A man is seen fully naked in a non-sexual swimming scene. Very brief and played for comedic effect.

A teenager views hardcore pornography and shows it to a small child. Images of penises and women with open mouths are shown. The child then goes on to repeat what the teenager said about a penis to her teacher, which sparks an accusation of pedophilia.

A man engages in naked sexual thrusting with a woman.

A man investigates a pedophilia case by asking a small girl if "something white" came out of the wrongfully accused suspect's penis.

There are multiple references by various characters to male anatomy and sexual abuse.

The entire plot revolves around a man wrongfully accused of pedophilia. The film does not shy away from this dark subject matter, and it very bravely tackles it. However, it is not vulgar or crude in any way.


Including one scene in which a man is punched in the face after he slaps a big man.

In another scene a man is hit in the face multiple times and his something heavy thrown at his head, blood is seen in his hair and we see the bruises and cuts later.

A man who has been beaten headbutts his attacker, who falls to the ground and groans although no blood is seen.

A few uses of shit. 5 uses of fuck

NOTE: The swearing is all in Danish.


Characters are frequently shown drinking wine and beer.

In one scene two males are shown as severely intoxicated.


The story of the film involved an innocent man being accused of sexual abuse against a the daughter of his best friend. The whole story,acting and writing makes it seem very, very realistic and may distress some.

It's sad to see an innocent character go through what he goes through.

A dog is killed in a brutal way,however the killing of the dog is not shown just the body and signs of it being violent.

The scenes where deer are hunted and some are killed and may be upsetting.

[spoiler]A man and his son are talking in the kitchen and a rock is chucked through the window nearly hitting the man. This is a very jumpy moment and will likely catch you off guard.

At the end, the main character is hunting with his friends who have forgotten the incident and presumed he was not guilty has a shot fired at him but it misses. This is a jump moment which will try and catch you off guard. He looks at his shooter who is covered by sunlight and runs away.

Recommended for anyone who is mature.


Rated R for sexual content including a graphic image, violence and language
