Moral dilemmas, even age-old ones, won't ever get old in cinema, because they easily provide one of the central elements that all films must have: conflict. If you've got a moral quandary, and you've got one character who leans in one direction, and another character who leans in the opposite direction, you've at least got the potential for a solid plot. The issue in controversy in IN A BETTER WOR... read more

I always had a weak spot for Scandinave movies and Susanne Bier must be one of the best Danish directors at work nowadays so I was definitely eager to check this movie, especially since it won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year. Eventually, Bier delivered once again a very strong drama and probaby one of her best movies so far. Once again, her directing was quite beautifu... read more

A very good movie

“I always had a weak spot for Scandinave movies and Susanne Bier must be one of the best Danish directors at work nowadays so I was definitely eager to check this movie, especially since it won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year. Eventually, Bier delivered once again a very strong drama and probaby one of her best movies so far. Once again, her directing was quite beautiful and she managed to get some very good performances from her cast, especially from those two boys who were both quite impressive. Indeed, the relationship between those teenagers was the best thing in this flick, how they were both messed up for some reasons, how they bond with each other and how they got into same massive trouble together.
