The annual DIFF festival took place this month despite the looming pandemic keeping cinemas closed, festival goers were able to log on to watch a diverse range of movies. As usual the surprise film always gathers the most buzz and this year was no different…. This years surprise movie was the Danish film ANOTHER ROUND (aka DRUK).
In the film, history teacher Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) finds himself in the midst of a mid-life crisis. His students are not reacting to his classes in the way that he hoped. Their opinionated parents are not too sympathetic either. His long-term marriage to Anika (Maria Bonnevie) has hit a bump in the road, with familiarity leading to the onset of staleness in their relationship. He needs something to pick up his spirits – or rather he needs spirits. Fond of alcohol, his friends and fellow teachers Tommy (Thomas Bo Larsen), Peter (Lars Ranthe) and Nikolaj (Magnus Millang) attempt to prove a theory that states the human body is lacking 0.05 blood alcohol content by keeping their alcohol intake at the correct level. Having set some ground rules, their lives begin to change dramatically…
