Back at the Toronto International Film Festival, we had the immense pleasure of taking part in a junket that brought together three huge forces in European cinema: Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts, and French superstar Lea Seydoux – and we weren’t disappointed.

Also starring Colin Firth and Max Von Sydow, Kursk: The Last Mission is a moving and gripping exploration beneath the sea, telling a brutal true story. We discussed the project in great length with those who brought it to our very screens – and you can watch the full video of our chats right below:


An explosion on a nuclear-powered Russian submarine kills most of the men aboard and causes the few survivors to huddle in waterlogged and oxygen deficient rear compartments, where they anxiously await rescue. It is a race against time with oxygen levels running low as the Russian government plans the best course of action, before finally accepting help from the British and Norwegian governments.
Kursk: The Last Mission is out in cinemas across the UK on July 12th
