Original Title: Svartur Á Leik
Writer: Óskar Thór Axelsson
Main Cast: Thorvaldur David Kristjansson, Johannes Haukur Johannesson, Damon Younger, Maria B. Bjarnardottir
Based around real events, Black’s Game tells the story of how Iceland’s drug trade went from a bunch of rival gangs in the 1990s to an organised and professional industry as the millennium turned. Executive produced by Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive and Pusher) and Hostel producer Chris Briggs, Óskar Thór Axelsson’s film is as violent and mired in brutality as its pedigree would suggest but also possesses a slick storytelling style that borrows from Ted Demme’s Blow, Guy Ritchie’s Snatch and Jonas Akerlund’s Spun.
