A `Wedding' with a hitch

Review B

May 25, 2007|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Movie Critic

How far is too far, when it comes to protecting the people you love? What is reasonable, what is off-limits, and who's to decide the difference?

Susanne Bier's After the Wedding asks viewers to consider a host of issues, not the least of which may be: How much overwrought melodrama can they take? But the movie is filled with fine acting and piquant storytelling. Those willing to overlook its emotional grandstanding will find much to admire and even more to think about in this Oscar-nominated Danish drama.

After the Wedding (IFC Films) Starring Mads Mikkelson, Rolf Lassgard, Sidse Babett Knudsen. Directed by Susanne Bier. Rated R. Time 120 minutes.
