Celebration of life.
Verified purchase
How many of us live a life that we think ended years ago? The four characters of Another Round are teachers in a Secondary School, who have peaked and waiting for middle age to fade to old. One relates a theory that human beings perform better with a slightly higher alcohol level. The experiment is duly started to test this hypothesis. Starting success leads to greater amounts of alcohol being consumed with predictable results. The film isn’t about celebrating drinking to excess to achieve some of the freedom we once had, but it will remind how we can let the best things slip by without noticing.

Good film, love Mikka
Verified purchase
I really like Mads Mikkelsen and I love Danish films, so this is clearly a biased review. The film is easy to watch and is overall interesting and not pretentious which is rare. However, the plot is sometimes a little bit predictable and some characters are not developed enough. I liked the dance scene at the end, it evokes something sad, defiant and also beautifu about it. But then, Mads Mikkelsen dancing - what's there not to like? The guy is gorgeous. I'd watch him do anything.

Skål! Another Round enters my top 10 movie list
Verified purchase
A wonderful film. The 1940's classic Whisky Galore suggests many of us were born a dram short, and the great characters in this movie - middle-aged mildly disillusioned Danish teachers - also consider the idea. They experiment to find out what the ideal constant amount of alcohol in the blood stream should be - which starts off fine, but pretty soon the experiment gets out of hand!
Arguably Mads Mikkelsen's best performance - and that's saying a lot - but all of the characters and their families are superbly fleshed out. It's a wrench when the film ends - you want to see much more of their complex lives, which are both very Danish and very much the lives all of us live. 10/10

Mads doing what he does best!
Verified purchase
Been waiting a long time for this and was not disappointed, the acting of all the stars was just brilliant. The film is sometimes funny and sometimes sad and that's what makes it so watchable. Danish films have the knack of getting the balance right every time. Mads plays the part beautifully and you're rooting for him all the way, the bonus is the ending when you get to see him doing what he loves. I won't give it away but 100% one of his best films.

What a film
Verified purchase
This is a beautiful film. It's not overly happy or joyful, and actually quite sad in parts. But there are some very funny scenes, and it's a really lovely balance of pathos and humour.
Really recommended, so much food for thought here.

Sentimental
Verified purchase
The atmosphere is, to state the obvious, very Danish and the nuances of life there, either in the classroom, or in their homes, are captured realistically. There is no stand out performance, for me, they all play beautifully. But, I was left with a feeling that much like another round, there really wasn't a point to it all. It romanticises the stupidity of excess, and the lead, despite no redeeming characteristics, still gets to win at the end, though whether he collected his prize is left hanging...

Well crafted, thought-provoking and very watchable
Verified purchase
Beautiful performance by Mads Mikkelsen (and all four of the male leads). A simple thought experiment about alcohol in daily life: a great "what-if" film. Tricky to pull off, but I think it captures the glamour of alcohol and its prevalence in our lives as well as some indication of the degradation and loss it brings with it. A lot of really funny moments. One of those I'm happy to watch again.

I'll Drink To This
Verified purchase
A brilliant, inventive and funny movie, beautifully played and ultimately joyously uplifting. in a nutshell four middle aged teachers decided to live their lives as functioning alcoholics - in the name of science. Never boorish, sometimes outrageous but delivered with massive charm by all involved.
