Superhero movies got nothing on Danish cinema


You thought Marvel movies were all the same? Then you haven’t seen modern Danish cinema. Not saying it was a bad movie that shouldn’t have won, just that it’s unclear why this particular movie won instead of all the other movies like it.

As Meme from Batman Beyond said it:
Do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows it down?

SWEDEN: Nevermind.
NORWAY: I've got an idea. Let's watch one of Finland's movies!
SWEDEN: Oh God, no...
NORWAY: No, no, not one of those he made with your sister.
SWEDEN: Pheeew, good. I saw this one set during the Winter War where she travelled to Finland as a... volunteer.
NORWAY: Oh. What was the title?
SWEDEN: "Finlands kuk är min."
NORWAY: Oh, bloody hell...

(later)

SWEDEN: Hey, Finland! I liked that movie you made!
FINLAND: ............
DENMARK: You know, the one with just fourteen lines of dialogue!
FINLAND: ?
SWEDEN: The one which was set... I dunno, it was the countryside or a city. It was full of trees, anyway, and looked like a shithole.
FINLAND: ..........Could you be more specific?
NORWAY: Uh, the women were all angry and standoffish, and all the men were drunk.
FINLAND: Could you narrow it down a little?
SWEDEN: Uh... It looked cheap. The budget must've been tiny.
FINLAND:..........
NORWAY: The men were all fat and ugly, and the women looked like corpses.
FINLAND: Um...
SWEDEN: Jesus Christ, Finland...
NORWAY: Yeah, I thought Denmark was bad...

Maybe it was intended as a career award for the whole Danish film industry and they chose the most generic one to express it?

Never understood why people watch the Oscars. It's rigged to the point that the winners were only the best at gaming the system. Many movies are made to win Oscars, not be better entertainment. It's why you are often left amazed that something won.

Not to say the mentioned movie didn't deserve it, just that the Oscars isn't worth paying attention to. It's all a marketing gimmick now.

Edit: Looked it up: Thomas Vinterberg's 'Another Round' or 'Druk'
This comic got me curious, now I have to watch it. :)

The movie is called "Another Round"

edit The original Danish title is Druk, which is also the Danish word for "binge drinking".

thanks, ErictheRedandWhite

I'm going to be watching Når Dyrene Drømmer (When Animals Dream) this weekend. Pretty sure it's about a girl who becomes a werewolf, but I'll be watching for drunken middle aged men, haha.

Me:
Wait a minute... " A Man Called Ove" only had ONE old man, who wasn't a drunk teacher played by Mads Mikkelsen!

Also Me:
Oh wait... that wasn't Danish, it was Swedish. My bad. Still a good movie (and novel) though!
