Kidnapning (Frederik Meldal Nørgaard, DK, 2017)

Bertram’s uncle, a petty criminal, hurls him and the whole family into the kidnapping of a rich man’s son to get money for a new flat after they’ve been kicked out by the bailiff. But things don’t go quite as planned. The film is an action-packed gangster comedy for the whole family, a kind of “Ocean’s Eleven” for children and the young at heart.
