After the Wedding (2006) – Movie Wallpaper – Mads Mikkelsen, Stine Fischer Christensen & Sidse Babett Knudsen

on

The creative fusion of Anders Thomas Jensen and Susanne Bier turn in one of the more memorable family melodrama’s of this decade. IFC Films has this film out on home video and is a highly recommended video rental or purchase. Mads Mikkelsen turns in another stellar performance and Stine Fischer Christensen (who is also great in Echo) really plays her highly emotional and roller coaster role to perfection. Rolf Lassgard is also of note here as he steals nearly every scene he is in with a very gripping portrayal that as much as you want to hate him, you can’t help but ultimately feel sympathy. The in-your-face camera work does take a bit to get used to, but after awhile you won’t realize it and certainly adds more tension to the melodrama throughout.
