Arnaud des Pallières

Michael Kohlhaas

Pallières' latest follows the plight of its eponymous hero (Denmark's Mads Mikkelsen), a happy and prosperous family man and horse trader who suffers an injustice at the hands of an arrogant young baron. Kohlhaas seeks redress legally, only to be rebuffed and threatened.

- Andrew Pulver, The Guardian

Mads Mikkelsen is at his most saturnine as a Robin Hood-like rebel of the sixteenth century in Michael Kohlhaas, a film perhaps best described as a historical Western.
