A Second Chance

A Second Chance ★★★★

When it comes to drama films that feels in your entire body, Susanne Bier is a master (well not all of her movies, but many),. I was going to the theatre to watch her latest danish/swedish movie En Chance Til when it was released but then I totally forgot about it until last week when I found it on an ex rental really cheap. En Chance Til asks the viewer questions like what would you do?, what is right and what is wrong? and even though you know what's morally right, they're impossible to answer unless you're (god forbid) in a similar situation yourself. What if? As a father to a 8 month old son, this was one of the most difficult movies I've ever seen. That one scene really took me by surprise and when the movie was over I thanked my lucky stars and reminded myself not to take anything for granted. A rough watch but a really good one!
