This is a Danish language drama with English subtitles. In Denmark this film is called Jagten. The director was very brave to do this film. Mads Mikkelsen is fantastic. At the Cannes film festival in 2012 it won Best Actor (Mads Mikkelsen), Prize for the Ecumenical Jury and Vulcain Prize for the Technical Artist award. One film critic wrote about this film “It’s extremely powerful stuff – tense, gripping and disturbing – with plaudits too, to young newcomer Annika Wedderkopp”.
