Alan Mattli’s review published on Letterboxd:
Vinterberg offers a pretty convincing breakdown of what a midlife crisis is, particularly from a male perspective: as a way of rebelling against aging, you try to recapture the reckless abandon of your teenage years – and you delude yourself into thinking that, because of your age, you're hardier and smarter than you used to be, so obviously there's no way anything could go wrong. [checks notes] What do you mean, middle-aged white men are the most powerful demographic?
Good movie! I feel it glosses over at least two of the central characters, but I guess sacrificing some emotional detail is an acceptable price to pay for such dynamic storytelling.
Mads Mikkelsen should dance more.
