  • Danish director Susanne Bier continues her tradition of finely crafted emotional films with this Oscar-nominated drama. In AFTER THE WEDDING, a businessman (Rolf Lassgard) offers to make a huge donation to an Indian orphanage. Unfortunately he makes some unreasonable demands on the owner of the orphanage (CASINO ROYALE's Mads Mikkelsen), including a bizarre request to return to his native Denmark to participate in a wedding. Once he arrives, he realizes that he is caught in the middle of an event that is far more than it appears. Biers's film was so highly praised that it led to her making her English-language film debut, the Halle Berry film THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Never short on pace and drama, director Susanne Bier's film tackles some hefty issues: actions and their consequences, responsibility, loss, sacrifice and redemption."
    Sight and Sound

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Extreme facial close-ups heighten the sense of intimacy and there's powerful playing from the ensemble cast."
    Total Film

    "Bier and Jensen whisk us away in an unexpectedly thought-provoking direction....[With a] powerfully understated denouement."
    Film Comment

    "[A] modern creation with a classic theme involving haves and have-nots, bloodlines and family ties."
    New York Times

    "[T]alented filmmaker Susanne Bier, armed with an outstanding compositional sense, keeps control over the storms of melodrama..." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Bier has made an old-fashioned melodrama, with the kind of skill and humanity that deserve to be back in style." -- Grade: A
