Described by Devika Girish as “a sweet, strangely modest tragicomedy about the pleasures of (mostly banal) excess,” Another Round brings into sharp focus the pitfalls, absurdities, and joys of the unbridled life. Dedicated to Vinterberg’s daughter, Ida, who was tragically killed in a car crash in 2019 when the film was being made, it’s as much a heart-warming story of friendship and belonging as it is an ode to the freedoms and pleasures of youth.
With Tobias Lindholm (The Investigation) on board as co-writer, and Mads Mikkelsen starring in the lead role as depressed history teacher, Martin, it’s no surprise that this fun and richly layered story has received such high praise from audiences and critics alike.
