The Exception (2021)

  • Thriller
  • 1h 55m

A wonderful performance by Borgen star Sidse Babett Knudsen combined with an engagingly provocative skewering of office politics are just two reasons to watch this stylish Danish-language workplace thriller.

Iben (Danica Curcic), Malene (Amanda Collin), Anne-Lise (Knudsen), and Camilla (Lene Maria Christensen) work together in a non-profit NGO in Copenhagen that specialises in genocide and crimes against humanity. Their daily routine is marked by personal tensions, petty squabbles and power struggles. When Iben and Malene each receive death threats over email, they suspect a Serbian war criminal whom they have recently publicly profiled in a series of articles. However, when a case of bullying in the office escalates, their suspicions start to turn toward each other.

Based on the best-selling novel by Christian Jungersen, The Exception is a tense psychological thriller about the lies we tell to each other, and to ourselves.
