The newest collaboration between Mads Mikkelsen and Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, Festen). Winner of the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film, and the BAFTA for Best Film Not in the English Language.
There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.
Intrigued, Martin (Mikkelsen) and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on a risky experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. Initial results are positive, but as the units are knocked back and stakes are raised, it becomes increasingly clear that some bold acts carry severe consequences.
“A heady, vibrant, funny film, with a brilliant performance from Mads Mikkelsen” – The Independent
“A career-high turn from Mads Mikkelsen” – The Times
“A slightly flippant tragicomedy of booze and midlife defiance, based on a pseudoscientific theory which put me in mind of Humphrey Bogart’s bleary dictum about the rest of the world being three drinks behind.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“It’s not just Mikkelsen in the lead, but three supporting actors including Festen’s Thomas Bo Larsen who give the film its can’t-look-away dynamic.” – Screen International
“Another Round is a truly wonderful movie about trying to come to grips with life, anchored by terrific performances, infectious music, and a real understanding of the humming discontentment that all adults must learn to navigate in their own ways.” – Vox
