Story


"The Hunt" is a disturbing depiction of how a lie becomes the truth when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish and ignite a witch-hunt that soon threatens to destroy an innocent man's life.

Mads Mikkelsen plays Lucas, a highly-regarded school teacher who has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered. An untruthful remark throws the small community into a collective state of hysteria. The lie is spreading and Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie works beautifully by bringing forward the delicate subject of guilt via passivity..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..the film is visually polished (bordering on bland) and numbingly routine..”
by Jon Frosch [Village Voice]
“.."The Hunt" looks and sounds like a comfortably budgeted Danish drama, with the requisite crisp, occasionally twitchy widescreen lensing..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Variety]
