HEADHUNTERS stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway's most accomplished headhunter. Roger is 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.

HEADHUNTERS is based on Jo Nesbø’s best-selling thriller from 2008.

“IT'S ON MY SHORT LIST OF THE MOST ENJOYABLE MOVIES IN RECENT MEMORY. Smart, funny, scary and surprising – A ONE-OF-A-KIND THRILLER.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“A WILD AND BLOODY ADRENALINE RUSH OF A MOVIE.” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times

“FEROCIOUSLY ENTERTAINING.” – Time Out NY

“DELECTABLE. A Hitchcockian kind of thriller that gives you the time and space to laugh with perverse delight at your own helplessness. Director Tyldum is marvelously in tune with his material.” – David Edelstein, New York

“***1/2. CRISP, STUNNING AND MANIACALLY CLEVER.” – Alynda Wheat, People

“THE RARE THRILLER THAT MANAGES TO BE CONSISTENTLY SURPRISING WITHOUT SACRIFICING COHERENCE.” – Sam Adams, The Onion

“SEE IT BEFORE THE HOLLYWOOD REMAKE GETS IT WRONG> The sex, nudity and violence are nonstop, but that’s what makes it exciting.” – V.A. Musetto, NY Post

“THE FILM LEFT ME DIZZY FROM ENTERTAINMENT. Gripping, gleeful and unpredictable, this is a mainstream crowd-pleaser through and through.” – Joshua Miller, CHUD

“Presents something wholly original and awesome that’s impossible not to find invigorating and enthralling.” - Abe Fried-Tanzer, ShockYa

“A PERVERSELY ENTERTAINING RIDE.” – Kevin Lally, Film Journal
