Take one part deftly directed tragicomedy, add a dash of the excellent Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen in vintage form, and you’ve got Another Round — an intoxicating look at midlife crises. Four teachers whose lives are stuck
in a rut decide to test a psychiatrist’s theory that people perform better if they
are mildly drunk…
This brilliantly acted film offers a clear-eyed affirmation of the temptations and pleasures of alcohol, and also of the downsides. It won this year’s Oscar for the best foreign film.
