Description

Four friends, all teachers at various stages of middle age, are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, they embark on an audacious experiment from an obscure philosopher: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness. At first they each find a new- found zest, but as the gang pushes their experiment further, issues that have been simmering for years come to a head and the men are faced with a choice: reckon with their behavior or continue on the same course. Underscored by delicate and affecting camerawork, director Thomas Vinterberg's spry script, co-written with regular collaborator Tobias Lindholm, uses this bold premise to explore the euphoria and pain of an unbridled life. Playing a once brilliant but now world-weary shell of a man, the ever surprising Mads Mikkelsen delivers a fierce and touching performance.

    I never write reviews. A poignant and lovely film that only got better and better. Mads is a great actor and this may be one my favorites of his! Wonderful story with some visceral acting. Highly recommend.

    Superb actors, script and editing. One of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. There are so many layers to this movie, it will make you think about your own life. My hope is that Americans don't ruin it in making it in an american version. I just rewatched the Danish ORIGINAL movie "After the Wedding" directed by Suzanne Bier and again it was hijacked by Americans and watered down into cliches. Pfffff. Don't settle for less, people!

    This is a wonderful movie: sad, funny, frightening, uplifted - it covers a wide spectrum. Mikkelson gives a wonderful, full bodied performance.

    Here’s to “Another Round” of realism on film. This is a movie that takes one through the many complexities of everyday life; particularly related to close, life-long friendships and alcohol consumption. I found this film to be relatable and timely. I would recommend to others.

    Interesting premise, but sooo slow and very talky. Low dramatic stakes don’t help either
  • Never ending
