The director of The Hunt and The Celebration, Thomas Vinterberg is back with a typically probing, sparky dissection of midlife marital turbulence. Anna (Berlin Festival Best Actress Trina Dyrholm) and Erik (Ulrich Tomsen) are a successful middle class Danish couple, but things are a little stale in their relationship. So when Erik inherits the large house he grew up in, Anna insists that they should move in and invite some friends to join them in a commune (this is the 1970s). Erik reluctantly agrees, and Anna’s flirtation with bohemian living backfires when she learns that once opened, her marriage is all but over.

Trina Dyrholm was named Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival for her stunning performance as Anna, a TV newsreader who slides into despair when Erik falls in love with a younger colleague. Meanwhile Vinterberg, who was raised on a commune himself, oscillates between affectionate mockery, satire and sympathy for these well-meaning but flawed individuals, who find that high ideals aren’t so easy to accommodate at close quarters.

«An intimate, bittersweet study of communal living drenched in the unfiltered weed smoke and wide-wale corduroy of 1970s Copenhagen.» Leah Greenblat, Entertainment Weekly
