The Salvation is one of two new Danish westerns, which focus on European immigrants adjusting to their new lands. Here, a peaceful settler (Mads Mikkelsen) in 1870s America is pushed to the limit by members of a notorious gang and vows to take vengeance without the help of his cowardly community. Co-written by Anders Thomas Jensen and directed by former Dogma95 director Kristian Levring, the film pays homage to classic westerns. Levring stated that “I made a Western that’s a myth about Westerns.” Contains graphic violence. (2K DCP presentation)
