VOTD: Mads Mikkelsen Is An Assassin In Ford Short

If BMW can do it with their “The Hire” series, why not Ford?

The car making giant is behind “Le Fantome” (aka. “The Ghost”), a new eight-minute short film directed by Jake Scott (“Plunkett & Macleane,” “Welcome to the Rileys”) and starring “Hannibal” actor Mads Mikkelsen as an enigmatic stranger and lethal assassin.

Part thriller, a whole bunch of satire and a bit of a romance story all set in luscious locales and boasting an impressive score and shot compositions – it’s a fun, very handsomely produced piece that works (mostly) on its own and playfully twists Mikkelsen’s image.
