Araluen Arthouse Cinema: The Keeper of Lost Causes

(Denmark) – Rated MA15+ – English Subtitles
From the screen writer of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and based on the bestselling book by Jussi Alder-Olsen. Following a shootout that left his 2 partners respectively dead & paralyzed, Chief Detective Carl Morck is assigned to the newly established Dept Q, a department for old, terminated cases. The Department consists only of himself and his new assistant Assad. Although they get explicit orders to only read and sort through the cases, only a single day passes before Carl’s subborn nature throws them headfirst into the mystery of Merete Lynggaard’s disappearance: a well-known female politician who vanished 5 years ago from a ferry. The only witness is her brain-damaged brother who was round on the car deck, screaming at the top of his lungs. The case was put to rest as an apparent suicide. Unconvinced by this explanation Carl and Assad venture on a journey that will take them deep into the uncercurrent of abuse and malice that lurks beneath the polished surface of Scandinavia.
