Stine has always been a quiet girl. When she was young, she lied about herself and her family on numerous occasions. When she fell off her bike, she told her teacher she had been beaten by her parents. When she wanted attention, she told her friends that her mother suffered from cancer.
In Anklaget (English title: Accused), Stine is 14 years old. She spends her days alone in her room, no friends around. One day, she accuses her father of incest. Even though she is a known pathological liar, her accusations are taken very serious and her father is arrested.
Danish film director Jacob Thuesen makes you realise that the father is judged by his neighborhood, friends and colleagues, no matter the outcome of his trial. Will the father find justice? Will he find peace? Will he end up in jail? Definitely visit this film if you get the chance!
