Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kristian Levring (THE KING IS ALIVE, 2000), written by Academy Award-winner Anders Thomas Jensen (IN A BETTER WORLD, 2010 and LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED, 2012) together with Kristian Levring, THE SALVATION is a large scale western drama rooted in Scandinavia – a tale of revenge, blood feud, lost love and greed.

Featuring an all-star cast consisting of Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mikael Persbrandt, Eric Cantona and Jonathan Pryce among others and lead by Mads Mikkelsen as a Danish settler in 19th century North America, who sets out to avenge his family, THE SALVATION marks director Kristian Levring's return to Cannes.
In 2000, his film THE KING IS ALIVE screened in Un Certain Regard.

1870s America. When settler John kills his family's murderer, he unleashes the fury of notorious gang leader Delarue. Betrayed by his corrupt and cowardly community, the peaceful pioneer must turn vengeful hunter, slay the outlaws, and cleanse the town's black heart.
