Four middle-aged high school teachers, feeling dissatisfied in their lives, decide to test the obscure philosophical theory that a human's natural state is slight inebriation. Initially, their experiment seems successful, but they soon discover that every action has its consequences.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Kelsey Thomas Profile picture for Kelsey Thomas

ANOTHER ROUND is as enjoyable as it is emotional. Initially, the film celebrates alcohol and the jubilance caused by even slight inebriation, but the story ultimately favors nuance. A great film that offers insight into the drinking culture in Denmark, one that has, up until now, gone fairly unrepresented on the big screen. But for moralizing, look elsewhere — this film defies all expectations to do so.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

90

TheWrap by Alonso Duralde

Vinterberg and Lindholm take a substantive look at substance abuse, placing it in character context and avoiding dramatic hysterics. Another Round is a film of more quiet desperation and a more thoughtful morality, and it goes down with a kick.
80

Screen Daily by Fionnuala Halligan

Another Round (Druk) is a funny film which is also desperately sad, a superficially amusing indictment of drinking culture which is much more bitter than sweet.
95

Polygon by Karen Han

Vinterberg’s ending offers an unlikely sense of catharsis, even though it isn’t truly happy, turning the film into something fresh and affecting. On top of all that, the film provides the opportunity to watch Mikkelsen give perhaps his best performance yet.
75

Entertainment Weekly by Leah Greenblatt

Mikkelsen has become perhaps Denmark’s most familiar face Stateside over the past decade. But he still feels most in his skin in roles like these, and in Round’s final ecstatic scene, the actor does what only true stars seem able to: Take the silly or messy or improbable, and make it fly.
83

The Playlist by Marshall Shaffer

There are not “funny” moments or “dramatic” moments for their characters; there are simply “human” moments. Whether people react to them with laughter, pity or some combination of them both may say more about themselves than the film.
40

Variety by Owen Gleiberman

Another Round is the kind of movie that’s so into its cool concept that it doesn’t sweat the details. Yet the film’s sloppy broadness ends up fighting the Dogme style, which keeps telling us that these people are authentic.
60

The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

The performances are persuasive and watchable, especially Mikkelsen, the guys’ alpha-leader, who ruinously makes being drunk look pretty acceptable until it is too late.
70

The Hollywood Reporter by Stephen Dalton

Another Round ultimately has little fresh or profound to say about intoxication and addiction, but it is an engaging tribute to friendship, family and bacchanalian hedonism in moderation.
