There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.
Intrigued, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on a risky experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday.
Initial results are positive, but as the units are knocked back and stakes are raised, it becomes increasingly clear that some bold acts carry severe consequences.
In 2021, Another Round won an Academy Award as a Best International Feature Film, a Bafta as Best Film Not in The English Language; a Cesar, three prizes in San Sebastian, one in the London Film Festival and several others awards and nominations.
“A heady, vibrant, funny film, with a brilliant performance from Mads Mikkelsen” – The Independent
“An intoxicated tale of midlife angst and catharsis and better living through Aquavit.” – Entertainment Weekly
