Movie Haiku:2011 Oscar Winner from Denmark (BFLF): Beautifully crafted meditation on masculinity focuses on doctor (Persbrandt) trying to set a good example for his son given all the modern complexities. On the one hard, walking the line between mensch & wimp has always been difficult, but in a more hierarchical world, most individuals have less autonomy/responsibility.
