In a Better World

The lives of two Danish families cross each other, and an extraordinary but risky friendship comes into bud. But loneliness, frailty and sorrow lie in wait.

Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: Good script, good direction, good photography and good performances, specially from the children.

    This story about bullying and problematic families would have everythiing if it wouldn’t be because it is too obvious and predictable. Almost, manipulative.

    I think I even liked it more because I’m starting to “understand” more and more the Scandinavian culture and its problems.
