Description

Winner of the Academy Award for Best International Film earlier this year, ‘Another Round’ (the English title) stars the great Mads Mikkelsen as one of four unhappy middle-aged teachers who, after learning about real-life psychiatrist Finn Skårderud’s belief that humans are born with a blood-alcohol level that is too low, decide to conduct an experiment: they will stay at least a little bit drunk all the time. Needless to say, what begins as a lark soon takes a turn for the worse… ‘Tragedy, comedy and Kierkegaard collide like the highs and lows of an alcohol binge in Thomas Vinterberg’s latest… Mischievously unruly in tone (“scandalous” is Vinterberg’s preferred word), yet shot through with a flinty shard of sadness, it’s the Danish director’s finest and most personal film since 1998’s “Festen”—a heady cocktail of ecstasy and grief, buoyed by a superb ensemble cast. At the centre of its maddening spell is a magnificently modulated performance by Mads Mikkelsen, who… offers here the performance of a lifetime.’—Mark Kermode, The Observer
