Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...
Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..
The Brady Bunch films never really seemed to do much business in the UK, and that’s a real pity. No foreknowledge of the series is required, and the first movie takes the Brady film and transplants them into 1990s America, with no »

The film will have its world premiere on the fest's opening day on August 30 in Sala Darsena.

Rome – Italian director Susanna Nicchiarelli’s biopic “Nico, 1988,” about the late German chanteuse who was among Andy Warhol’s muses and sang with the Velvet Underground, has been set as the opening film of the Venice Film Festival’s Horizons section dedicated to cutting-edge fare.
The hotly anticipated film will screen on August 30 in the Lido’s Sala Darsena.
Danish actress, singer and songwriter Trine Dyrholm, who won the 2016 Berlin Silver Bear for her role in Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Commune,” plays the title role in this biopic of sorts, which focuses on the years 1987 and 1988, the last two years of Nico’s life.
In the film Dyrholm brings “the artist-icon Nico back to life” playing the part “with her own voice and transforming herself physically,” according to a Venice statement.
“This is the story of Nico after Nico,” Nicchiarelli said in the statement.
“People usually talk about her only in relation to the men she was »

When watching dramas that come out of Europe, we tend to think that we’ll get some good Nordic Noir where there is plenty of murder and mystery. The Legacy though is a Danish family drama with no actual murder at all (well to be fair there is a death)… When Hannah (Karla Løkke) tragically dies while on a protest with her art group the Grønnegaard family is in turmoil, especially Frederik (Carsten Bjørnlund) her father. Coming together as a family they all look to find their place, and a way to carry on.
Starting on the third season probably isn’t the best with The Legacy, but this is what I found myself doing when reviewing it. What I found though was a story that was easy to pick up on, and a group of characters that may be flawed, but were easy to relate to, and to like. »

After getting a taste of Hollywood with his adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, Thomas Vinterberg headed back to Denmark for his next film, The Commune, adapted by Tobias Lindholm (his partner on The Hunt and Submarino, and a great director in his own right with A Hijacking and A War). Following a family whose move into a tiny community ends up tearing them apart, the film will finally arrive in the U.S. this summer via Magnolia and now the new trailer has landed.
We said in our review, “While surprisingly moderate by the pairing’s standards – no child molestation, lynch mobs, drug addiction, or suicide this time around – their latest attempt at dissecting the human condition ultimately reveals itself to be as cynical and glib as their previous collaborations.” Check out the trailer below for the film starring Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, Helene Reingaard Neumann, Lars Ranthe and Fares Fares. »

"I'm going to hold on to you for the rest of my life." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled an official Us trailer for a Danish drama titled The Commune, the latest film from Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg. This first premiered at last year's Berlin Film Festival, and is just now getting a Us release this summer more than a year later. The Commune is about exactly what the title says - a commune in Denmark in the 1970s. It plays with the idea of whether a commune, a collection of random people all living in one big house together, can actually work. The film's ensemble cast includes Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, Helene Reingaard Neumann, Lars Ranthe, Julie Agnete Vang and Fares Fares. I saw this at Berlinale last year, and it's pretty damn good, with some outstanding performances from the cast which make it better than it really is. Here's the »

While Danish cinema is shining at the Academy Awards with Martin Zandvliet’s “Land of Mine” up for a foreign-language Oscar, the local box office for Danish movies hit a low of 2.8 million ticket sales in 2016, a 33% year-on-year drop, according to the Danish Film Institute.
The market share for local movies last year dropped to 21%, compared with 30% share in 2015. Hans Petter Moland’s thriller “A Conspiracy of Faith” (704,971 admissions) and Birger Larsen’s comedy “The Reunion 3” (538,506 admissions) took the top two slots, respectively, of the chart, ahead of Hollywood blockbusters such as “The Revenant,” “Zootopia,” “Rogue One” and “Deadpool.”
The third highest-grossing Danish film is Thomas Vinterberg’s drama “The Commune,” which premiered at Berlin and earned Trine Dyrholm the best actress award. “The Commune” and “A Conspiracy of Faith” are the only Danish movies ranking in the top 10 which have had a high-profile international run.
