Hævnen Reviews:

Saw this in Toronto and it remained with me for days afterward. Shattering filmmaking! The size and elegance of a Hollywood large budget, with the honesty and challenge of an indy. The performances, especially those of the two boys, are riveting, but I was also impressed with the deep focus photography, the haunting score. Went to see this because I had so enjoyed After the Wedding - but feel this is even better. Only the ending conflict resolution is, perhaps, a tiny too easy-- but not unearned. And oh boy, was I grateful for it. I wish to see this with my son, because I wish him to experience the moral and emotional snake pit Bier and her screenwriter toss us into: each guy --no matter what age-- will receive it, and none of us will like it very much. To me, Bier speaks about what it SHOULD mean to be a man. Is vengeance built into our genes? I hope not. And I hope this wins the Academy Award this year, and everybody in America goes to see it.


I saw this on the plane the another day, and my only regret is that it was on a tiny screen.I've come to like Danish movies in general (and Ulrich Thomsen in particular) in newest years, although they are usually not very simple to watch. What they all seem to have in common is a certain melancholy, and they can therefore come across as rather depressing.The same here. Christian's mother's cancer death is quite obviously affecting both the man and his dad very, very deeply (though in very various ways), and the deep sorrow seem catchy for the viewer as well. It is probably also, however, a sign of the brilliant acting.The parallel story of Elias and his parents, who are in the process of a divorce, affects the viewer equally deeply.The stories are brilliantly interlinked, and the underlying theme of revenge is constantly there and makes us think. A lot! A deep-going, dramatic and extremely strong movie, which, I think, a wide audience could see. In my view, it would certainly deserve an Oscar!


Greetings again from the darkness. As is customary, the Oscar champion for Greatest Foreign Language movie finally makes it to Dallas in April AFTER the awards present is long forgotten (well, except for the half-assed hosting job by James Franco). Denmark's entry, directed by Susanne Bier (Things We Lost in the Fire), is overflowing with each human emotion one can imagine. However, the war between two emotions is most prevalent: misplaced revenge and forgiveness.At it's core, this is a storyline of two fathers and two sons. The presentation is quite odd in that it tries desperately to tie in all spectrum of human emotion and economic standing. Anton (Mikael Persbrandt from the perfect 2008 "Everlasting Moments") travels back and forth between an African refugee camp where he serves as a doctor, and his upscale Denmark home where he is separated from his wife and trying to set a nice example for his son Elias (Markus Rygaard).The another father is Claus (Ulrich Thomsen) whose relationship with his son Christian (William Johnk Nielsen) is flat out terrible. Christian's mother has recently lost her war with cancer and it has caused a rift between these two ... and lit a fire of anger in young Christian.Soon enough Christian stumbles upon Elias being bullied at school. His flaming temper sets the bully straight with a violent act, creating a bond between Elias and Christian. Sadly Christian continues to spin off axis and he drags Elias along.As a doctor in the camp, Anton constantly strives to repair the despicable acts of the local city bully. This is used to contrast with what's going on with his own son at home. There are many parts of the movie that are hard to watch, especially as Christian just loses his grip on reality.While I certainly see the excellence in the film, I trust the filmmakers tried too difficult to scene the contrast. The storyline of the men was plenty strong enough to carry a film. Also, the doctor in the camp should have made a chilling film on it's own. Instead we gets bits of every and that's fine ... just not what it might have been.
