The Hunt 2013 / A complex drama fully carried by Mads Mikkelsen

Once again, Mads Mikkelsen gives us an unforgettable performance in this Danish thriller. Lucas is a new teacher in a small town. He is just starting a new life after a divorce and the loss of his last job. One day, a child from the class he is teaching accuses him of an unforgivable act. The lie will spread throughout the small community and will tear Lucas’ life apart. The Hunt, or “Jagten” in its original version, is one of those rare thrillers that will haunt you for days, and make you question everything in its aftermath. Extraordinary!

    A frustrating and disturbing film, but oh so good. It was more troubling to me than a horror/thriller. Not many actors can do what Mads Mikkelsen did here, going through different states of denial and defiance. Uneblievable film. 1 person liked this review.
