The Film: In A Better World

In A Better World

Anyone who likes the work of German cineaste Michael Haneke of The White Ribbon and Hidden fame (have you ever heard a more erudite opening remark on the Jake Briefing? We’ve impressed ourselves!), will be very interested in the Best Film Not in the Queen’s English Oscar winner, In A Better World. No it’s not by Haneke but by one Susanne Bier, but there is a definite Haneke strain with children getting out of control, deep themes of what sort of stand you make against bullies and how far violence is justified – and great performances even from pint-size actors. It’s in Danish, it’s one you have to think about and it has got four- and five-star reviews pretty much across the board. And we loved it. What higher recommendation could you ask for?
