After the Wedding

Following Adam's Apples, I went to see yet another Danish film in my favourite theatre tonight: After the Wedding (warning: flash content) by Susanne Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen (who wrote the apple tree story), starring once again Mads Mikkelsen.

I will only say three things about this movie, because the plot has so many surprises that I wouldn't want to spoil it for you; that was the first thing. While on the subject of the plot, I have to say that it's a great story, which never felt forced or unreal in any way, maybe apart from two cheesy scenes towards the end. And finally: it's been a while since I went to a movie that would stimulate my lachrymal glands in a noticeable way; this one did.

Highly recommended.
