Four middle-aged friends, all of them teachers, are caught in somewhat of a rut. With no real passion or enthusiasm left neither in their work nor personal life, they turn to a psychologist’s theory that humans are essentially born with an alcohol shortfall that stops us from experiencing a certain level of freedom. Sold on the promise of easier, more inspired days, the gang decides to test it out and soon wonders what might happen should they take things that much further. This intoxicating tragicomedy from Thomas Vinterberg features exceptional performances from its cast, including a moving and memorable performance from Mads Mikkelsen.
