From Ole Bornedal, the director of The Substitue (Vikaren), a film AgentOrange loved, comes a thriller about a good brother, and a very bad one.

In DELIVER US FROM EVIL, the happily married couple Johannes and Pernille and their two children return to Johannes’ home town in a province in Jutland. Johannes is a lawyer, Pernille a school teacher, and they return to the rural bliss to devote themselves entirely to the family and the calm and quiet life close to nature, outside the big city. Helping them renovate the newly bought house is Alain, a torture victim from the Balkans. He’s just now regaining his faith in life and is working to re-establish a proper existence.

Johannes’ brother, Lars, is the complete opposite. He’s lived in the village all his life and now works as a truck driver – at least when he isn’t hanging out at the local pub, getting drunk or engaged in a brawl. He’s just made his girlfriend, Scarlett, pregnant, which makes him realize that he wants another life – a better life. But fate has other plans for him. Far out on the main road, he accidentally runs over the elderly woman Anna with his truck. He manages to place fake evidence that points towards Alain… and then all Hell brakes loose, transforming the peaceful rural bliss into a war zone.
