Detective Andreas' (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) perfect life is thrown into chaos when he is called out to a domestic dispute between a junkie couple only to find their infant son neglected and crying in a closet. With red tape stopping him from intervening, Andreas is shaken to the core and finds himself powerless in protecting the child from his violent father. Slowly losing his grip on right and wrong he decides to take justice into his own hands with devastating consequences.
Another unusual storyline directed by the magnificent Susanna Bier. A traumatic scenario around the repercussions of infant death, thoughtfully acted out by an excellent cast. Camera work is excellent too. Not an uplifting movie but thoroughly recommended.
