Critic Reviews for A Second Chance (En chance til)

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (3)

Unfortunately, the rest of the film, apart from the cast, has precious few redeeming features.

March 24, 2015 | Full Review…

There are some admirable, if hard-to-watch, moments here, but the film's thriller tendencies are as half-cocked as its compassion for the struggles of parenthood.

March 17, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Susanne Bier's latest is too obviously contrived to take its questions about what defines a deserving parent seriously.

September 24, 2014 | Full Review…

A Second Chance manages to pose a shocking moral quandary without falling into an academic exercise.

August 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Bier paints an impeccably bleak picture of her homeland, while Coster-Waldau sells the plot's more implausible moments with a nuanced performance of desperate realism.

July 19, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Together, Bier and Jensen totally devastate us. This is what they do.

Audience Reviews for A Second Chance (En chance til)

If they get a second chance, I hope that the pair of Bier & Jensen would offer something way better than this.
