Manslaughter (Drabet) is a 2005 Danish drama centered around a harmfully controversial relationship between an older man and his much younger student. The film is the third installment in a trilogy of films directed by Per Fly (The Bench, Arven). A melancholic schoolteacher named Carsten (Jesper Christensen) starts a surreptitious love affair with an anarchistic former student of his named Pil (Beate Bille). But his life and stature within his community are suddenly challenged when Pil is accused of being involved in a high-class robbery scheme. Carsten surprisingly sides with Pil and risks being exposed to his wife, colleagues and the government. He assists his beautiful muse in evading the police while helping her send strong political messages to the government. At the end of the day, Carsten can't help but wonder if Pil was worth losing it all. Manslaughter entices until the very last minute - a quality which helped it win the Nordic Council Film Prize in 2005. Jesper Christensen and Pernilla August also received great praise for stellar portrayals of their characters. Two thumbs up.moreless
