  • An emotional powerhouse. show more

  • After a few queasy moments at its midpoint, the trajectory of In a Better World becomes so relentlessly platitudinous that an audience that ought to feel seriously rattled will be settling back, feeling comfortably reassured. show more

  • Bier appears to have a delicate touch with actors: In a Better World is loaded - perhaps overloaded - with nuance, and her performers never overdo a thing. show more

    One of the best films of the year. Everything is top notch: the acting, writing and directing. It\'s a film about revenge, and how far we should go when someone takes advantage of us. This film definitely deserved the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Highly recommended.
