Danish Film Night
Danish Film Night returns to The Spotted Dog on Sunday with yet another double billing and a vast amount of cakes.
Bring your friends and hangovers down for some superb hair of the dog time at the Dog. The first film will be screened at about 16:00 and the second one some two hours later. Get here early for good seats and more cake options!
The two films on offer come courtesy of director by Thomas Vinterberg:
FESTEN (The Celebration)
Friends and family have arrived from near and far to celebrate Helge’s 60th birthday. The room is full and spirits are high. That is until Christian, Helge’s oldest son, holds up two speeches – one on yellow paper, one on green – and asks his father to choose.
Festen is the first film to come out of the dogma movement started in Denmark in 1995 by directors Thomas Vinterberg and Lars Von Trier. It adheres to the ten rules set in the Dogma95 manifesto and was one of twelve films chosen in 2006 as essential to the Danish cultural heritage.
JAGTEN (The Hunt)
Following his divorce, all Lucas really has is his friends and his job. That is until a co-worker shows interest in him and his son makes the custody battle that bit simpler by saying he wants to live there as opposed to at his mum’s, but Lucas’ luck is about to be changed by the littlest of lies.
Jagten was nominated for an Academy Award in 2014 for Best Foreign Language Film and won Mads Mikkelsen the Best Actor Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
