Gustav Möller shot this in wide-screen for no good reason; the images, all but defined by their wasted space, tend to slacken the tension engendered by the narrative.

The viewer’s ability to follow a movie with the sound off is seen as proof of a director’s skill, but The Guilty, which could easily be a radio play or podcast, displays obvious talent on Möller’s part—from his direction of the large, unseen supporting cast to the background noise of sloshing tires and drumming rain that evokes both an unseen rainstorm and Asger’s own internal tumult.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film The Guilty

    Before we all roll our eyes about another one-character/one-location movie, let us take a look at The Guilty. It's by no means perfect, but is executed with precision. An immersive central performance by someone you don't want to like but can't help but feel for, held together a by stellar, textured sound design - this one sets its hooks in quickly.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Guilty

    I think I'm starting to grow averse to these 'one man, one room' films and their inherently limited setups. That said, I enjoyed "The Guilty" a great deal more than 2013's similarly-executed "Locke," and the movie is aided by some of the sharpest and most immersive sound design of the year. The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, sure, but I'm just glad Asger hasn't been on the line when I've dialed 911.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Guilty

    Dir. Möller tries the hypothesis that, by eradicating the information and emotion at maximum level, it gets deeply minimal and emotional at the same time. "Den Skyldige" accomplishes it in the complicated, thrilling and breathtakingly taut way. With the meticulous sound design, gloomy exuberance of facial expression by Jakob Cedergren give verisimilitude to this film. My ears are uttely crying in best way possible.

  • Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Guilty

    Very efficient concept-thriller that works through the sound effects and nervous phone conversations. The off-screen will always make the viewer imagine things in a certain way and make him work more actively which is for sure a good point. You read everywhere that the film is cleverly written and it is true to a certain extend. The policeman character i thought was hard to believe. Still very worth the watch.

  • Palmat's rating of the film The Guilty

    Excellent thriller directed by a skillful director who makes the tried "one-location-movie" trope as tense and interesting as you could wish for. Cedergren plays the main character with both bravado and vulnerability to great effect and really captures the tragic arc of Asger. For those seeking basic thrills and entertainment need not apply because this movie goes to some very dark and disturbing places.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Guilty

    In which a band of Danish filmmakers do more with one room and a series of phone calls than most Hollywood thrillers. The concept abstracts danger, making its hero both manipulator and helpless voyeur. The worst I can say is that a lot of the drama is far more ordinary than the formal concept. But it twists just when you think it's narrowing, and has something critical to say about a society of civil servants.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Guilty

    Moller grips his viewers with tense, skillful camerawork, a plot sprinkled with clever revelations and, ultimately, with a central moral question of no easy resolution. More than solving the mystery, The Guilty is more interested in exploring the frail psyche of its protagonist, and how even the best of intentions can lead to abuses of power with disastrous consequences.

  • Tigrão's rating of the film The Guilty

    A superb low-budget thriller, that possesses the rare trait of functioning almost entirely on sound and off-screen imagination.
