I just watched The Hunt a Danish film about a guy who was accused somehow by a young girl who accused him (wrongly) of exposing himself + (after her father’s drunken friends had exposed her to ‘adult pics’). It’s not a spoiler to say that the film includes a misguided witch-hunt.

As with many Scandinavian films it’s interesting but thoughtful & slow burning.

Don’t forget to mention Mads Mikkelsen’s excellent performance!

Yes, no disagreement there!
Well, one of the reasons I veered towards the film was actually the Carlsberg Ad wondering who the very enigmatic guy was!
I understand now that he’s ‘Hannibal’ (as in Lecter)  - I’m intending to try that first series but I think I’ve got to pay!  Cry

I’d recommend tracking down more of his films (like A Royal Affair, After the Wedding, the Pusher films, heck, even his turn as Bond-villain in Casino Royale). He’s one of the very best actors around.

I can follow the “enigmatic” description. Fits him, imo.

Thanks for the recommendations!  Thumbs Up
Unfortunately none of those titles are included at the moment on Amazon Prime but A Royal Affair is available to rent quite cheaply as is Pusher.  Smile

The Hunt sounds like my kind of movie. I will go look for it.

I am watching “Kill the Irishman.” So far, it is an amazing movie.

Nice to know, but using your phone/computer in the cinema can disturb others. Next time maybe wait until it’s over. Besides, maybe the second half was awful?

I watched it on DVD. Second half was still very good. Learned a few things because it is a biopic.
