Another Round

Another Round ★★★★

VIFF 2020 #7

There's definitely a shred of truth in this theory of a blood alcohol defecit, and the film gets that across quite well. I definitely notice an increase in confidence, extroversion, creativity, and relaxation with a drink or two in me, which can be very useful in a lot of situations. However, it also shows the perils of taking your things too far. Both sides of the argument get equal attention and emphasis, which keeps the film from feeling like "pro-alcohol propaganda". That's good writing.

Took a little while to really get going, but that just made the humour of the second act shine even more in contrast with the seriousness of the first.

This is black comedy done right. Thomas Vinterberg and Mads Mikkelsen are a match made in heaven.

The dancing scene is cinema in its purest form. I just wish it didn't end so soon.
