A movie that teaches us how to fight a bully, and then they see Christian's dad being bullied. Both of the boys were great in this film; however, I have a preference toward Elias played by Markus Rygaard. Elias appeared as an easy-going type, cool and all that.

I was worried this was veering into cliche "psycho kid" film territory toward the middle, but it redeems itself by the end.

Very well done but quite...slick. Everything falls pat. Susanne Bier's films have been very successful but in my view there are other recent Danish films that are better: the Dogme-style A Soap, for instance.

A disturbing movie showing the heartless brutality teens can engage in.
