A former history teacher and his wife Claire meet at a fancy restaurant with his elder brother, a prominent politician and his wife Babette. The plan is to discuss over dinner how to handle a crime committed by their teenage sons. The violent act of the two boys had been filmed by a security camera and shown on TV, but, so far, they have not been identified. The parents have to decide on what to do.Written by
This is actually the third film version to be made from Herman Koch's best selling novel. A Dutch film came out in 2013, and an Italian one in 2014. Both were well received and nominated for numerous awards. See more »
This might have been one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not only does the plot jump around trying to tie in dramatic twists, but the ending leaves you wonder what the hell just happened. The whole movie is boring and lacks actual depth. Whoever wrote this tried way too hard to write an award winning movie by being unique that they actually forgot to relate the 237930850 story lines. One person has a mental illness, there's a solid 5 minutes regarding the Civil War that ties into literally nothing, and in the end you have no idea what they actually decided to do with their kids, which is what the whole movie is suppose to be about. Just terrible. I've heard my 2 year old tell better stories.
