Another Round

Another Round ★★★★

Effective and deeply relatable. You could easily label what these men are going through as a midlife crisis, but who among us hasn't found our job or lives in general to become mundane and meaningless at some point? I like how dabbling with alcohol is framed like an experiment, increased after promising first results, but then pushed too far. There is sorrow in the aftermath of overindulgence, but the film ends on a joyful note with celebration and some tremendous dancing. Although I enjoyed all four lead actors and found them highly believable as close friends and colleagues, Mikkelsen in particular is wonderful as Martin, who truly comes alive through this entire experience.
