Trivia

Thomas Vinterberg wrote the part of Emma specifically for Helene Reingaard Neumann, his wife in real life. Emma is a mirror version of Anna (played by Trine Dyrholm. Vinterberg and Neumann began a relationship on the set of When a Man Comes Home (2007), when Vinterberg was married to Maria Walbom. Vinterberg told in interview with The Globe and Mail in May 2017 that he had to be fair to the women of this film, he had to be sharing with them and deliver the ugly sides of being a man.

Seventies Based Danish Drama that is rather good.
29 October 2016 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A middle class Danish couple find that they have inherited a rather grand house on the death of Erik's father. It is going to be too big for them and their only daughter and more over too hard to finance and so Anna suggests they invite a few others to live with them and for a 'Kollektivet' or as we would call it a commune.

They waste little to no time in getting an assorted array of waifs and not so strays and soon fine that communal living bring challenges and opportunities in equal measure. Not all of them are going to be easy to grasp and the tensions, that go hand in hand with any social experiment, waste no time in pushing their way to the fore.

Now I really liked this, I loved the idea of a commune having spent time in one in the eighties (when they were a bit passé to be honest) and the themes are explored here but also the lives of the main characters are mostly to the fore. This is Anna played brilliantly by Trine Dryholm – 'The Legacy' and her husband Erik (Ulrich Thomsen – 'The Blacklist') and their young daughter who is growing up much too quickly. His is from director Thomas Vinterberg who brought us 'The Hunt' in 2012 and 'The Celebration' in 1998 and I think he has an eye for style but sometimes struggles to engage, but here I think he has melded all parts of the art very well together to bring a very entertaining watch – recommended.
