In a better world (Hævnen) (2010)

Some films resemble a beautiful architecture. This is the case when many ideas are put seamlessly together to make a construct that points to specific direction. “In a better world” is one of these films. It explains how kids interpret the grown up’s world, where the pain from the loss of someone beloved turns into wrath for the injustice of the surrounding world and the people who love them. The way natural disagreements in the family make things worse. How this in turn may lead them to extreme actions that themselves may regret. Most of all however, the film makes the most multi-aspect comment on the issue of violence I have ever seen, elucidated in a brilliant manner.

A film you should not miss.

My rating: 09/10
