Review
Jacob Peterson is devoted to the small Indian orphanage that he runs, but cash flow problems force him to return to Denmark where, despite his bullish nature, he receives a very generous funding offer from a wealthy businessman. Frustratingly for Jacob the money has stipulations, one of which is to attend a wedding, an event which propels him back into a past he thought long forgotten. 'After The Wedding' is a stunning drama that builds and maintains more tension than most thrillers; characters shift and change as more of their former deeds and motives are revealed, sympathies see-saw as the corporate are revealed as compassionate, and the saintly selfish. Directed with passion and delicacy, Bier's film is driven by a series of hypnotic performances and more than deserved its Oscar nomination.
