    The only reason I don't give this movie a zero is Mads Mikkelsen's flawless performance.Story is laughable and totally unreal-5 year old girl falls in love with mature man??Then false accuse him for sexual abuse??How's that possible,she doesn't even know what penis is at that age.And whole town believes her-why?'Because little children don't lie!'-says director of kindergarten.REALLY??

And then for the rest of the movie we have basically a witch hunt like it's not 21st century Denmark but 15th century or something-system does not exist,no psychologist,no police,no law,no press,no anything except mad crowd thirsty for blood on one side and innocent victim on the other.Waste of time.

    If you want to see an actor doing his job as well as you've ever seen, you must see this movie.

For me, the worst film i have seen since i saw 'To the wonder'. 1h 40 minutes to tell you not to believe every word the children say. I think there's no need in seeing that film to acquire that knowledge. The plot is based in a lie said by a little girl that her parents hardly ever listen and everybody knew was special. My score for this film is ZERO, but, i must insist, my score for the main actor is 10, amazing, as usually. Expand

    Imbued as it is with a sense of discomforting truth, it is a worthwhile examination of human nature -- and one with a message well worth heeding.

    Vinterberg has created a modern horror story about a man’s descent into a Kafkaesque nightmare.

    Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen delivers an astonishingly restrained and expressive central performance in The Hunt, an engrossing psycho-social drama by Thomas Vinterberg.
