Cannes Movie Review: The Hunt

Sitting in the fourth row on the aisle at the Grand Lumiere Theatre roughly about a half an hour before midnight, as a rainstorm continues to rage outside in Southern France, I stand up to join 2,300 others to welcome Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Vinterberg, and other dignitaries from the Danish film, The Hunt.

In an event that can only be described as très cool, the world premiere of Vinterberg’s film on the 5th night of the 65th Cannes Film Festival was memorable, and that was just seeing the effusively charming Mikkelsen in person.The film, a dramatic, tension-wrought story of a sensible man caught in the centre of an egregious lie, kept the crowd rapt, as evidenced by several jumps, screams, and more than a few clever recurring jokes.

Please check out my entire review at Scene Creek.
