With the first chords of What a life, the great song of Scarlet Pleasure that you can’t get out of your head, it has risen Thomas Vinterberg to collect the Oscar for Best International Film for Another round that I tended to him Laura Dern (Best supporting actress in the previous edition by Story of a marriage). Another round revolves around “Four depraved men who drive young people to drink”, as the director himself has described, and reached the Oscars with two nominations. He has already triumphed in one of them above Better Days, Collective, The Man Who Sold His Skin Y Quo Vadis, Aida?
The Danish filmmaker thanked his entire team for the award, but placed special emphasis on Mads Mikkelsen, an actor who has provided an automatically iconic performance in this film. Vinterberg has been humorous throughout the first bars of his speech, ensuring that Another round aims to “Celebrate life”, but the tone has changed drastically when he has mentioned what happened with his daughter. At this point her voice has failed, remembering how at the beginning of the filming of the film Ida died in a car accident, changing her conception of the project from top to bottom. As stated by the filmmaker, Another round it is “A monument to Ida”.
“You are part of this miracle”, has already added without being able to hide the emotion. Before succeeding at the Oscars, the Danish director established himself with long-distance films such as Celebration O The hunt, being Another round one of his most personal films.
