Thomas Vinterberg / Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands 2019 / 117 min / Cert 12A / subtitles
Winner of both the Oscar for Best International Film and its BAFTA equivalent this is an intoxicating and tragicomic look at male midlife crises. Teachers Martin (Mads Mikkelsen), Tommy Peter and Nikolaj are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, the friends embark on an audacious experiment to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will lead them to greater freedom and happiness. Written and directed by Thomas Vinterberg (Festen, The Hunt) with a surprising lack of piety. A Hollywood remake is already planned. A heady, vibrant and funny film - The Independent.
