After the Wedding (Susanne Bier – 2006) B+

Mads Mikkelsen plays Jacob, the manager of struggling orphanage in Kalkota. When a benefactor in Copenhagen offers him a lot of cash for his operation but he wants to meet him in person in Denmark first it of course seems to good to be true. Well, it is and it is not. Bier’s film is another one of those family drama where some buried secret is about to change the lives of all involved. It’s a well executed and smart film where there are no good or bad guys. It’s about people who over all seem to want to do what is right for their loved ones.
