|This movie is Danish.
It is a bit too boring for my taste. I have never been a fan of the accredited Danish social realism, and even though this is not that as such, you still seem to get a taste of it while watching Skytten.
I am however a fan of the male main character Kim Bodnia. I am, however, not a fan of the female main character, Trine Dyrholm, which destroys the movie a bit for me.
The movie does handle an important and relevant topic. It shows that shooting at people is not a good way to solve anything, whether or not it might of paramount importance for the survival of the human race, and it actually manages to leave you feeling unsure of whether it actually changed anything. It raises the question “should you respond with violence, when you do not agree with the politicians?”. I will just leave that open for now...
