Synopsis

Well-to-do horse merchant Michael Kohlhaas is a loving family man leading a peaceful existence until a ruthless nobleman steals his horses. Kohlhaas resorts to extremes after these crimes destroy his livelihood, igniting a rampage through the countryside in his quest for justice.

Our take

As gritty and austere as it is beautiful and explosive, Age of Uprising tells a sweeping story of personal justice coinciding with the decline of feudalism. Mads Mikkelsen’s brooding intensity matches the vengeful determination of the protagonist, resulting in a fiercely compelling performance.
