I was raging while watching this movie, it was very emotional and I was in the verge of tears.

It was so good that I don't want to ever see it again
It was exceptional

A welcome, and very belated, return to form from Thomas Vinterberg - it's been nearly 15 years since he directed the classic "Festen" - but this film is even better. Mads Mikkelsen is phenomenal as Lucas, a nursery teacher wrongly accused of abusing his best friend's five year old daughter while she was in his care. The girl attempts to take back her lie but the community, set on a course of mistrust and disgust as more children speak up, turn on Lucas. It's scarily plausible how it runs out of control and absolutely gripping cinema. Vinterberg is in complete control of the film, and it looks stunning as well. One of my favourite films of a very strong year for foreign and independent film.

Provocative, powerful, pantastic. Especially as I am a teacher, this was a thrilling film. A must-see.

This movie shows us how stupid this witch hunt that is taking place truly is, yes pedo bear is somewhere in the wild. Yes, he needs to be hunted down, but he's not hiding behind every bush or hiding under every car in suburbia. It reminds me of another witch hunt that took place 23/25 years ago. The repressed memory hunt that destroyed countless people lives and 80% of the time it was a lie spoiler. Moral of the movie: ffuk society and when you see a child alone in the supermarket parking lot, turn around and go the other way.
1/10 one of the worst notes I've given to a movie, and the one 1 goes for the good acting of Mikk.

Am I the only one that thought EVERY person in the movie aside from Mikkelson and his son were complete retards?! spoilerOver the top and poorly written characters. Sorry, but this movie is laughably bad.

You've both blatantly ignored the film's message. Not liking it because the characters are idiots? That's just ridiculous. They're supposed to be like that. Whenever a witch hunt like this occurs, people act over the top and ignore the facts. There are always two sides of the story and everything isn't necessarily what it seems. So yeah, Dawizz, witch hunts are always stupid. The point of your 1/10 rating?

As claustrophobic as a Kafka novel. Worth watching.

What can you say about this masterful film?

It's both captivating viewing and enraging. It's a shocking look into how one line can destroy the World's perception of you and turn all that is good, upside down.

Mikkelson plays a composed and intense role, he is an amazing on screen presence and don't think anyone would fail to be impressed by his performance.

I wanted to turn this off half way through due to what direction it was headed, but I was dying to see it through to the end. Stunning scenes included the Supermarket and the Church. Look out for them.

The finale had me shivering with anticipation and it didn't disappoint. Horrible, gutwrenching, incredible and very important Cinema.

Good movie with great performances but also with some rather ridiculous moments/flaws. E.g. the lines "Children don't lie!" and "We asked our childrens and all of them had nightmares" had the whole cinema laughing.

The people were probably laughing, because everyone knows children DO lie, especially if they are asked leading questions. Obviously, those moments aren't flaws of the movie, but they show the idiocy of human beings.

A very important film. It asks questions that are often avoided. It is important to put yourself in the shoes of both parties.

Watched half, but my heart beat is going up. Acting is so real and d move is made so well that am not able to watch the 2nd half. Amazingly made movie, and the idea gets on your nerves, so provocative. ANGER FRUSTRATION and HELPLESSNESS is what i am feeling right now..
will finish the movie and comment again.

The best movie experiences are when you go in blank and come out amazed. That's what happened when I saw "Jagten". I didn't know what to expect, but it was such a good film, it really blew me away. It haunted me for days. And Mads Mikkelsen is fantastic, what an actor!

Astonishingly gripping and moving film. Mikkelsen is often singled out for justly-deserved praise over his performance, but in fact every aspect of this film is exceptional. My stomach felt like it was tied in a knot the whole way through.

Worth seeing for Mads Mikkelsen's tour de force performance alone. Loved the low-key ending as well.
As Bob Dylan once wrote: "We're living in the shadows of a fading past, trapped in the fires of time". I suppose that applies nicely to the film and especially its conclusion.
