The always-compelling Mads Mikkelsen joins other top-flight Danish actors in this seriously dark revenge comedy about a soldier who returns home when his wife and daughter are involved in a tragic train accident. Or was it an accident? Not according to a trio of angry misfits who show up to argue otherwise. This is a powerful, important film about parenthood, friendship, and forgiveness, but likely not for everyone: there is a considerable amount of violence, and one of the characters is given to outbursts of extremely foul language. Come prepared.
