Directed by Susanne Bier, Denmark 2010
118 mins. Danish dialogue with English sub-titles

WINNER : BEST FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM AT 2011 OSCARS & GOLDEN GLOBES

 
Summary:
 
A gripping, heart-rending drama about revenge and the power of forgiveness from internationally-acclaimed director Susanne Bier (The Night Manager). From the confines of a refugee camp in Africa, to the deceptively idyllic suburban life of two families in Denmark, two fragile worlds are inextricably linked by conflict, violence and the hard choices struggling to be made for life in a better world.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"Bier has a potent gift for turning abstract, moral questions like these into edge-of-your-seat compelling dramas that examine, with devastating effect, the complex web of feelings that make us who we are."  (Kenneth Turan - Los Angeles Times)
