The sharpshooter

Franz Ernst, Tom Hedegaard, Denmark, 1977

88 min.DK/Feature

Novelist Anders Bodelsen and filmmaker Franz Ernst co-wrote the script and Tom Hedegaard was at the helm of this political thriller, the engine of which runs on the heated for or against nuclear power debate of the 1970s. A fanatic is inspired by a journalist's public statement in favor of a legitimate taking up arms in what you consider a just cause. The fanatic happens to be also a crack shot.
