‘In a Better World’ takes place in a small-town Denmark and a refugee camp in Africa. Anton, a swedish doctor, lives between his home and a refugee camp in Sudan. He and his wife, Marianne, are close of getting separated. One of his sons, Elias, the older one, is being bullied at school, until he is defended by Christian, a new boy who has just moved with his father from London and whose mother recently died with cancer. Elias and Christian start a friendship. However, Christian involves Elias in a terrible plan of revenge. The film is interesting. It shows people as beings that reveals the same reactions and emotions. It doesn’t matter the circunstances. William Johnk Nielsen and Markus Rygaard (Christian and Elias, respectively) are terrific in the roles. The shinning star here is Mikael Persbrandt (Elias’s father, Anton). He has the ability to show emotions pretty only by his look. Mikael will be in the next two films of Peter Jackson: “The Hobbit – Part 1” and “The Hobbit – Part 2”. Let’s if he can take off. Susanne Bier, the director, has an average work. She uses too much sticky soundtracks in sad times of the film, making it a bit sentimental. The film will involve the audience, the idea is complex and it’s pretty well developed, but it should be more realistic and less sentimental due to theme. Although its negative caracteristics, “In a Better World” is a refreshment in world where the American cinema rules with blockbuster and fool screenplays and has a right to yout title.
