The Hunt

The Hunt ★★★★★

Without a doubt, the best Scandinavian film ever made.

The movie is about a teacher, Lucas, who lives a entirely normal life, until one little lie ruins it all.

The story and the characters is what really drives this movie. I can honestly say that I never cared so much about a character in a movie like I cared about Lucas. Mads Mikkelsen, who plays Lucas, does an absoulutely tremendous job! From the moment the movie kicks off, you realle start to care and feel for this man. Having lost his son to custody, and now also being accused for the rape of a child, he experiences nothing but trouble, as his whole home town turns against him.

So, the story is excellent, the acting is superb, and the tone in the movie as fantastic. You should definitely watch this movie if you like a good and sad story, with some superb acting!
