If we were in any doubt of the value of such abstract concepts as name, honour and reputation, Mikkelsen's raw performance in The Hunt reveals what happens when a man is left without them. His nobility in the face of this Kafka-esque experience is inspiring, moving and, frankly, astonishing, coming from the same man who gave Mr Bond a good seeing-to.
