Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


A chilling movie. In the lukewarm narration and calm and rational lens, depression, mania and cold almost desperate are brewing. This Danish film is as cold as the winter in northern Europe. In the trembling, it mercilessly cuts deep into the bones of human nature and social morality.

The viewing process of this film is definitely not a pleasant process. The cold and almost desperate atmosphere brewing in the film makes the whole film full of tension, and the resentment that is almost violent fills the chest, making people’s reason and emotion in disorder. The explosive tension of the plot makes the atmosphere of the whole film in an extremely delicate and explosive precise position, This subtle tension comes from the struggle between people’s hearts. The so-called three people become tigers, but this film is not just a story of three people become tigers. The setting of children wandering between angels and demons in the film makes the story of three people become more profound and chilling. The protection and attention of western countries to children can also be seen in this film. Children’s words are often innocent but unintentional, However, if such unintentional “children’s words” are stained with the social moral forbidden zone and misunderstood, innocence can become a highly toxic poison. Unfortunately, the protagonist in the film is an unlucky poisoned bastard. Naturally, children can not be responsible for their words. Their short personal experience makes them have nothing in the social status, but for an adult, A place in society can be almost all of them. When these are destroyed, it means that individual sociality is erased. For a rational adult, it is a disguised murder. The reaction of the hero in the film seems to be a little slow, and the self-protection only burst out at the end. However, it can be found carefully that in the preparatory paragraph, in the interaction between the hero and his children and in the communication with his girlfriend, I saw the faint passive character of the hero. Such people are often dull and kind-hearted.

Children are a special vulnerable group in society. They are not mature physically and psychologically and have weak ability to protect themselves. Therefore, in case of suspected violations against children, social groups will always stand on the side of children and attack them. However, when this social reservation is misinterpreted and misused, children will turn from angels into demons, Children’s unsound personality and identification make social conventions and reasonable solutions impossible here, so their words often bring great destruction. In the film, Lucas’s life is destroyed by one or two children’s nonsense, but the greatest destructive force in the destruction process is not directly brought by children, but by the exclusion and alienation of social groups, After all, people are still social animals. When a person is isolated and alienated, the harm brought by this estrangement to people is huge, not to mention that this exclusion and intentional alienation are unjust. The tension of the film is based on the opposition between exclusion and injustice, which perfectly shows this vicious interpersonal opposition and the collapse of the character’s heart. Rumors are fiercer than tigers, and when the rumors in the social ethics forbidden zone come from innocent children, this destructive force is even more fierce. In the film, in the face of scandals and subsequent rumors, the opposition between social groups gradually becomes three-dimensional and fierce, from the initial doubt to the exclusion of the whole social group, The film brews greater malice in the seemingly calm atmosphere. When the audience takes the hero as the first person into the story, this slowly brewing malice and hatred can almost evolve into anti social violent emotions. A gloomy anger can not explode for a long time, and finally it becomes a bone chilling chill.

In the first half hour of the film, I felt a little confused, and the cut was too slow. However, once this node passed, the film began to expand its explosive tension. The director’s handling of the lens was calm and rational, just as the protagonist began to restrain his reason in the film, but in the second half, when the protagonist’s reason began to shake, the lens of the film was still calm, The restlessness in the lens and the calm and rational outside the lens make the audience have a kind of anger from inside and outside, and even anti social violence. It is precisely because of the strong contrast between the cold inaction of the lens and the explosive tension in the story, which resonates with the strong viewing resonance of the protagonist’s grievance but helpless, It brings a great sense of introduction and accurate characterization. Thomas Winterberg, the director of the film, easily played the audience’s emotions with applause, which is the skill of the Danish director. This heavy social theme film can often bring people more thinking, whether it is love last year or more European social theme films in the past. What impresses me most is the scene in the church. The hero is very ironic. He comes to the church, a place begging for salvation, under the halo of God’s universal love. This may be the only place where he can peacefully share a room with the “sinner” and the “good man” of a community. When the children start singing Christmas carols in an angelic voice, This huge contrast between evil and innocence makes the hero’s reason on the verge of collapse, but after all, his reason still doesn’t collapse. This kind of person’s social attribute can never be erased. Otherwise, he will bypass Carla’s father and directly attack the child. Reason tells Lucas that the child is innocent and Lucas can only take it out on Carla’s father. I think this is a wrong judgment after all, Because the last scene clearly shows that the biggest culprit of the whole farce is not Carla, nor Carla’s father who made a wrong judgment, but the prejudice of the whole society in which Lucas lives. The adult ceremony at the end of the film is very worth pondering. The undertaking of the shotgun and the ambiguous smile around make people shiver. Adulthood means strength and responsibility, It also means the price. Social groups can accept you and give you a certain position, and can quickly and cruelly remove you like Lucas. In fact, it doesn’t matter who fired the meaningful shot at the end of the film. Its greatest value is to wake up those dreamers, and the shooter behind is just a vague outline. The director’s intention is very clear. This outline is designed for everyone.

The title of “hunting” has a certain meaning. Obviously, Lucas is the hunted elk in the social group forest. He is unprepared and even thankfully exposed in the dark forest. Countless hunters hiding in the dark can slander him, and the last amazing shot can be regarded as malicious slander or goodwill warning, But the hint is the same: let’s go. You’re no longer welcome in this forest. This unintentional exclusion of individuals by social groups makes people see part of the dark face of society and see the bottom. For the time being, let’s not mention the evil of child molestation, but talk about group exclusion. In the vast history, how little can this prejudice and persecution of the majority against the minority be? From pagans to homosexuals, from Bruno to Turing, this vicious ghost has been alive. Up to now, Iran still gives vicious stoning to homosexuals. Don’t think they are far away from us. Even today, it is still crawling around us. We can’t ignore the bad role of Kara as a fuse in the incident, but the most hateful thing is not children, But the arrogant adults who are hypocritical, biased, preconceived and self styled guardians. We should know that ignorance is not the biggest obstacle to civilization, and arrogance is. The so-called sedulousness of the film is not too much. This funny chain of events is always staged in our world, if you pay careful attention. Thank you for smashing all my fantasies and beautiful visions with the last shot. The anger that had been pent up in my heart for a long time was finally frightened and frozen into ice by the sudden gunshot, and a bone chilling chill filled my body.
