Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader To the movie's credit, writer-director Michael Noer and his cowriter, Jesper Fink, provide enough plot twists to upend viewer expectations about the nature of evil in this study of human savagery. Oct 10, 2018 Full Review Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter A bleak and fiercely acted tale of rural strife. Sep 8, 2018 Full Review Yasser Medina Cinefilia It evokes a certain realism developing its portrait of the condition of peasants in a rural area, with a solid performance from Jesper Christensen, but that doesn't prevent the narrative from weakening like the burnt hay. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Matt Cipolla Film Monthly It all points to something deeper and more consistent, but the result is never more than the sum of its parts. Rated: 3/5 Jul 25, 2020 Full Review Sarah Ward Screen International While this 1850s-set period effort trades in obvious truisms, it weaves its familiar elements into a grim and gripping drama... Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Kent Turner With its emphasis on nature and its mudbound farmers, this beautifully crafted film recalls other earthly European historical dramas set in an isolated countryside. Rated: 3/5 Sep 24, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
