The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist May 22, 2014 at 11:00AM

It's hard to think of any other 48-year-old actors having the kind of moment Mads Mikkelsen currently is. A Cannes winner for his turn in "The Hunt," an American network TV star thanks to his excellent work in "Hannibal," and currently turning heads on the Croisette thanks to the western "The Salvation," pretty much everything the actor touches is worth tuning in to see what he does. And so it goes with "Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas," and today, we have an exclusive clip from the film.

Mads Mikkelsen, MICHAEL KOHLHAAS BY ARNAUD DES PALLIÈRES

It's hard to think of any other 48-year-old actors having the kind of moment Mads Mikkelsen currently is. A Cannes winner for his turn in "The Hunt," an American network TV star thanks to his excellent work in "Hannibal," and currently turning heads on the Croisette thanks to the western "The Salvation," pretty much everything the actor touches is worth tuning in to see what he does. And so it goes with "Age Of Uprising: The Legend Of Michael Kohlhaas," and today, we have an exclusive clip from the film.

Based on Heinrich von Kleist's 16th century novella, and directed by Arnaud de Pallières, the story follows a horse dealer who rebels against the establishment when two of his animals are illegally confiscated. He soon finds people to back his cause as the situation escalates but not everyone agrees with his tactics. As you'll see in this scene, Michael Kohlhaas is accused of having a wicked heart as Mads Mikkelsen says much with his stoic face while barely uttering a word. 

Music Box Films will release film in theaters and on VOD on May 30th. Watch below.
