    Nokas is a riveting heist movie, based around Norway’s most spectacular bank robbery in the coastal town of Stavanger in 2004. Played with such naturalistic precision by the actors, the picture captures the audience almost like a documentary. Part of this is down to the script, which avoids ‘interpretation’ and sticks with the facts as thrown up by a huge national investigation; it also benefits from the approach of director Erik Skjoldbjærg (who wrote and directed the original Insomnia with Stellan Skarsgaard) as he knits together the four key perspectives: robbers, police, bank employees and the public. This is unlike the Hollywood flashy heist movies, and all the better for it.
