Mads Mikkelsen plays a kindergarten teacher who’s wrongfully accused of inappropriate action with one of the children. This causes the majority of the small Swedish village to turn viciously against him. This film is stark and bleak (it is, after all Sweden). There’s almost no music or manipulative filmmaking by director Thomas Vinterberg (“Celebration”). Still, it packs a powerful punch. Obviously, the subject matter adds to the gravity of the film, but Mikkelsen’s subtle, sensitive portrayal lends quiet depth and powerful emotion. (Criterion Cinema only, subtitles)
