Ok, who saw this great film? I loved just about every aspect of it.

Different country, language, and culture (I'm assuming the majority of people on here are not from Denmark), but very familiar subject matter. Great to see the interrogation of a child, and how the questions were inherently loaded to help support her side of the story, yet the characters were oblivious to this.

The psychology of the different age groups was great too. The maturity of the main character to not load his own questions, but stand his own ground, to the rebellious teen rambunctiously eager to start fights/arguments, and even to the little kids lying and "following the leader."

I can easily see why this film is rated so highly on IMDB and Metacritic (not that I think people around here actually care for those that much).

saw it at my local one screen cinema last year on a whim because I'd heard great things... I knew Mads was a beast but.... holy ish Laughing that guy snapped.

Also made me pretty angry too. We know Mads is a great guy, but the things he has to go through.. what a freaking intense movie. Easily earned a spot in my top 10 last year.

Dude, IKR! I was literally pounding my fists on the table during the interrogation scene. Just so many flaws that it was infuriating.

But that's what makes the movie so great. Definitely got me emotionally attached.

Two thumbs up for sure

Phenomenal movie. I'm amazed Mads isn't a bigger star than he is now.

He absolutely killed it in this movie

Lol I actually thought for a second that he was experiencing a heart attack or something when he was playing with the kids inside the building

I think he was like 45-46 when it was shot and he could have passed for 35

I guess that happens when you're a foreign star. Your performances go unnoticed.

He'll be in Kung Fu Panda 3 tho...
