Product Description

On the surface Henrik and Nina Christofferson (Sofie Gråbøl) are an ordinary family living happily. But they have a problem. Their daughter, Stine, a difficult 14 year old, has a habit of telling lies in class. When Stine accuses her father of sexual abuse, and is believed by seemingly eager social workers, their family is thrust into crisis. Could Henrik have done it? And when Stine prepares to return home, the ugly side of family life is exposed. Echoing themes seen in the recent Danish hit The Hunt, the accused will appeal to all fans of Nordic Noir and Scandinavian cinema alike - starring Sofie Gråbøl and Soren Malling from The Killing.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: Danish ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: At first glance, Henrik, Nina and Stine seem to be a perfectly average family. Henrik is a swimming teacher and his wife Nina is a secretary. If this well-heeled middle-class couple have a problem at all then it's their 14-year-old daughter. Stine's going through a difficult phase, she seems to be distancing herself from her parents. Somebody Stine does communicate with, however, is the school therapist. One day she astounds him by accusing her father of having committed a heinous crime. The authorities lose no time in instructing Stine to leave her parent's house. Henrik is arrested and taken to a prison. He remains behind bars throughout the duration of his trial. In spite of the enormous psychological strain and the fact that their friends begin to turn their back on Henrik, Nina stands by her husband until he is finally acquitted. Months pass before the parents are able to see their daughter again and talk about what happened. It's high time for a reconciliation during which the dark side of this ostensibly normal family begins to emerge. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Berlin International Film Festival, European Film Awards, Stockholm Film Festival, ...Accused (2005) ( Anklaget )

By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Henrik and Nina are happily married, he works as a Swimming Instructor and she is devoted to him. They do have a troubled teen daughter, who we find out is withdrawn, needs counselling and is prone to making things up. Then Henrik gets a call seemingly out of the blue, that lets him know that his daughter Stine, has accused him of sexually abusing her on a number of occasions. The authorities waste no time taking action.

What happens next seems to be totally unreal and Henrik is judged without trial by so many people. As more people find out, the strain on his marriage and also sanity start to take a heavy toll.

This was originally released in 2005, but it stars Sofie Gråbøl as Nina who has found deserved fame in TV series `The Killing' and if you are a fan check her out in `Aftermath' too for an outstanding performance. This then is another Nordic Noir treat, set in Denmark it is a story that is completely gripping and will hold your attention from the very start, a thing the Scandinavians seem to do rather well. This tackles a very dark subject and does so in a responsible way, but it is the anxiety and tension that had me transfixed.

It is also completely unpredictable which just added to the whole experience. The cast are all superb and as expected the direction and pacing are flawless. In Danish with really good sub titles and a smidgen of English. When you see quality you just know it is, almost instinctively, and this most certainly is that - ruddy excellent. If recent successes are going to cause more of these films to be resurrected, then keep them coming, I am a now a committed fan to the whole genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot to think about 11 Jun 2013
By Birgit
The film is very thought provoking and the suspense is kept up until the very last minute. It is not fast paced though, in fact it is the slow feeling of ordinariness which makes the suspense mount.
Troels Lybye as the loving father who's accused of abusing his daughter is incredibly convincing - and the story hinges on his ability to convince us of who he is and what he is capable or not capable of.
You are constantly wondering whether he can be guilty or whether he's being hounded by authorities who are suffering from hysteria.
And you don't know for sure until the very last few minutes of the film.

4.0 out of 5 stars another danish classic 1 July 2013
By cartoon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Certainly a clever film about a man who is accused of sexually abusing his daughter . Slow paced , building tension and surprise ending , great movie to fill the Saturday night gap now that killing / borgen has finished and of course great to see my fav Sofie Grabol in such a different role . Having seen the Hunt earlier in the year I did keep making comparisons and I do feel that this is more a tv style film with a lot smaller ambitions .

5.0 out of 5 stars Accused (Anklaget) [DVD] Sofie Gråbøl 10 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Accused (Anklaget) a truly marvellous story, marvelously acted and a great story - compelling and very entertaining. Right from the opening credits to closing credits you are deep engaged in this wonderful drama, and cannot take your eyes away from your TV screen. Remarkable and thoroughly engaging. A great buy fully recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A accusation of 'child abuse' story 28 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The supporting text for in that the story is about a child accussing her father of abuse. It implies that it is similar to the excellent Danish film called 'The Hunt'.

Yes it is, but only in the fact that it about a child abuse accusation. The story delivery and the way the story ends is totally different. To me this was better than The Hunt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Danish film for grown ups. 2 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is true adult entertainment. It has nothing in common with those sub films labelled ' Adult' to attract the seedy movie goer.
