Another Round

Dir. Thomas Vinterberg. Denmark, 2020. 1h 57m. Danish/Swedish/subs. Starring Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, Maria Bonnevie, Susse Wold, Albert Rudbeck Lindhardt, Martin Greis-Rosenthal.

Inspired by an obscure philosophical hypothesis linking blood alcohol level with productivity, four 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 clear that some acts carry severe consequences. Winner of Best International Film at this year’s Academy Awards, Thomas Vinterberg’s delightfully directed tragicomedy is an intoxicating look at male ego and midlife crises.

'Mischievously unruly in’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' ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

‘Drunkenness has rarely been done this well on screen, and Another Round convincingly captures the hilarious highs and devastating lows of a wonderfully ridiculous experiment…’ ★★★★★ Emma Simmonds, Radio Times
