Thomas Vinterberg’s rousing film, reuniting him with actor Mads Mikkelsen after 2012’s The Hunt, is a slightly flippant tragicomedy of booze and midlife defiance.


Four men — Martin (Mikkelsen), Tommy (Thomas Bo Larsen), Nikolaj (Magnus Millang), and Peter (Lars Ranthe) — are teachers at the same school. They lead relatively stable lives. Too stable, in fact, and things have gone stale for everyone.

One night, out celebrating Nikolaj’s 40th birthday as a quartet, they start to talk about the work of a well-known psychiatrist, Finn Skårderud, who proposed the theory that the human body is naturally 0.05 percent deficient in alcohol. Could life be better if they make up the difference? The theory, of course, is soon tested.

The film’s exuberance comes from moments of unpredictability, when the characters teeter on the precipice of either ecstasy or injury. It helps that Mikkelsen literally throws himself into the role; he’s all drunk swagger and wobbly limbs.

The Danish title is “Druk”, a term which is maybe best translated by adding the letter N before the one at the end. Another Round is as much bursting with warmth and wit as it is alcohol. Skål! (Jack Whiting)
