The Hunt was a really moving treatment of child sex abuse and the mass hysteria it can cause. The heavy subject matter was handled really well and Mads Mikkelsen was incredible with superb acting by everybody involved, even the children. Klara ;_; The terrible thing is, it wasn't really anybody's fault. The counselor who came in should have known better than to ask leading questions as children are highly suggestible, but other than that, nobody was really to blame for the events of the first half, everybody just wanted what was best for their children and rightly so. The way the townspeople reacted was frighteningly plausible and it's so tragic that this sort of thing can and does actually happen. Fantastic ending.

The severity of this film smashes on the shoulder. Emotionally strong impact on the viewer. Great climate, the role of the main and ending. Strong study of social ostracism.

The Hunt by Thomas Vinterberg, and if you haven't already seen his film The Celebration, I'd highly recommend you check it out. When it premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Mads Mikkelsen took on the Best Actor award, and I can't really argue with that, because the level of suffer More

Viewers beware: this is not an easy or light watch.

Mads Mikkelsen absolutely kills it as a somewhat lonely single man, who suddenly finds love and welcomes his son to live with him.

That's all I'll reveal in the review, no spoilers here.

But again, this isn't a light film, nor should it be More

Well scripted, well performed, well staged.

A round movie with a fantastic Mads Mikkelsen. Honestly, I think this movie would have been even better with some more minutes on it to develop the plot even further.

Fantastic directing.
