ANGELIKA’S NOTE

"Pop some champagne, crack open the whisky and guzzle back that ice-cold beer. The feelgood film of this or any festival has arrived, and it's a boozy-woozy marvel" (Times, UK). ANOTHER ROUND is being heralded by critics - rated 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes - and took home awards at the San Sebastian, London and Ghent International Film Festivals. From director Thomas Vinterberg and featuring a career-best performance by Mads Mikkelsen, this is a fun, moving, life-affirming and thought-provoking drama about friendship, freedom, love – and alcohol.

SYNOPSIS

There’s a theory that we should be born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood, and that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students? Initial results are positive, and the teachers’ little project turns into a genuine academic study. Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, some of the participants see further improvement and others go off the rails. It becomes increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fueled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.
