IN A BETTER WORLD / Hævnen (2010) Movie Trailer: Susanne Bier

Mikael Persbrandt, Wil Johnson, In a Better World

The In a Better World Movie Trailer has premiered. Susanne Bier‘s In a Better World (2010) aka Hævnen stars Mikael Persbrandt, Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, and William Jøhnk Nielsen. In a Better World (2010)’s plot synopsis: “Anton is a doctor who commutes between his home in an idyllic town in Denmark, and his work at an African refugee camp. In these two very different worlds, he and his family are faced with conflicts that lead them to difficult choices between revenge and forgiveness. Anton and his wife Marianne, who have two young sons, are separated and struggling with the possibility of divorce. Their older, ten-year-old son Elias is being bullied at school, until he is defended by Christian, a new boy who has just moved from London with his father, Claus. Christian’s mother recently lost her battle with cancer, and Christian is greatly troubled by her death. Elias and Christian quickly form a strong bond, but when Christian involves Elias in a dangerous act of revenge with potentially tragic consequences, their friendship is tested and lives are put in danger. Ultimately, it is their parents who are left to help them come to terms with the complexity of human emotions, pain and empathy.” Many of the top foreign film of 2010 had war time or war zone themes and In a Better World is no different. Incendies was one of the others. I am looking forward to seeing what Anton does when confronted with the warlord or lord of war that has committed so many atrocities in the area where he volunteers. Check out the In a Better World / Hævnen movie trailer below and leave your thoughts on it. No US theatrical release date announced yet.
