The Hunt (Denmark: Jagten), 2012.
Directed by Thomas Vinterberg.
A teacher and father's quiet life implodes when a child accuses him of the worst kind of inappropriate behaviour...
Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt is about belief and doubt and how quickly those doubts can spiral out of control. In a similarly gruelling, uncomfortable way to Vinterberg's most celebrated film Festen, here interpretations of suspicion, memory and the fragile nature of human relationships are integral to the unnerving plot. A nervous, thought provoking and deeply sensitive work, The Hunt is fully deserving of all the accolades it has so far received.
