Most of the action in cargo ship hijacking thriller A Hijacking occurs over the telephone. The emotional stakes are set in the opening moments by a conversation between soon-to-be-hostage Mikkel (Pilou Aesbæck) and his wife and daughter, and later raised through a fraught and highly affecting second conversation between the two parties. That these two conversations occur hundreds of days, and about forty onscreen minutes apart, yet mark the only contact this family has is telling of the quality of control and construction present in Tobias Lindholm's immaculately thought out thriller.
