      Jason Best Movie Talk The overuse of flashbacks is a little frustrating, but as the film slowly reveals its secrets - including the meaning of the enigmatic title - the slow-burning narrative becomes more compelling. Rated: 3/5 Sep 10, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member After an opening that shrinks the heart, "The Hour of the Lynx" shows how two opposed women try to help Drengen, a young boy played by Frederik Christian Johansen. Thanks to the slowly progression of the story, it is possible to notice the evolution in the character's emotions. Furthermore, the great use of flash-backs allows the spectator to dive into Drengen's childhood and to see the beautiful relationship between his grandfather and him as well as the unexpected change that turned his life upside down. Thanks to this movie, we learn that even the gloomiest stories could be illuminated by a ray of hope. Because even if the path is narrow, we all can try to become a lynx and find the twenty-fifth hour of the day when we can be happy, far away from the world that surrounds us.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Lots of dialogues related to psychology with a sad ending. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Nicely shot, moody, and stylish, its story is bleak, always downbeat and not overly interesting as it relies on a heavy dose of psychological interpretation to propel itself. The final few scenes help with the understanding of what goes before. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Starts out slow and uninteresting but as the actors and the direction picks up the pace, it becomes as effective as it initially presents itself. A strong ending equals redemption for many flaws throughout. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Very well performed by entire cast. Søren Malling is in a league of his own though. Very nicely shot and edited. Good story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
