The plot: Primary school teacher Lucas is wrongly accused of inappropriate behaviour by a young charge, Klara, who just happens to be the angelic daughter of his best mate Theo. The girl later retracts her statement - "He didn't do anything. I said something foolish" - but the damage is done and close friends and colleagues turn on Lucas, meeting his pleas of innocence with shocking violence. "I believe the children - they don't lie," says headmistress Grethe coldly.

Time Out

"Vinterberg, his cast and cinematographer Charlotte Bruus Christensen manage to sustain a pleasingly edgy mood, making at least for intelligent, suspenseful entertainment."

Variety

"Known for his often icy and violent characters, Mikkelsen impresses here as a warm-hearted man who finds himself caught up in a situation way beyond his control."

Guardian

"Mikkelsen, an actor still perhaps best known as the Bond villain in Casino Royale, shows just how excellent a performer he is."
