Come down to the Canopy for the award winning Danish Another Round!
It’s an intoxicating celebration of life and a sobering examination of midlife crisis that illuminates the inebriating delights & euphoric pleasures of alcohol influence with heart & humour without ever shying from the havoc it can cause when consumed in excess. Blending the elements of comedy, drama & tragedy into a vibrant, effervescent & invigorating mix which is brilliantly spearheaded by a stellar showcase from the ever-reliable Mads Mikkelsen. Co-written & Directed by Thomas Vinterberg, the film reunites him with the brilliant Mikkelsen. Vinterberg takes a naturalistic & humanistic approach to bring his story to life and offers a fascinating take on the role of alcohol in Danish culture (or any culture for that matter). The plot concerns four friends who test out an alcohol experiment to enliven their banal professional & personal lives, and it is compelling throughout.
Winning the Best International Feature Film at the Academy Awards and a BAFTA for Best Film Not in the English Language it’s not to be missed!
