Good movie. Well directed, acted. Good character profiles. Probably 20 mins too long in the end but very enjoyable
A manager of an orphanage in India is sent to Copenhagen, Denmark, where he discovers a life-altering family secret. The film is well made and brilliantly acted. But the script does not offer anything shattering which is what its synopsis on IMDb promises.
Wanted to watch but ther were no Sub Titles so make sure you get a copy that has them if there is one
What a wonderfully unexpected surprise After The Wedding proved to be. A gentle, thought-provoking film with a fine cast, an intelligent script and a storyline that keeps you guessing. Those who dismiss non-Anglo films because they won't read subtitles really do themselves a disservice.
This is a very fine movie with engaging characters and plot. Great acting.
Really good movie. Mads was in good form and it had a really good twist to it.
A stunning interplay between camera, script, and strengths of actors
Multi-layered. Posed many questions about life and values. Well worth waiting for an undamaged DVD.
Europeans do this sort of movie much better than Hollywood; just let the script tell the story with no huge dramatics. Interesting camera work with lots of extreme close-ups. I enjoyed this movie immensely.
I thought it was interesting, but sometimes frustrating as the stepfather kept speaking swedish and I can only understand danish. Mikkelsen is great as always, little wonder he is a Bond movie.
Well made Scandinavian film with clear cut characterisation and an interesting plot.
A story of controlling love that isn't love at all... Where is this power freaks respect for his wife, his daughter, and Jokob. The film also re-enforces that everyone has a price.
I enjoyed this movie. I always find it refreshing to watch films that are not from the Brit/American "factories"I agree that the plot is a little contrived and the scenes in Inda did not ring true for me. I am however a big fan of Mads so like to have a look at anything he has done. Over all a great movie Worth watching.
This movie is mostly in Danish with no sub titles! Unwatchable!
Best movie I have seen in years. still thinking about it.
Found this very fascinating and engrossing, highly recommended.
Good film, interesting plot
If you can overlook the plot device that has a young bride of a well connected Danish family choosing to tell the assorted guests at her wedding breakfast that the man she calls father is, in fact, not her biological father, you will love this.
I couldn't overlook it. It just didn't make sense to me that this would happen.
So why 4 stars??? Because aside from this unbelievable development, this is a superb story that is extremely well acted.
Mads Mikelson (from Casino Royale) is a teacher in an orphanage in a Mumbai slum. The CEO of a big Danish corporation is thinking about a multi-million dollar sponsorship of the orphanage-but insists on Mikelson meeting with him in Copenhagen before green lighting the deal. He has ulterior motives. Mads and the CEO's attractive wife may have been connected years earlier. Find out what happens. Rent this. Just accept that brides might do some stupid things on their big day!!!
Could not understand this Movie at all
Sorry. It didn't do anything for me
A powerful story of love and the intricate webbing of it.
I really enjoyed this movie, engaging on so many levels.
Don't miss it!
An emotionally-charged, deeply moving drama due to a first-rate script and close camera-work giving the four principal actors every opportunity to excel which they do brilliantly.
Enjoyed this film, well acted, great cast. Wonderful scenes of India. Plot a bit unlikely!
i loved it - kept me guessing the whole way. very convincing beautiful movie
Beautiful, intelligent, and well shot. Highly recommended
Nicely paced, intelligent script, well acted... and those exquisite slow lingering close-ups
It was very thoguht provoking and encouraging.
A great movie, deserving of its many awards. Goes to prove it can be done with no violence, no sex, no swearing. The motivations are as puzzling to the viewer as they are to the characters. Once revealed it starts making sense and you feel for the characters’ various dilemmas.
