This Week’s Recommendation: A Second Chance


Title: A Second Chance
Denmark, 2014    
105 mins, language: Danish
Directed by Susanne Bier

A Second Chance was 760th film screened by RFS on 29th November 2016. It was the fifth ranked film of Season 54, with an audience rating of 88%.

To say much about the plot of Suzanne Bier's film about parenthood would be to risk depriving it of its power - the less you know going in, the better. The film is about a married couple, Anna and her policeman husband Andreas, and how they deal with their own tragedy.   Suffice to say it is about the choices we can make when faced with the 'unthinkable'. The film ia an example of how a 'perfect life', can suddenly turn into a living nightmare - and how the wrong choices can be devastating for everyone involved.

With the extraordinary screen presence of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, this is an entertaining, skilfully crafted and powerful social drama with many twists and turns.
