Hævnen (In a Better World).

just watched Danish director Susanne Bier‘s 2010 film Hævnen, known in English as In a Better World.

Susanne Bier on the premise of the film:

“It’s about the distance between being savable and not savable. At what point does redemption become impossible? Is there such a point? This is what we wanted to explore in the subtext of the story. I also think it’s very interesting to trace the route of an innocent who actually behaves like a terrorist but is really just an angry little boy – an angry little boy who can also be dangerous.”

slower-paced with wonderful prolonged, pensive shots – definitely recommended.
