Brief Synopsis – A group of friends who are bored with their lives as teachers decide to try an experiment by being slightly drunk all the time which they hypothesize will make their lives and work more inspirational.
Bottom Line – Very interesting film that has a bold premise that just isn’t engaging enough.. Seeing the way that these characters deal with their mid life crisis has its moments, yet most of the time, the story just doesn’t flow well enough. Mads Mikkelsen is fine in the lead, but he isn’t able to make us really believe that people would do the things that he does here.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Instead of having two sons, the character played by Mads Mikkelsen was originally meant to have a son and a daughter, the latter to be played by director Thomas Vinterberg’s daughter Ida Maria Vinterberg. However, Ida was killed in a car crash in Belgium four days into filming, before she was planned to film her scenes. The film is dedicated to her. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
