The one star is for the unexpected Wings Of Desire reference
An outstanding tour-de-force performance by Mads Mikkelsen as the innocent man at the centre of a heinous accusation.
The acting and Vinterberg's directing is superb. A gut-wrenching film to watch, it only seems to get more intense and heartbreaking on repeated viewings.
