The Commune (2016)


Thomas Vinterberg directs Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen and Martha Sofie Wallstrøm in this drama about a Danish family who open up their home to communal living. 

A wry and well realised drama that focuses more on a break-up of a family than the amusing politics of communal living that serve as the back drop. It is perfectly cast and sensitive to all characters yet, somewhat inevitably though, a little inconsequential. Reminded me of The Ice Storm in more than just its shared period aesthetics.
