Danish Jewish movie director Susanne Bier on Sunday won an Oscar for her film, “In a Better World,” in the category for Best Foreign Language Film.
It marked the third time that a film from Denmark has taken
the prize, following "Babette's Feast" in 1988 and "Pelle the
Conquerer" in 1989.
The film, considered an Oscar
front-runner, revolves around
a grieving youngster who lashes out at a schoolyard bully and
an adult thug with disastrous consequences. In a parallel
storyline, a pal's father must confront a warlord who has been
terrorizing African villagers helped by his medical charity.
