6th century France: Michael Kohlhaas, a horse dealer and loving father, lives a happy and prosperous life in the peaceful countryside.
But when a cruel, rapacious baron seizes his livelihood and defiles his family’s honour he will take up arms and set out on a mission for vengeance that will send the kingdom up in flames...
A cold, steely, blood-soaked medieval epic featuring a commanding central performance from Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Clash of the Titans, Valhalla Rising), Age of Uprising is a gripping tale of revenge, righteousness and rebellion.
