After the Wedding ( Efter Brylluppet)

Is a film I have spent watching after eagerly awaiting its arrival on DVD, It actually arrived with Out of the Tunnel and I have been gripped and had to watch it as I need to practise my Swedish/Danish as they are phonetically similar though they are written differently.

It is a most entertaining bittersweet film that cannot fail to cause emotions to fully express themselves from both men and women. I say that with absolute conviction and full marks to Susanne Bier for making the film exactly 2 hours long. It stars Mads Mikkelsen better known for his role as Le Chiffre in the Casino Royale Bond film and I would urge you if you if you have not seen it to buy a DVD and watch it.

I shall not post any spoilers but shall quote very badly from the New Testament instead, What does it serve a man to gain the whole world but to lose his life. Apologies for any mistakes in the quote but I feel that it is an excellent one.
