Jagten (The Hunt) causes real discomfort. The events unfolding are somehow too predictable – immediately, at the first hint that sexual abuse may have taken place, the epic consequences are obvious. What is not obvious is how the main character, the person accused, reacts (or fails to react). In the end he is forced to get used to his misfortune. In the last scene everything is back to normal or so it seems. But something has changed. There are those who out of spite continue act as if there is still doubt. And there is the main character, aware of this, but mainly however conscious of how one’s own community can overnight turn against you, completely, with no pity, tolerance or willingness to listen.
