Storyline

There is a theory that man is born with half a per mille too little. That alcohol in the blood opens the mind to the outside world, problems seem smaller and creativity increases. We know it well; after the first glass of wine, the conversation lifts, the possibilities open up. Martin is a high school teacher. He feels old and tired. His students and their parents want him terminated to increase their average. Encouraged by the per mille theory, Martin and his three colleagues throw themselves into an experiment to maintain a constant alcohol impact in everyday life. If Churchill won World War II in a dense fog of spirits, what could the strong drops do for them and their students? The result is positive in the beginning. Martin's class is in a different way now, and the project is being promoted to a real academic study with the collection of results. Slowly, but surely, the alcohol makes the four friends and their surroundings loosen up. The results are rising, and they really begin... Written by Kenneth Kjær

Perfect story - Outstanding Mikkelsen
27 September 2020 | by sigurdboytangSee all my reviews

Thomas Vinterberg tells perfect stories of what alcohol can do. As a result of problems with teaching, private life, and general happiness - Four high school teachers agree to try an experiment exploring alcohol's influence. What happens when maintaining a constant promille of 0.5? Martin(Mads Mikkelsen) is the lead role, and the one we follow the most. He has an outstanding performance. The movie executes well to not have a biased opinion on drinking, but show the whole picture.

In the western world, Denmark is one of the countries with the most relaxed relationship to alcohol. The legal buying age is 16 and by high school a lot of students drink 20-50 units of alcohol a week.
