A film by Arnaud des Pallières

Nominated for six César Awards, including Best Actor for Mads Mikkelsen.

An epic drama set in 16th century France against a backdrop of feudalism in decline, Age of Uprising: The Legend Michael Kohlhaas stars Mads Mikkelsen (Valhalla Rising, Hannibal) as a well-to-do horse merchant who resorts to fanatical and violent extremes to obtain justice after a nobleman openly and illegally humiliates him by stealing two of his horses. Adapted from Heinrich von Kleist’s novella, a classic of German Romanticism.

Handsomely made and beautifully photographed. Mikkelsen himself brings a note of proud and smouldering handsomeness to the role.The Guardian

4 Stars! A brilliantly-realized period revenge drama. —Cine-Vue
