Accused (2005)

Highly Recommended
Feature Film
Original Title: Anklaget
Director: Jacob Thuesen
Writer: Kim Fupz Aakeson
Cinematographer: Sebastian Blenkov
Composer: Nikolaj Egelund
Cast: Troels Lyby, Sofie Gråbøl, Paw Henriksen, Louise Mieritz, Kirstine Rosenkrands Mikkelsen, Charlotte Sieling

With an outstanding performance from Lyby, Thuesen’s beautifully constructed, thoroughly engrossing, and thankfully non-sensational film paints an unblinking portrait of a happily married swimming instructor at the point at which he is accused of molesting his 14-year-old daughter, detailing the build-up to the court case and its emotionally devastating aftermath.
