Captain Couth's review of El Norte yesterday sent me back to reflecting on  After the Wedding, a Danish film directed by Suzanne Bier that was a finalist for an Oscar for best foreign-language film in 2007.  The story concerns a Danish do-gooder who is spending his life in India, running an orphanage, but who is lured back to Denmark in order to lobby for funding from a Danish industrialist. He finds himself plunged into another world when the industrialist--seemingly on the spur of the …

It would be a shame to spill the story of this movie! Other reviewers have callously done so; don't read them! The artistic triumph of After The Wedding is the slow revelation of plausibility and motivation where at first there seems to be only implausible coincidence and random behavior.    It's a sad movie with scenes of genuine love.

Pros: Decent story, decent acting      Cons: Pacing is way off and a major subplot is essentially thrown aside      The Bottom Line: I've seen better and worse. This is in the huge pile of mediocre.

Alas.      …

`After the Wedding,' Denmark's "Best Foreign Picture" nominee for the Academy Awards has a lot going for it. Even if there is a soap opera feel to the scenes and the story, the quality is head and shoulders above any serial. Not to mention the fact we get six months of development in one movie. Solid performances, and camera shots that capture every revealing reaction give the story a magnetic interest.    The film begins in India where Jacob Pedersen (Mads Mikkelson) works with …
