“Both heartbreakingly sad and outrageously joyous.” – Andrew Young, Film Inquiry
Inspired by an academic thesis suggesting humans are born with a 0.05 deficit in blood alcohol content, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) and three of his teacher buddies – all middle-aged men – decide to put the theory to the test. Early results are encouraging: after a couple of shots of vodka in the morning, Martin is transformed into a confident and charismatic shaper of young minds, his formerly chaotic and dull history class sparks with revelation and debate. Even his numb, sterile marriage jerks back to life. His pals report similar successes. Clearly, it’s time to kick this project up a notch… This intoxicating dark comedy from celebrated Danish director Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration) bristles with a subversive, anarchic spirit, that, conveyed through the go-for-broke performance by Vinterberg’s frequent collaborator Mikkelsen (The Hunt), hints at the existential angst hovering over the comical, socially irresponsible behavior. (Dir. by Thomas Vinterberg, 2020, Denmark/Sweden/Netherlands, in Danish/Swedish with English subtitles, 117 mins., Not Rated)
