Biography

Morten Tyldum est né à Bergen en Norvège. Il étudie à l'École d'arts visuels de New York.

Il réalise son premier long-métrage Buddy, en 2003, qui sera bien reçu par la critique et remportera notamment deux Prix Amanda.

En 2008, il tourne le film Fallen Angels (Varg Veum - Falne engler) et Headhunters en 2011, ce dernier étant tiré du roman du même nom, écrit par l'auteur Jo Nesbø. Headhunters est le film norvégien qui réalisera les plus grosses recettes cette année-là.

Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie), Norway's most successful headhunter, supports his lavish lifestyle by stealing paintings from his clients. His partner Ove (Eivind Sander) works at a surveillance company and deactivates security at the victims' homes. Roger's wife, Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund), an art gallery owner, introduces him to Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), an executive who wants to work for Pathfinder, a GPS technologies company, for which Roger is recruiting. Roger becomes jealous of Diana's attraction to Clas. Diana tells Roger that Clas owns a rare Rubens painting. Roger takes Clas to lunch to discuss the job at Pathfinder and after playing squash later, he notices scars on Clas's back. Clas mentions he received them during his [military] service, where he was a member of a special forces unit that specialized in tracking people, a fact which gives Roger pause for thought. Despite his misgivings, Roger meets with Ove to work out details on stealing the painting. Roger manages to steal it from Clas' home but he discovers Diana's cellphone beside Clas' bed. Later, after a seemingly successful meeting with Pathfinder, a still distraught Roger flippantly informs Clas that the company may be looking for someone else to fill the position.

The film is about 24-year-old Kristoffer (Nicolai Cleve Broch), who lives in Tøyen in Oslo with his friends Geir (Aksel Hennie) and Stig Inge (Anders Baasmo Christiansen). Geir likes to live dangerously, while Stig is a more cautious and uncertain type. Kristoffer and Geir work as billboard hangers, and in his spare time Kristoffer makes a video diary with Geir and Stig, containing stunts of a Jackass-nature. When Kristoffer's girlfriend, Elisabeth (Janne Formoe), leaves him, his life seems to fall to pieces. Then his videos are featured on Norway's most popular talk show, "God morgen Norge" on TV 2, and Kristoffer becomes famous.
