Another Round

Another Round ★★★★

Another Round certainly has an intriguing premise, great performances, and a charming script going for it. But what really makes this film stand out is brilliant direction from Thomas Vinterberg. For a film with several boozy escapades and wild moments, the style Vinterberg crafts in this movie is quiet, beautiful, and subtle.

There were a couple moments towards the end of the narrative that didn't work quite as well for me, or that I'm still not sure how I feel about. But as a whole, Another Round is a beautifully paced, wonderful experience. The tonal shifts are executed wonderfully, the camera work is nice, and Mads gives a great, understated performance.

I don't like international films, should I watch this? - sigh, look if watching subtitles is a deal breaker for you than I guess skip this. But... you should really just try to get used to it because you miss out on so many great films if you're unwilling to read.

Better for a casual or film-loving audience? - Film-loving. While this isn't as slow as Nomadland or as abstract as I'm Thinking of Ending Things, this is still a film probably best enjoyed by a more critical audience. The plot is a little less straightforward than most and the pacing may be a bit slow for some.
