Movie review (Synopsis):
Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) is an accomplished headhunter, but also lives a double-life as an art thief to pay for his lifestyle. That he is only 1.68m tall gives him a Napoleon complex, and thus the need to impress his tall beautiful wife with lavish gifts, who would in fact prefer a child. Through his wife Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund) who opens a new art gallery in Oslo, he is introduced to the former mercenary Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Danish-Dutchman Claes Greve is the perfect candidate to Rogers new recruiting assignment, with his background as a former elite soldier and senior management in the electronics industry. Brown learns that Greve is in possession of a valuable painting by Rubens and sets out to steal it along with his sleazy aide, Ove, who is in love with a Russian prostitute. Roger now sees the chance to get rid of all his financial problems for good — and starts to plan the biggest and latest bargains. Watch online Headhunters movie in Full HD/DVD/ipod/divX quality
Headhunters stars the talented Aksel Hennie as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man.
In Details, Given the house owned by Robert Brown (Aksel Hennie) and his beautiful wife Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund) which could easily fit some page of Architectural Digest, and the fact that Oslo is Europe’s most expensive city, we wonder how Roger’s paychecks from employment as a corporate headhunter could pay the bills. And don’t forget his smashing suits and the jewelry he regularly bestows on his wife, a woman who is a head taller than Roger, the kind of woman that Rog hasn’t the self-confidence to think he can keep this person in his arms unless he gives her every material good he cannot afford—including his Lexus automobile. We are not surprised to discover from the opening scenes that Herr Brown is an art thief, one who meticulously plans not only an almost foolproof way to sneak into the houses of collectors, substitute copies after removing the canvas from the frames, and making off with an authentic Rubens or other artworks du jour. He has the help of Ove Kikerud (Elvind Sander), a security officer who appears to control every alarm system of the community’s upper class.
Complications develop when he meets the strikingly handsome Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Despite Roger’s suspicion that Greve has an eye for Diana which the gorgeous woman reciprocates, he invites him to apply for a top job at Pathfinder. Clas Greve has a military background involving tiny gadgets that can track people anywhere provided that one can attach such a trinket to the enemy’s hair or clothing. Greve, who owns the Rubens that could allow Roger to pay his mortgage if successfully heisted, is no easy victim and becomes, in fact, a headhunter in the more literal sense than Roger.
At a party, he is introduced to the suave Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, known to US/UK audiences from Game of Thrones). Roger spots an opportunity to end his criminal career with the biggest theft of all, the valuable Ruebens painting at Clas’s apartment. His accomplice, Ove, will sneak the painting out of the country and onto the black market.
On executing the plan, things go disastrously awry. What appeared to be a simple art heist leads to questions about Roger’s wife’s fidelity. Then the story becomes a chase across the Norwegian countryside as Roger evades a relentless assassin. As he runs, the tension, set-pieces and improbability escalate. Traps and schemes become ever more inventive and no one can be trusted. Headhunters evolves into something wild and unpredictable. Escapades involving skewered dogs, errant tractors, a large amount of faecal matter and flying cars are some of the obstacles added to the delirious brew.
The film talks about the importance for both headhunters and candidates of managing the big R: your reputation. That’s spot-on. Anyone interested in scoring a top position should remove any incriminating evidence from their past – just as Brown carefully conceals his tracks after each heist.
In his excellent new book, Death in a Cold Climate: A Guide to Scandinavian Crime Fiction, Barry Forshaw throws a revealing light on the phenomenon of the Nordic policier (interestingly, the French slang term for the crime films and the detective novel is “le polar”). He distinguishes between the different countries, between male and female writers, and sees a clear line reaching down from the shared background of bloody, painful Icelandic sagas and Nordic mythology, through the dark social and psychological explorations of Ibsen and Strindberg and on into the 20th-century experience of war, occupation, resistance, collaboration and neutrality guilt. Then there’s the clash between rapid social change and traditional ways and the postwar years bringing technical innovation, immigration, affluence and troubled socialist utopias.
Director Morten Tyldum has the ability to drop so many casual, almost negligent, details into the mix and then cleverly start layering them all together without any instance of letting up the pace. It is a showcase of escalation. He only ‘flashes back’ once to remind the audience of a particular detail, but otherwise he trusts us to keep up or fill in a blank or two between reveals. He also a flair for intense (but measured) bursts of violence, not unlike the Coen Brothers’ No Country For Old Men although things also occasional veer into the absurd “what the hell is going on?” territory of Burn After Reading. Headhunters is a perfect blend of cautious planning, earnest intent, and amusing comedic detachment. It shows off a noirish cynicism for peoples bad behavior when greed and power is at stake, but has the good sense to dangle the carrot of redemption to Roger after he is put through the wringer.
