Worthwhile Danish drama exploring the witch hunt mentality around paedophilia
"Ultimately The Hunt demonstrates how quickly the veneer of ‘civilization’ can be stripped away, and equally how swiftly ‘normality’ can be restored, although to the film’s credit, the coda adds a layer of ambiguity to proceedings."
Film Review: 'The Hunt'
"The fragile foundation this aggressive inquest is built around is the tentative belief that "children always tell the truth" - something anyone who's ever had the privilege of spending time with a precocious six-year-old will endlessly dispute. It's a curious idea to build such a grandiose accusation around, when the inherent fear all parents have that their children could be hurt would have easily been enough of a catalyst for this glorified witch hunt."
