Movie Info

Simon Staho directed this Danish-Icelandic thriller, scripted by Stahho in collaboration with lead actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau. Copenhagen-born Ossy (Waldau) arrives in the suburbs to intrude on the family life of former friend Jimmy (Mads Mikkelsen). When they were pals at age 18, Jimmy accidentally killed a man. The two then left Denmark and traveled to the Far East, engaging in drug smuggling in Thailand until Jimmy departed, settling down in Reykjavik with his Icelandic wife Anna (Palina Jonsdottir). Ossy's arrival spells trouble, as Jimmy is caught between his devotion to Anna and Ossy's proposal of a drug deal. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival and the 1998 San Sebastian Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Vildspor (Wildside)


Yeah! I got them (RT) to add [i]Vildspor [/i]to their list of Mads movies!! [IMG][/IMG] This was a great performance by both Mads and Nikolaj...I searched everywhere trying to find it and ended up having to order it from Denmark....but it is SO worth it! The relationship between the two characters was so emotional...frustrating, maddening, sad.... It's not light-hearted fare, but I highly recommend it!
