Thomas Vinterbergs drama om den 40-årige fraskilte familiefar, Lucas, der bliver udsat for en heksejagt i en mindre dansk provinsby, havde verdenspremiere på Cannes festivalen, hvor den vandt tre priser. "Jagten" er desuden på programmet på Toronto International Film Festival, som er i gang netop nu, ligesom filmen blev vist på den netop overståede Telluride Filmfestival i Colorado, USA.

"Jagten" får dansk biografpremiere den 10. januar 2013 som en del af Biografklub Danmarks program.

Kapringen

Tobias Lindholms drama om skibet MV Rozen og dets besætning, som bliver kapret af somaliske pirater, er netop nu på programmet på to internationale festivaler.

LFF 2012: The Hunt

Posted 14th October 2012, 12:11pm in Film, by Christa Ktorides

If there is any justice come Oscar time, the sublime Mads Mikkelsen would see his name amongst the nominees.

Released in cinemas 30th November 2013.

At the very heart of Thomas Vinterberg's upsetting drama, lies a powerful and truthful central performance from Danish superstar Mads Mikkelsen. While American and British audiences are used to seeing Mikkelsen in villainous and action man roles, those in his native land have long been wise to his dramatic and subtle side, most notably his work with director Susanne Bier in After The Wedding and Open Hearts.

Here Mikkelsen plays Lucas, a recently divorced kindergarten teacher with a delightful dog named Fanny who barks at the mention of his ex-wife's name. Lucas is hugely popular with the children he teaches, including Klara (Kirsten Dunst look-a-like Annika Wedderkopp) the young daughter of his best friend. Just when Lucas' life seems to be on track - a new relationship with his forward colleague and custody of his son - his world is rocked by a false accusation of molestation by Klara after her misplaced crush on him is gently rebuffed.

The Hunt examines the hysteria and paranoia involved when a small, closeknit community is drawn into the unimaginable horror of child abuse but keeps things acutely personal by focusing on the accused and his slow descent from incredulity to utter despair. Where Vinterberg excels is in the portrayal of the accusation itself and how Klara becomes confused about the truth and what the adults around her seem all too ready to take as gospel, twisting her words and planting ideas in her mind. Soon enough others are accusing Lucas thanks to parents spotting "tell tale signs" of abuse in their children.

As Lucas' situation becomes more desperate we see tiny moments of humour diffuse the tension, making it a more bearable watch than the subject matter would have you believe possible. Make no mistake though, this is a harrowing watch as a confident, bright man has his world ripped apart.

There is a lull around two thirds in where Mikkelsen disappears and the focus of the tale turns to his son Marcus (Lasse Fogelstrøm) as he sets out to prove his father's innocence. While these scenes are compelling enough the audience is left to wonder how Lucas, so much the focus of the film, is faring.

The Hunt's release, coming right in the middle of the Jimmy Saville scandal, is timely indeed, making the already unappetising subject matter hugely unpalatable but do not let this deter you from seeing this beautifully shot and sensitive film. If there is any justice come Oscar time, the sublime Mikkelsen would see his name amongst the nominees.

The release date is in November 2013? In one year??? Hopefully that is a mistake.

LFF 2012: The Hunt

by Emma SimmondsTuesday, 16 October 2012

In Thomas Vinterberg’s blistering drama a fog of doubt sweeps through a small town

Featuring a towering, Cannes-award-winning performance from Mads Mikkelsen, The Hunt (Jagten) is a humane and horrifying story of the power of accusation from Danish director Thomas Vinterberg (Festen).

Mikkelsen plays Lucas, a kindergarten teacher in a Danish village. Though he’s a natural with the kids and is popular and connected locally, he’s a taciturn, somewhat enigmatic figure whose recent divorce has left him alone and missing his son. When his best friend’s tiny daughter Klara (Annika Wedderkopp) develops a crush on him, his rejection of her causes her to blurt out the most damaging of lies - that he has abused her. To add catastrophic insult, the school’s principal Grethe (Susse Wold) mishandles the matter spectacularly, resulting in a presumption of guilt and even the suggestion that other children have been targeted.

The Hunt highlights the vulnerability of those in the teaching profession to such accusations. It’s a prosaic horror story which puts a small community under a sharp, scathing microscope. This is a modern day witch-hunt, presented as if it could happen anywhere. Vinterberg's film gets plenty of mileage out of the guilelessness of the catalyst Klara – making a focus of her uncomprehending face, and out of Lucas’ dignity in the face of extreme provocation. There’s never any doubt that he is an innocent man; in fact we are shown quite clearly how the idea formed in Klara’s mind. The Hunt’s strength lies in the potency of the injustice, and the raw cinematic force of Mikkelsen.

Yeah, you're right. He really deserves an Oscar, but I can't imagine, that he'd get a nomination. Joanna said, that they wouldn't show this movie at cinemas - how could he get an Oscar for a movie nobody could see in the USA. And it's very hard for a man from a small country in Europe to be known in Hollywood. They only know Casino Royale - or maybe Hannibal, but that isn't on TV yet.

But I wrote on Facebook, that he's got a lot of European and other awards, which are more worth than the Oscar. I mean they don't realize good foreign movies, except for ONE Award. There are a lot better movies outside the English area (Sprachraum), so the Oscar doesn't mean so much to me anymore.
