RIDERS OF JUSTICE kicks off with a series of sad events: a bicycle is stolen, a data analyst is fired and a serious train accident takes place. At first glance, the series seems coincidental, but data analyst Otto suspects that the events are interrelated. Together with his eccentric friends Lennart and Emmenthaler and professional soldier Markus – who lost his wife in the train accident – he starts to investigate the case, in search of justice.
As a screenwriter for filmmakers such as Susanne Bier and Kristian Levring, Anders Thomas Jensen is a man of many trades. As a director, however, he constituted an unmistakable style of his own. Like his most well-known films ADAM’S APPLES and MEN & CHICKEN, his latest film is a black, slightly absurd revenge comedy with an insane plot and a wonderful performance by Mikkelsen. RIDERS OF JUSTICE once again outlines that Jensen’s films never wander into boring territory.

Anders Thomas Jensen, Denemark, 2020, 116 min. Danish spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Mads Mikkelsen, Andrea Heick Gadeberg, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Gustav Lindh, Nicolas Bro.
