Christian is a Copenhagen wine seller on the brink of bankruptcy. Equally unsuccessful in just about every other aspect of life, it has been 17months since his wife Anna left him. Anna works as a soccer agent in Buenos Aires and now lives a life of luxury with Argentina's top player Juan Diaz. Then one day Christian and their 16-year-old son Oscar get on a plane to Buenos Aires. Christian arrives under the pretense of wanting to sign the divorce papers, but in truth, he wants to try to win Anna back.
Very good Danish film about Christian, who goes to Buenos Aires with his son Oscar, after his wife has sent him divorce papers to sign. He decides he wants to try and win her back. Aside from being a great film, it also made me quite interested in going there someday.
Ole Christian Madsen is another guy from Denmark. But instead of a black-humor-compared-with-sadness/violence tragic, like we often recognize and witness films from the Scandinavian country, he tries to build a comedy. And it's not a weak movie, especially the very nice and warm pictures of Buenos Aires, the wine bar with the choleric, idealistic viniculturist, the obligatory football match plus the two curious and strange adolescents at the seaside of the Rio de la Plata or the home of her family. Madsen teases you so that you wanna discover the warmth of the Argentinian capital by your own, but also he uses quite a bunch of chlichés (sexuality, wine, robbery, tango and, of course, superclásico football). In my opinion, this…
hilarious Danish novelty, filmed in Argentina, with plenty of Malbec, unexpected encounters and football. And serious tango, even in the bath tub...
Estúpidamente retitulada "Noche de vino y copas". Realmente es un clásico, pero el cruce de lo danés y lo argentino, el tono por momentos patético, a ratos reflexivo, me ha hecho pasar un buen rato.
March Around The World 2015 Challenge film #27.
an upgraded broken family scenario; a film that is very easy on the eyes with the right kind of tilts and conflicts that surges with festive humor and entertainment.
it maintains the the happy mood even with its supposed downtime. much more, that it does not go drama-mode and instead, finds a better way of telling it, making the viewer relaxed in return.
a good blend of chaos' transition to order.
Buenos Aires looks like a really cozy city...
Δανός 40ρης πηγαίνει με τον υιό του στο Μπουένος 'Αιρες να ξανακερδίσει την εν διαστάσει γυναίκα του, η οποία ζει πλέον εκεί με γκόμενο τον αστέρα γκολτζή της Μπόκα Τζούνιορς. Γλυκόπικρη κομεντί χωρίς μεγάλες απαιτήσεις.Απλά συμπαθές.Η δανέζικη πρόταση για το ξενόγλωσσο όσκαρ εκείνης της χρονιάς έφτασε στην προεπιλογή των 9,αλλά δεν μπήκε στην τελική πεντάδα.Δίκαια.(Για την ιστορία το ξενόγλωσσο όσκαρ εκείνη τη χρονιά το κέρδισε το ιρανικό Ένας χωρισμός-ταινιάρα από τις λίγες).Έχει πάντως γυρίσματα γηπέδου σε ντέρμπι Μπόκα Τζούνιορς-Ρίβερ Πλέιτ και άφθονο κρασί.
Very decent Danish comedy by Ole Christian Madsen. I'm not a fan of Paprika Steen in this, but I loved the general vibe of the film, and Anders W. Berthelsen was spot on.
Damn, now I really want to go to Buenos Aires.
The film is reminiscent of Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona with its picturesque tale of how a whiff of foreign air can intoxicate a traveller and make him or her do all sorts of crazy things. (The film’s amusing narration is equally likely to remind viewers of Allen’s trip to Spain.) Like a good Allen pic, though, Superclásico is a funny affair of flawed, neurotic people breaking out of their shells when prompted by the thrill of escapism and fantasy afforded by travel. It’s a humorous and dramatic adventure alike, as Superclásico demands its characters to be grounded even as they take find themselves in foreign land.
Amusing Danish movie. A man goes to Buenos Aires, together with his son, to go after his wife who has left him and now lives with a famous soccer player. If this would have been a Hollywood production the film would have been totally different but this one is worthwhile watching.
Pay extra close attention to the "Thank You" section during the credits of this movie :-P
