Described as a “disturbing existential wake-up call”, Suicide Tourist follows Max Isaksen (Coster-Waldau), an insurance claims adjuster who is investigating the disappearance of a married man named Arthur. The trail will lead him to the Aurora Hotel, a remote, secretive luxury resort that has a particular speciality: assisting its guests to fulfil their fantasy suicides. Going through his own existential crisis, Max proceeds to question his own life, death and his perception of reality, as he comes to understand that suicide might be his only way to escape from the hotel. Novotny plays Max’s wife, Lærke, while the rest of the cast includes Sobjørg Højfeldt (Ride Upon the Storm), Robert Aramayo (Game of Thrones), Kaya Wilkins (Thelma [+lire aussi :
