Thomas Vinterberg directs Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen and Magnus Millang in the comedy where four middle aged teachers experiment with day drinking to see if it improves their stagnant professional and social lives.
The Danish remake of Men Behaving Badly gets the balance between laughs and drama exactly right. You always expect an impeccable standard from Mikkelsen when he is in the lead, but the whole ensemble here is on fine fettle. The unexpected but well set-up finale has to be one the strongest endings to any 21st century movie, leaving you on a buzzing high.
