Three and a half stars (R)
Mads Mikkelsen, Rolf Lassgard
Danish Best Foreign Language Oscar nominee about an outsider (Mikkelsen) who lands smack in the middle of a family crisis. The payoff of the film comes not from its melodramatic plot revelations, but from how the characters respond to them. The circumstances may be extreme, but the emotions are genuine. 115 minutes.
DVD INFO: Includes a 22-minute interview with director Susanne Bier, plus deleted scenes.
