90 MINUTES: The Headhunters Behind The Movie

 At last year's Toronto International Film Festival, Morten Tyldum's Headhunters was a smash with audiences and critics. Many of the folks involved with this film also contributed to Eva Sorhaug's 90 Minutes, which is playing at this year's Festival.

Askel Hennie cries over spilled milk in Headhunters.
Although the tone of the films is quite different, some of the cast and crew remain the same.

Askel Hennie, who portrays Trond in 90 Minutes, also serves as Executive Producer. About Hennie's role as Roger in Headhunters, Sound On Sight said he "paints a brilliant, intricate portrait of a man trapped deep within his image."

90 Minutes: Askel Hennie spilled the milk again?!
Hennie isn't the only Headhunters alum to be involved with Sorhaug's 90 Minutes. Vidar Flatauken (editor), Dylan Richard Hopkin (visual effects), and Monja Wiik (costumes) all worked on both films.

Additionally, Senior Production Designer Nina Bjerch Andresen has both Headhunters and 90 Minutes on her resume, and her work on the former film grabbed positive attention.

Below the Line noted how Andresen's "production design efficiently conveys a number of settings from the Scandinavian modern corporate offices at the beginning of the picture, to the richly decorated homes involved in several art heists and then to more rough-hewn interiors and exteriors as the film opens up."

Quiet Earth gushed "Headhunters is a beautiful film to watch. From the architecture featured in Roger’s home to the art that he steals, the production design is astounding."

With a roster of talent like this, we're sure 90 Minutes will be a feast for the eyes.
