The Hunt (Jagten)
  • Has anyone seen this film? Danish film (subtitled) starring Mads Mikkelsen about a playgroup teacher who gets accused of noncing his best friends kid.

    Genuinely harrowing and affecting film to the point I had dreams that family members and friends were getting accused of being paedos for weeks after!

    Mads Mikkelsen is as always brilliant!

  • Will watch, thanks for the tip x
     
  • Just make sure you're not hungover/emotionally unstable at the time!

  • I'm fucked then.

    Q: Is it violent/brutal, or just a harsh story?
     
  • Just a really dark storyline to the point where I was nearly in tears at the central characters plight and suffering.

    However Mads does stick the head on some cunt twice his size :thumbup:

    Fucking double posts!
     
  • Are the subtitles in English? I once saw a film with French subtitles and I couldn't really follow what was going on.
     
  • Yes Alf, they are!
     
  • Sounds right up my street. Will watch

    PS. I recently observed MUD (whilst I was in NY), don't be put of by Matthew McConaughey's inclusion in it, he and the film are ace. It was smooth, finely acted, etc. 9/10
     
  • He's got his career out of the mess it was in over the last few years. Killer Joe and The Lincoln Lawyer were fine turns by him. Mud looks excellent!
     
  • Mikkel Madsen you say?

    The subtitle file is always labelled in the language it is translated into, not translated from, so if this happens again just reselect English.
     
  • Wankmarked etc

    No I shall watch this at the weekend I have found an excellent stream of it :toppa:

    Mud is pretty average.

    It's half an hour too long, and in that half an hour nothing happens to drive the story.

    It doesn't help that I watched it in a trendy arthouse cinema (i'm a member btw for all you cinema noobs) which doesn't sell popcorn and has seats the size of cereal bowls :spaz:
     
  • The Lighthouse?
     
  • No the smelly fucking IFI x(

    The Lighthouse is amazing. Popcorn for €3, bottles of O'Haras, fucking LEGROOM LEGROOM LEGROOM and a nice mix of indie / 3D SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERZ :mashed:

    It's literally the best thing about Dublin.
     
  • I've never actually been in the IFI. It seems a dump of a place.

    The Lighthouse is awesome. Went with a mate to see the Snoop Lion documentary a few weeks back and we were the only 2 people in the cinema. We proceeded to get wankered on staropramen.
     

Howdy, Stranger!
