Another Round

Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film in 2021.

Take one part deftly directed tragicomedy, add a dash of Mads Mikkelsen in vintage form, and you’ve got Another Round — an intoxicating look at midlife crises.

There is a theory that we should be born with a proportion of alcohol in our blood.

That humble intoxication opens our minds to the world around us, lessens our problems and increases our creativity.

Buoyed by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all tired high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the day.

If Churchill won World War II with a heavy alcohol addiction, who knows what a few drops could do for them and their students?

The first results are positive and the small project of the teachers has been elevated to a real academic study that produces results.

A heady, vibrant, funny film about Danish drinking culture and middle-aged angst. But it also speaks to the great personal pain that lies hidden within its frames.

Another Round is made irresistible by Mikkelsen: such a noble face, such a wonderful presence even when most withdrawn, battered and saddened.
