IN A BETTER WORLD

DIRECTOR: Susanne Bier - DENMARK

Anton commutes between his home in an idyllic Danish town and his work at a Kenyan refugee camp tending to the victims of tribal war. Anton and his wife Marianne, who lives in Denmark, are separated. Their eldest son, ten-year-old Elias, is being bullied at school, until Christian, newly arrived from London and troubled by the recent death of his mother, defends him. The boys quickly form a strong bond, but when Christian involves Elias in a dangerous act of revenge with potentially tragic consequences, lives are put in danger. Anton, seeing life from the perspective of living with violence in two very different worlds, is faced with difficult moral choices between revenge and forgiveness. (119 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Once in a Lifetime (00), Brothers (04), After the Wedding (06).

This year’s Danish submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
