I really admire this great Japanese poster artwork for After the Wedding (Efter brylluppet). The split panel is a nice touch that really helps to display the emotion of the film. This Susanne Bier (director) and Anders Thomas Jensen (screenwriter) collaboration certainly pays off, although the extremely tight framing still seems at times strange to me.
After the Wedding is currently out on US Region 1 DVD via IFC.
In addition to the always solid Mads Mikkelsen in the film (whom you can just barely spot in the top wedding photograph above), Stine Fischer Christensen does a great job in a supporting role. I’ve seen her around in various other films, but it really was her work here that made a lasting impression on me. She is also featured in my favorite movie so far of 2008, Echo, as Angelique.
Official still used in the original Japanese poster artwork for this film.
