In their first collaboration since THE HUNT, Thomas Vinterberg reunites with actor Mads Mikkelsen for ANOTHER ROUND. Once the brightest teacher at his high school, Martin has fallen into a seemingly permanent funk. He’s barely present in his classes – the students and their parents even attempt an intervention – and his marriage is slowly dissolving. At a birthday celebration, his three closest colleagues (all men), cajole teetotaller Martin into boozing along with them. They get progressively drunker and the shit-disturber of the group, Nikolaj tells them about an obscure philosopher who argued humans aren’t born with enough alcohol in their blood. As an ‘experiment’, he proposes they all drink constantly throughout the day to maintain the ‘proper’ blood-alcohol level of 0.05%.

Initially the boozing seems enormously beneficial. A reinvigorated Martin begins to engage with his students and shocks his long-suffering wife, Trine, with his new-found zest. But as the gang pushes their experiment further, issues that have been simmering for years come to the fore.

ANOTHER ROUND is a boisterous and sobering comedy about how men deal (and don’t deal) with aging – though underlying it all is a shared, unnerving suspicion they may never have actually grown up in the first place.

Thomas Vinterberg, Denemark, Sweden, Netherlands, 2020, 116 min. Danish & Swedish spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Magnus Millang, Lars Ranthe, Maria Bonnevie.
