Movie Summary

Director:
Susanne Bier
Released:
2007
Rating:
R
Jacob (Mads Mikkelsen) works at a Bombay orphanage in dire financial straits. After two decades, he returns to his native Denmark to pursue a potential donation from Jorgen (Rolf Lassgard), a wealthy entrepreneur. In Copenhagen, Jacob is invited to the wedding of Jorgen's favorite daughter; at the ceremony, Jacob unwittingly walks headlong into his past. Susanne Bier and Anders Thomas Jensen developed the story as a natural extension of their previous collaborations: the acclaimed OPEN HEARTS and BROTHERS. '"Rich, intricate and very gripping. A kind of treat we are only rarely offered these days." - Schickel, Time "Bier's epic. Enough twist and turns to fill four weepies. She invests energy and genuine invention in almost every shot...Mads Mikkelsen...here displays the self-conscious jitter of the young Pacino." - Nelson, Voice "Compelling...Serves it up straight, no chaser and dares anyone to flinch. Couldn't be more illuminating or more dramatic." - Turan, LA Times

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    After the Wedding would never pretend to have any answers, but in hands this skilled the act of exploration itself couldn't be more illuminating, or more dramatic.

    Variety

    Thanks to a tight script, sharp direction and excellent actors, new film by Danish helmer Susanne Bier manages to be both emotional and engaging.

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    A fine and, on a scene-by-scene basis, often better than fine, if effectively unadventurous work.
