Wildland is the impressive debut feature by filmmaker Jeanette Nordahl, who cut her teeth as assistant director on hit TV show Borgen. Pairing one of Denmark’s most celebrated actresses Sidse Babbett Knudsen (Borgen, Westworld, and most recently seen at DCA in Limbo) with newcomer 17-year-old Sandra Guldberg Kampp, Wildland offers a refreshingly female perspective on the Scandi noir genre.
“a refreshingly female perspective on the Scandi noir genre”
Following the death of her mother, Ida (Kampp) moves in with her aunt (Knudsen) and her adult sons. Though her aunt’s home is filled with physical tenderness and love, the family leads a violent and criminal life. While this set-up may seem familiar to anyone who has seen David Michod’s 2010 film Animal Kingdom, Wildland’s focus on its female characters feels compelling and original, and the film has a few narrative tricks up its sleeve, while the frank approach to the story’s criminal elements lends the film an atmosphere of disturbingly believability. Kampp is particularly captivating as Ida, her face becoming an expression of the emotional and psychological reality behind her character’s quiet nature. Wildland is a compelling calling card for its director, and is an enthralling, brooding and utterly gripping thriller that packs a powerful emotional punch.
