A Hijacking is a film that was released in 2012 and is best described as a Danish thriller. It is directed by Tobias Lindholm and stars Soren Malling and John Philip Asbaek. It is ninety-nine minutes long, in Danish, and had a theatrical release in Venice and Denmark during September. The plot involves a Danish cargo ship that is invaded and taken over by Somali pirates during an intense hijacking sequence. The Somali pirates enter negotiations with Denmark’s government while the ship’s crew attempts to survive the four month process. The plot is mostly concerned with the slow pace at which negotiations begin, continue, and drag on to the detriment of hostages and their families.
