O.V. in Danish subtitled in Spanish
Clearly, Thomas Vinterberg (Celebration, The Hunt, The Commune) is interested in the functioning of closed human communities, like real volcanoes about to erupt, he relishes on showing us its explosions. Like the one in this film, in which a group of teachers decide to carry out an experiment: maintaining a constant rate of alcohol in the blood throughout the day in order to see how the resulting drunkenness improves their daily lives. Mads Mikkelsen leads the (shaky) cast of the film, which won the prestigious Silver Shell for Best Performance in San Sebastian.

Born in Denmark in 1969, Vinterberg became known as a co-founder of the Dogma 95 film movement with Lars Von Trier, and for his second feature film, the controversial Celebration (1998), for which he won numerous awards, including a Jury Prize at Cannes and the Discovery Award from the European Film Academy. In 2002, he broke away from the principles of Dogma with It's All About Love, his first English-language film, followed by Dear Wendy (2005). Some of his most outstanding titles in recent years include When a Man Comes Home (2007), Submarine (2010), The Hunt (2012), Far from the Madding Crowd (2015), The Commune (2016) and Kursk (2018). Another Round, his latest film, premiered in Toronto and won three awards in San Sebastian: the Signis Award, Feroz Award and a Silver Shell to the performance of its four protagonists.
