“This is cinema that sinks its claws into your back” The Telegraph
Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a highly-regarded school teacher, has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered. An untruthful remark throws the small community into a collective state of hysteria. The lie is spreading and Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
THE HUNT is a disturbing portrait of how a lie can quickly become truth and how fragile a community can become when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish. It is a stirring portrait of a man struggling to absolve himself, and a father and son reaching out to one another as their world crumbles.
