Today is the German Premier of "GLETSCHERGRAB" (OPERATION NAPOLEON, international title) the project I had the pleasure of being a part of playing the role of Ambassador Russell with Game of Thrones star Iain Glen. I was very happy to participate in the second project with Elsani Film and the first for Splendid Film and Saga Film. The film stars Iain Glen (G0T, Resident Evil), Jack Fox (Sandition, Riviera), German star, Wotan Wilke Möhring (The Island, West of Liberty), Vivian Didriksen Ólafsdóttir (Cop Secret), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (Severance, The Minister). The film was directed by Icelandic director, Óskar Thór Axelsson who was such a pleasure to work with.
The film was adapted from the novel "napleonsskjolin", by Arnaldur Indriðason, and translated into 40 languages. Arnaldur Indriðason has the rare distinction of having won the Nordic Crime Novel Prize two years in a row and is also the winner of the highly respected and world famous CWA Gold Dagger Award for the top crime novel of the year in the English language, "Silence of the Grave".
Story: A lawyer sucked into an international conspiracy after being accused of a murder she didn't commit. Only chance of survival lies in uncovering the secret of an old German World War II airplane, discovered on Iceland's largest glacier.
I think Cineplex / Filmpalast Cologne will be hopping tonight!
