Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #45. Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune

10 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Commune

Director: Thomas Vinterberg

Writers: Tobias Lindholm, Thomas Vinterberg

With a career resurgence following his 2012 The Hunt (earning Mads Mikkelsen a Best Actor Award at Cannes as well as snagging an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film), Dogme Godfather Thomas Vinterberg mounted a handsome adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd, which enjoyed decent critical reception following a release from Fox Searchlight. His latest, The Commune, co-written by director Tobias Lindholm (whose excellent new feature, A War was Denmark’s official Oscar entry this year), follows a 1970s academic couple who join a commune in Hellrup with their daughter. But things get interesting when the patriarch’s girlfriend also moves in. Though this sounds an awful lot like Swedish auteur Lukas Moodysson’s 2000 feature Together, we’re excited to see Vinterberg’s return with Lindholm (who also scripted Submarino and The Hunt) in a film »
