A misunderstood artist, Michael Peterson preferred to use the name Charles Bronson on his way to fame. In his childhood he already showed an innate talent for violence, but it was after holding up a post office that he found his true home. 34 years in prison made him the most famous criminal in the UK. Backed by the epic of Verdi, Wagner and other great classics, Nicolas Winding Refn rests the weight of Bronson on the presence of actor Tom Hardy, who strips his body and soul (literally) to step into the skin of the beast. A tour de force that turns him into the undisputed showman of this daring opera of violence.
Nicolas Winding Refn
Copenhagen, 1970. His taste for combining beauty and violence has made him one of the most relevant contemporary filmmakers, thanks to movies like Pusher (96), Valhalla Rising (09), Drive (11) or Only God Forgives (13). Last year he was awarded the Sitges Time Machine.
