The ‘Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas’ has been unleashed in the film’s official trailer and photos. The historical drama, which was written and directed by Arnaud des Pallières, is set to be released on May 30 in theaters and On Demand.

The following synopsis for ‘Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas,’ which was nominated for six César Awards, including Best Actor for Mads Mikkelsen in the title role, has been released:

An arresting medieval epic starring Mads Mikkelsen (‘A Royal Affair,’ ‘Valhalla Rising,’ ‘Hannibal’), ‘Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas explores the high cost of vengeance. With the age of feudalism in decline, Europe rests at a tense crossroads between the old world and the new. Respected, well-to-do horse merchant Michael Kohlhaas is a loving husband and family man leading a peaceful existence, until a ruthless nobleman steals his horses, setting off a chain of irreversible events. Kohlhaas resorts to extremes after these crimes destroy his livelihood and trust in the law, igniting a rampage through the countryside in his quest for justice.

Adapted from Heinrich von Kleist’s 16th century novella, the story of Michael Kohlhaas is considered one of the first examples of modern literature. Filled with gorgeous widescreen cinematography, Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and stands tall as a powerful cinematic adaptation of a classic of German romanticism.
