Animal Murderers Confronted In ‘The Hour of the Lynx’

Danish Dogme director Søren Kragh-Jacobsen, who most recently directed What No One Knows, will start principal photography September 24 on The Hour of the Lynx (I lossens time), a psychological thriller from an original story by Swedish author Per Olov Enquist, reports Screen Daily.

Danish actresses Sofie Grabol, of “The Killing” fame, will star with Signe Egholm Olsen in the $3.7 million (DKK 22 million) movie, which will shoot on the Danish isle of Funen with a visit to Northern Sweden from a script by Danish writers Jonas T Bengtsson and Tobias Lindholm (Submarino).

Gråbøl plays a vicar, who is looked up by a scientific researcher (Olsen) with a problem. She runs an experiment at a locked institution, helping violent, traumatised inmates by giving them the responsibility for pet animals.

One of them, who has murdered an elderly couple, has been closely devoted to a cat, until one day he kills it and tries to commit suicide. The vicar offers her help, but her voyage into his wounded soul will change her life forever.
