inside this week


I’M NOT SURE the internet is the best way to collect sponsorship money. I’m currently doing Movember, the charity that involves people growing moustaches over the month of November to raise the awareness of prostate cancer and other health issues that affect men, and am really struggling to find people who can donate online – ‘can’ being the operative word as some people are simply incapable of negotiating a pay site (see page 13 of the newspaper). I could take this personally, but I share the aversion to a degree, having on many occasions typed the worst kinds of swear words into password boxes and the like, daring to hoping that somebody actually reads them and registers the level of my frustration at not being able to transcribe Egyptian hieroglyphics or have an American ZIP code. It probably doesn’t help that most of the people I’m asking are English, and that the site

is in Danish. There’s something impersonal about going to a site. I prefer the pen and paper approach, and at least that way you can tell if someone’s paid. I’ve had at least ten vouches that I will never be able to check – it’s becoming positively un-nerving, but at least it’s made me forget about the ridiculous arachnid developing on my upper lip. The thing is that I want to win – by winning, I mean not collecting the least money at the newspaper. There’s a round of drinks riding on it – and while there will invariably be more rounds, nobody wants to buy the first. If this kind of schoolyard pissing contest non-plusses you, then you have my envy. Being competitive is more often a curse than an attribute. The last time I raised money for charity, I managed four times more than my nearest rival, but at what expense! I spent my entire fourweek holiday reading (20 paperbacks – see G3 for details about the Copenhagen Book Fair and how it this year more childfriendly than ever before), and I never did find out the name of the charity I was supporting. I learnt the words nerd and geek though.

Ooh er, have we found a successor to Frankie Howerd? Funnily enough (actually it wasn’t), he was in Carry On Up The Jungle

Crazy Christmas Cabaret presents Below the Equatorial Belt

Glassalen, Tivoli, Vesterbrogade, Cph V; starts Friday, ends 14 Jan; open Mon-Fri 19:30, Sat 15:00 & 19:30; tickets 95-370kr at &;, IT’S HILARIOUS, it’s hot, it’s nervewrecking, and with craziness running at an all-time high, it’s bound to be Vivienne McKee’s Crazy Christmas Cabaret. Once again, with an array of eccentrically uproarious characters, the show is back at Tivoli’s Glassalen from November 9 until January 14, filling the dark days and freezing evenings with tropical warmth. That’s right, this year McKee is taking her audience Below the Equatorial Belt to the steaming jungles of central Africa. Organised by the London Toast Theatre in Copenhagen, the show is once again set to entertain and tickle Danes and expats in equal measures.

Performance Fallen from Heaven

Dansehallerne, Pasteursvej 1424, 1799 Cph V; ends 20 Nov, performances Wed-Fri 20:00, Sat 17:00 & 20:00; tickets 105175kr,; Tim Rushton, the artistic director of Dansk Danseteater, has invited Portuguese choreographer André Mesquita to stage his new creation, •(dot), as part of a triple bill entitled Fallen from Heaven. Playing alongside Rushton’s “tongue-in-cheek jazz ballet” Love Songs and a new dance film, Mesquita’s abstract choreography is inspired by the lapidation of gemstones, multiculturalism, and Jacques Derrida’s text Monolingualism of the Other; or, The Prosthesis of Origin. FBP

For those unfamiliar with the antics of Vivienne McKee, she is the artistic director and co-founder of the London Toast Theatre, a theatre group based in Copenhagen that performs on stages in numerous European cities. Over the last 30 years, the company has put on a range of shows from distinguished English plays and musical cabarets to stand-up comedy shows and drama workshops. Their audiences have also been equally varied, and always heavy in number – an estimated 50,000 watch the Crazy Cabaret every year. The show has been running for a number of years, each Christmas adding more wackiness and eccentricity to the themes, characters and humour, from Sherlock Holmes and Hamlet (yes, together) to gangsters with guns. Last year’s theme was chilling, thrilling and saw the infamous Dr Bent van Helsingør given top billing. But this year, McKee and her troops have ditched the morbidity and adopted safari suits for their journey to the jungle. While last year the show had the

War Sum Up


Kongens Nytorv NE 9, Cph K; performances Fri & Sat 20:00; tickets: 95-495kr; War Sum Up has three life stories as its focal point: the warrior killed on the battlefield who becomes a ghost, the spy who’s captured in the war and becomes a superhero, and the soldier who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. All three characters must tell their life story for their souls to find peace. War Sum Up is inspired by Japanese culture and its powerful expression of poetry, pop, precision and brutality. The performance features newly composed music by Britain’s The Irrepressibles and the Latvian composer Santa Ratniece. Performed in Japanese with English subtitles. EM

audiences screaming: “Oh My Goth!”, this year the warning is “Hold on to your nuts, cos you’ll go bananas.” A safari hunter, an ape expert, a hideously rich financier and others search for a missing climatologist in the rainforests of the mysterious Lost City of Minj, encountering lethal mosquitoes, mischievous chimpanzees, man-eating plants and just about every creepy reptile possible. As in previous years, the shows make lots of humorous references to pop culture, literature and history, referencing many of the popular works that most of us have grown up with, like Tarzan and John Huston’s The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. It’s going to be a comic rumble in the jungle. So if you find yourself cold and bored over the coming winter months, perhaps a dose of the Crazy Christmas Cabaret is just what you need – but be quick, as the tickets are selling like hot cakes.

Kongens Nytorv 9, Cph K; starts Wed at 19:30, ends 13 Dec; tickets: 95-695kr; Based on the bestselling novel Livlægens besøg, the opera tells the true story of Johann Struensee, who as the physician and confidant of the mad King Christian VII exploits his position of power and creates havoc in the monarchy.

Organisers have decided to move the fair to Bella Center in 2012, which will provide much more space for the publishers and the audience, organiser Lotte Kirkeby Hansen told The Copenhagen Post. But this year, as always, the fair will host authors, readings and stories of all kinds aimed to inform or to take your imagination for a ride.

But for reasons not unrelated to its risqué nature and views on fidelity, many of its custodians have been compelled to bowdlerise it. This is about as delightful as opera buffa gets. KRG

Take care, take care, take care to not miss post-rock excellence Explosions in the Sky

Lille Vega Tuesday, 20:00; 250 kr


XPLOSIONS in the Sky’s band name has always served as the ironic antithesis to their sound. Much less jolting and abrupt than their name would suggest, the Texas-based instrumental band plays a brand of post-rock that thrives on subtlety and the gentle crescendo. On Tuesday, the Texans will be bringing their lush soundscapes to Vega. Currently touring in support of

their critically acclaimed sixth studio effort Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, Explosions in the Sky have been a workhorse when it comes to touring worldwide. Despite having already crisscrossed North America and Europe this year, this will only be the band’s second appearance in Denmark, the first coming back in 2008. They will be joined this time around by fellow instrumental post-rock outfit The Drift, from San Francisco. What can be expected when the two bands take the stage at Vega? A lack of microphones. This won’t be a show meant for the music fan that enjoys lyrical hyperanalysis. Explosions have always been a

band that has preferred to transmit its musical message via the traditional rock set up: drums, guitars and occasional bass. The career of the post-rock pioneers has been one defined by musical expansion. By tossing aside the benefits – and baggage – that comes with vocals, Explosions have taken the perceived confines of instrumental music and instead developed it into a style with limitless possibility. This intense concentration on the actual music – every chord and soft snare hit must have a purpose – has resulted in a unique brand of postrock that meanders while still remaining focused. The world has taken notice too. While other bands in the instrumen-

tal post-rock/metal scene like Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Pelican have cultivated a passionate yet underground fan base, they have largely flown under the mainstream radar for the vast majority of their careers. Explosions in the Sky, on the other hand, have developed a fan base that’s equal parts underground and mainstream. One needs to look no further than the band’s recent history. Take Care, Take Care, Take Care is the band’s highest charting album yet, ascending all the way to the #16 slot on the US charts. The band also provided the soundtrack for the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, as well as the television programme of the same name that followed it.

This break into the mainstream would usually result in a cult fan base feeling ostracised and alienated, but this is largely not the case with Explosions in the Sky. The band has walked the high wire act of musical progression, fan-base satisfaction and mainstream exposure with unparalleled grace. The band has grown from an obscure Texas band without vocals into a veteran postrock juggernaut. Their show is not to be missed; it will be a performance by a band with over ten years of post-rock excellence that is on the cusp of developing into its final form of legends. MATTHEW GRANT ANSON

The Horrors cake

Store vega; 20:00;330kr The Californian-based group made their breakthrough on America’s West Coast in the ‘90s with their catchy, humorous and jazz-flavoured hits. Dubbed as postmodern, genrebending tunes such as the eponymous ‘Short Skirt/Long Jacket’ and the irony-drenched ‘The Distance’ became anthems for a generation. Playful, free and unbelievably catchy, Cake continue to juggle the genres with a batch of fresh tunes from their sixth studio album, Showroom of Compassion (2011). This is a rare appearance in Denmark, so be sure to book up tickets in advance! (english) DvdN

Liszt Festival

The royal Danish Academy of music, Frederiksberg; starts mon, ends Nov 18, Concerts mon 19:30, Tue 17:00 & 19:30, Wed 19:30, Fri 16:30; free adm;


rom November 1418, the royal Danish Academy of music  is presenting the Liszt Festival, a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hungarian composer Franz Liszt. born in 1811, Franz Liszt was a prolific 19th century Hungarian  composer, pianist, conductor and teacher. He became renowned throughout europe for his virtuosic skill as a pianist, and he was said by his contemporaries to have been the most technically advanced pianist of his age and perhaps the greatest pianist of all time. He was also a wellknown composer, piano teacher and conductor who contributed significantly to the modern development of the art. Liszt and Copenhagen have a particularly special relationship. Liszt spent in total 13 days in the capital during a visit in 1841.

Loppen; 21:00;120kr emerging out of London’s famed indie-rock scene circa 2005, The Horrors have gone on to become the darlings of british rock. The London scenesters used to be all about their image and nothing much more than a fashionable rock group to plug into. Though the skinny black jeans and untamed hairstyles still remain intact, they have added something else to their music: an actual definitive sound. Their two most recent records reach deep into the group’s ‘80s influences and deliver a unique twist on modern alternative rock with a quarry of resonant songs. This opportunity to see the group at such an intimate venue is not to be passed by. (english) DvdN Thanks to some memorable performances, he found huge success with the audience as females threw flowers to him, a pastry was named after him, and the press wrote very highly of him. Liszt travelled with his own piano, which was especially crafted by the French firm erard to accommodate his powerful and grandiose style of play. To celebrate this musically gifted man, the royal Danish Academy of music will be holding a variety of concerts and shows. The opening show on monday will focus on the ‘virtuosic and young Liszt’, and include renditions of ‘Soirée de vienne No. 6’ by bingbing  Zhu, ‘Paganinietude  e flat major’ by Linda Dahl Laursen, and ‘La Chasse’ by elisabeth Holmegaard. on Tuesday music lovers will have the chance to enjoy not one but two shows. The first will focus on ‘Liszt and the song’. The one-hour programme includes performances of ‘Freundvoll und Leidvoll (Goethe)’ and ‘Sonnet 104 Pace non trovo (Petrarch)’. Also on Tuesday (from 19:30) is ‘Prophet Liszt’, which will focus on Liszt’s later piano

Teater Grob; 20:00; 170kr Formed back in 1995 by the Danish duo Katrine Stochholm and Henriette Sennenvaldt, their musical vision has evolved into a collective project that now involves a mini-orchestra consisting of no less than eight musicians. of a similar mould as björk, Under byen tinkers with the experimental, giving body to a jazzy, undulating and often eerie soundscape that is shaped by an eclectic array of electronic and traditional instruments, neatly captured in their latest (mostly instrumental) record Alt er Tabt (2010).

James Blake

Store vega; 20:00, 315kr This fresh-faced dub-step producer saunters off the beaten track, jigsawing together an eclectic blend of instrumentation to create weird and wonderful compositions. With traces of sombre dub-step, electro and Thom Yorke-esque elements, blake has been carved out something of a new sub-genre – as well as elevated the status of dub-step. blake was one of the few artists highlighted in bbC’s Sound of 2011. Although the idea of hearing blake on a monday night may run a little against the grain just remember that last time around, blake’s concert sold out in just a few weeks. (english) DvdN

Aloe Blacc

Store vega, 20:00; 245kr As we sink into another depressing winter time, vega is breaking up the monotony of grey skies and icy winds with another big name: Aloe blacc. originally from California, blacc is a modern American soul-singer who brings together traditional soul music and pop, soul, funk and hip-hop. His latest record, Good Things (2011) perfectly encapsulates blacc’s astounding interpretation of soul music, heralded by the hit opening number ‘I Need Dollar’. Funky, bold and soulful, his easy-listening melodies are smooth, listenable and tasteful – not to mention incredibly catchy. (english) DvdN

works. The show includes renditions of ‘La Cloche de Genève’ by markus Kvint, ‘bagatelle sans tonality’ by oscar micaelsson, and ‘mephisto  Polka’ by marie  Louise bode Dorff. on Wednesday the royal  Danish Academy of music is presenting a special ‘Hungarian Festival Concert’ to pay homage to Liszt. The evening will include performances of ‘rhapsody  No.  2’ by bogdan  Nicola, ‘Liebestraum  As-dur’ by Cecilia  Grønkjær  Tagmose, ‘valseImpromptu’ by Wes  Leffingwell, and ‘mephisto Waltzes No. 1’ by marie Louise bode Dorff.

Friday marks the end of this festival and for the final show the location will be the Trinity Church (Købmagergade 52A, 1119 Cop K), an apt location for ‘The religious Liszt’. During this show the royal Danish Academy of music Chamber Choir will sing works by Liszt  and  Sandstrom. They will be conducted by Fredrik malmberg. entrance to all the shows are free; however, there is limited seating so organisers advise patrons to arrive early. Any changes or cancellations  will be announced on the academy website. Jessica o’sullivan

Joan As Police Woman

Amager bio; 20:00; 250kr The American-born violinist and singer-songwriter, also known as Joan Wasser, has enjoyed a colourful musical career over the last 20 years. Her contribution to the record industry is largely derived from her experimental intertwining of soul and r ‘n’ b with alternative rock. Joan’s most recent material, drawn from her fourth studio-album The Deep Field (2011), is characteristically subdued: a slowevolving album that travels into the depths of Joan’s inspiration. resonant vocals, well-crafted lyrics and some intriguing melodies makes Joan’s difficult to dislike. (english) DvdN samples, minimalistic beats and heavy bass, perfectly tailored for the dancefloor. The supporting act is the pioneering technohouse duo from Copenhagen’s Tartelet records known simply as emil and Frederik. exemplary of Denmark’s evolving techno scene, tonight’s line-up will see hundreds of Copenhageners and visitors drawn to the venue come midnight. (english/Danish) Why Not: Point Blank rust; Wed 23:00; 60kr As part of rust’s ‘Why Not Wednesday?’ series, the nightclub welcomes the offspring of Aarhus’s emerging jazz-rap fusion group Point blank. Led by the smooth lead vocalist Louilou, the mini-orchestra - which includes a trumpeter, saxophone and pianist – create a dynamic crossover between jazz, hip-hop and rap. relaxed jazz paired with undulating rap lyrics dominates their eP Let The Minute Hand Slap You (2011), which includes their catchy single ‘Where Should We Go’ featuring Danish-Greenland starlet Naja.

How do you get to know the Danes? Through their kids and pigs Danish people are stylish and modern; not only do they care about children and their neighbours, but also about the environment. And like true Vikings, Danes love their food. You can experience all these things through four special cultural outings right here in Copenhagen. Environmental awareness Environmental awareness is important in this northern country. Danes are known for their windmills and environmentally-friendly designs. Many are also concerned about recycling waste. It starts at a young age and I can only imagine all school children in the area will be visiting SKRALD (TRASH) at the Museum of Copenhagen. The exhibition shows how Copenhageners have been concerned about waste management for many years, and how they are currently tackling one of the world’s biggest problems. Among the most thought-provoking pictures are ones of ‘rat collectors’ – young children working at the beginning of the 20th century who brought rats to the fire department in exchange for a few pennies – clearly at a time when fear of bacteria was nonexistent. Design Danes are renowned for their design and have been for a long time. The darling of the moment is Bjarke Ingels, an architect who was named the Wall

Children This city is especially child-friendly. There are playgrounds everywhere, and with Tivoli (the oldest amusement park in Europe) and the zoo, there are plenty of things to occupy the kids. One alternative to the aforementioned obvious choices is the Post & Tele Museum at Købmagergade 37 in the city centre. The pick of its exhibitions is the still running Inside the Stamp, where Kids get the opportunity to go exploring in the city’s largest stamp album where no reading is required. All you’ll find are lots of fun activities set amongst the artwork found on Danish stamps though enlarged to monster size. From giant boardgames to playing village postman, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained.

Pigs No, Danes are not pigs but they sure do love eating them. Whether it’s a hotdog from one of the street vendors, the crackling off some ‘flæskesteg’ or Danish salami, there always seems to be some pork involved in a traditional Danish meal. Start a discussion about food and you will soon learn the difference between organic and biodynamic products. Danish people love food, and experimental Nordic cuisine has earned a seat in the world of gastronomy. If you’re specifically looking for Danish cuisine, try the stylish and cosy Bastionen + Løven in Lille Mølle (a part of the National Museum) on Christianshavns Vold, and Restaurant Brede Spisehus, the former canteen and hall for the workers at Brede Works. While you’re there, you can experience the history of Danish industrial culture at Brede Work just next to the restaurant.

Lining them up at a bar where every cocktail delivers a punch worth paying for

cocktail maker of the year with his inventive ‘cucumber yum-yum’. On a gin base, raspberries, honey and aquavit are shaken not stirred to produce an agreeably unmarked and fun flavour. The freshness of the cucumber works well with the stiffness of the gin – a winning combo that took flight with the masses as cucumber became the trendiest new ingredient in 2009. Come 2011 and Rehal went on to win yet again with another wild infusion. ‘Snap fever’ is a cocktail made with gin, honey, lime juice and you guessed it – snap peas. This has a surprisingly strong pea flavour – not enough that it scares you, but enough that you comment on it, savour it, and are left wondering how something so odd could mix so well. Rehal is well aware it’s a fine balance. “When designing a cocktail it has to be out-of-the box, but if it’s too weird it’ll be rejected, so you have to keep the comfort factor in it,” he says. As well as the award winners, 1105 stocks a seasonal menu that changes every three months, a classic cocktail menu and

of course all your usual spirits, wines and beers – albeit the classiest brands. Each cocktail contains at least 60 millilitres of alcohol, but for 120 kroner a cocktail you’d expect nothing less. While the office crowd frequents 1105 on weekdays, Friday and Saturday night sees a slightly younger crowd as a live DJ plays along while you sip your quirky creations. You may even catch a glimpse of a celebrity – many of whom have made this place their local. So, as you sit at the bar sucking on a liquorice pipe that came on top of the cocktail Rehal has just served, the worries of your hard working day fade away. You realise that three-hour meeting was actually quite productive, you conclude your secretary has piled on a few pounds lately and probably wasn’t worth the effort, and that your client’s now unusable alibi will probably mean he lands in prison – which he deserves anyway. Ah, it’s wondrous what 1105 can do. EMILY MCLEAN

Blå records Blågårdsgade 2A, Cph N; open Mon-Fri 12:00–18:00, Sat 12:0016:00; prices from 10kr Backtrack a bit to this small underground basement shop. Blå (Blue) Records boasts a ‘hyggeligt’ atmosphere that doesn’t lack diversity in what it has to offer. For those perhaps looking for a unique gift or are record junkies themselves, they can find both new and used vinyl albums here, ranging from traditional music to electronic, blues, pop, rock and basically every other genre you can imagine. Despite the reasonable prices, the best part is actually that the small shop hosts record swaps every once in a while. (Look them up on Facebook for more details.)

PICTURE THIS: you’re a 30-something legal eagle, you’re working for Copenhagen’s biggest law firm, and you’ve just had one hell of a day. The meeting that was meant to last one hour lasted three, the secretary you’ve been trying to score for two months just got a new boyfriend, and your client’s decided his alibi isn’t quite as watertight as he thought. The end of the day finally comes … it’s 9pm. You need a drink. A stiff one. And you need it in a relaxed yet sophisticated bar. You need 1105. Proving hard to find for first-timers, this little gem knows its value and isn’t interested in bolshie advertising, or large signage. Word of mouth is enough for this place. A sign simply saying 1105 sits above a large black door and what lies behind it is something quite spectacular. Walking into this dimly lit, minimalistic cocktail bar reminds you of walking into some sort of laboratory. Three time award-winning bartender Hardeep Rehal stands behind the bar looking extremely ‘gammel-klog’ in his white laboratory coat, mixing, testing and tasting – the only sign that would lead you to believe he’s a bartender is his bowtie. As soon as you take a seat at the bar, you know that bad day in the office can only get better. Surrounded by fellow young professionals, blending into an international crowd, you know you’re in good company. Opening the menu it’s hard to believe these drinks weren’t concocted in a laboratory – you’d need to have a little mad scientist in you to mix snap peas, cucumber and liquorice pipes in cocktails. The experimental attitude of 1105 is paying off. In 2009 Rehal won Danish

CLOUDBERRY, lotus root, fromage blanc. Sometimes just hearing the name of a particular food is enough to convince me that I am going to like the way it tastes. And then there are dishes that do just the opposite. Things like oxtail, fried eels, and fried pig skin. In these instances, it’s important for me to put my negativeness aside and sometimes, as in the case of these three examples, the food often tastes a whole lot better than it actually sounds. So with Thanksgiving quickly approaching – this year it falls on Thursday November 24 – please allow me spread the word about a traditional dish that may sound disgusting to those not acquainted, but trust me, millions

of Americans cannot be mistaken: sweet potato and marshmellow casserole is absolutely delicious. Thanksgiving food often lacks innovativeness. With dishes like roast turkey and stuffing, and pumpkin pie, it’s a good thing that this casserole is an eye-catcher at the dinner table, due to the thick layer of golden brown and fluffy marshmallows that adorn it. Technically speaking, this casserole is so sweet, you could easily serve it as a dessert and few would raise an eyebrow. But doing so could be like ordering a plate of Ikea’s Swedish meatballs without getting the lingonberry sauce alongside it – it’d taste good and satiate your hunger, but something would just not be right.

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Copenhagen N; 3535 7535; fourcourse menu 450kr, sevencourse 775kr (with wine menu 1450kr); There are only two Thai restaurants in the whole world that have been awarded a Michelin star. One of them is in London, the other one is Kiin Kiin, which you will find in the heart of Nørrebro. And it is well deserved. Kiin Kiin isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience, a place where every little detail is thought through. PDR 1. th. Herluf Gade 9, Cph K; 3393 5770,; www.1th. dk; 1,250kr per person 1. th. is a gourmet restaurant with a twist. Tucked away behind a hard to-find-door on the first floor to the right of a typical Copenhagen apartment, the restaurant is based around the concept of the dinner party with guests stepping into what appears to be a private apartment and then being utterly spoilt by their hosts. The monthly set menu costs 1,250kr and has a whopping ten courses, and you can tell them in advance of any food quirks you might have and they will personalise the menu for you. Terrific food, friendly and attentive service and a unique setting. CS Reinwald’s Farvergade 15, 1463 Cph K; open Mon-Sat 14:00-24:00 (kitchen closes at 22:00); 3391 8289; www.reinwalds. dk; five-course menu with wine 850kr, other dishes 75215kr Serving lunch and dinner, a director’s-script length of choices confronts you at. It’s a who’s who of classic French and French-inspired Danish dishes as well as a monthly set menu. Any chef would be proud of this. SC

Cap Horn Nyhavn 21, Cph K; open Mon-Fri 10:00-00:00, Sat-Sun 09:00-00:00; 3312 8504; starters from 99kr, main courses from 139kr, desserts from 39kr; see for special events Nyhavn, the old harbour, is an idyllic area of magic and hygge what the Danes like to say when referring to anything that is cosy, charming, or delightful: all qualities Cap Horn has in abundance. Its simple menu boasts a fine selection of organic, homemade Danish fare, with a touch of seasonal influence. There were two highlights: the veal, pumpkin, mushrooms and potatoes with amazing truffle sauce (a ‘best ever veal experience) and the chocolate cake (‘Oh My God’), which was possibly the best chocolate cake ever! MM BioMio Halmtorvet 19, 1700 Cph V; open daily 12:00-24:00 (later Fri and Sat), kitchen open 12:00-22:00; 3331 2000; starters 75kr, mains 135kr; www. Located in an old warehouse next to trendy Kødbyen, Bio Mio is certainly unusual for conservative Copenhagen. It’s stylish without being pretentious, fast enough that you don’t go crazy waiting for food, and loud enough that you can make a racket without anyone raising an eyebrow. JH SushiTreat Fox Jarmers Plads 3, Cph V; open Mon-Thu 16:30-22:00, Fri-Sat 16:30-24:00 with Club Treat from 22:00-02:00; 3338 7030 The newly-opened restaurant SushiTreat at the Hotel Fox serves the best California-style sushi in the city, offers an impressive drinks and wine card, and has a completely unique atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights when you can order sushi until 2am while listening to some of the city’s best DJs .

NA Thai Flavours Vesterbrogade 30, Cph V; open Sun-Thu 12:00-23:00, Fri-Sat 12:00-23:30; Starters 60kr, mains 100kr; 3331 3170,; A worthy exponent of the Thai kitchen has opened recently in Vesterbro, just one block from the Planetarium and the lakes. The utterly unpretentious yet stylish Thai Flavours has a hospitable and authentic atmosphere and walls that let you breathe. KRG Saga Queen Havnegade 31, Cph K (near Nyhavn); sails twice Thu-Sat at 13:00 (lunch ) & 19:00 (dinner); reservations 4675 6460 &; www. The city’s only restaurant cruise ship, the Saga Queen offers a two-hour lunch cruise and a three-hour dinner cruise. Every table has a wonderful window view, and there’s a choice of set menus. Sometimes a meal can feel like an eternity, but here the time passed by quickly and pleasurably as we enjoyed a feast for both our eyes and our very satisfied stomachs.

mashed potato puree. Spoon the mixture into an oven-safe dish and sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Cover the entire surface of the potatoes with a single layer of marshmellows. Bake in oven until hot and bubbly, and marshmellows are golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve immediately. Did you know that sweet potatoes and yams are NOT one and the same? Many people erroneously interchange their names. The sweet potato is an edible root belonging to the morning glory family, and is native to tropical areas of the Americas. A yam is not a root, but a tropical-vine tuber, and is a popular ingredient in South and Central America, the West Indies and parts of Asia and Africa. In Copenhagen, sweet potatoes can be found at many ethnic greengrocers, as well as large supermarkets. The availability of yams is scarce in Denmark.

Saxo Cafe Colbjørnsensgade 11, 1652 Cph V; open 11:00-23:00; 3888 8288,; Chinese buffet 128kr pp, dim sum dishes from 35kr Saxo’s menu is an eclectic and comforting mix of cultures, incorporating Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese buffets, Dim Sum and Vietnamese menus, and traditional Danish fare. With such a wide choice, it’s a great place to go as a group who can’t agree on a choice of cuisine. On our visit our favourites were the Dum Sums - particularly the steamed pork dumplings that are perfectly fluffy. AK Gold Prag Gothersgade 39, 1123 Cph K; open Tue-Wed 17:00-23:30; Thu-Sat 17:00-24:00; SunMon closed; appetisers from 19Kr, mains from 89kr; 3391 4712, Gold Prag has a distinct Austrian, Hungarian, Czech and Polish heritage and lives in a time of its own. The main courses are substantial, honestly cooked and rich in taste and include Vienna schnitzel with baked new potatoes and coleslaw and chicken breast topped with apricots and cheese. There are also dumplings cooked in the Austrian way and delicious goulash among the many different servings to be had. All in all it is a rough and tumble sort of place that is elegantly primitive with charisma, heartiness and austerely excellent food that perfectly accompanies classic beers and wine. SC Restaurant Dalaman Vodroffsvej 15, Frederiksberg C; Open daily 16:0024:00; 3322 1231; three-course menus 119kr, 139kr & 159kr pp Turkish restaurant Dalaman puts an emphasis on good food and customer satisfaction.

Pubs The Irish Rover Strøget 46, 1161 Cph K; Open daily 10:00-late; www. You won’t find a more childfriendly pub in the whole city. From the fish and chip expat family nights at 17:00 on the last Friday of every month, to enjoying the Sunday roast (lamb, all the trimmings, just 99kr, kids portion for 58kr), they are always welcome. There’s live music Thursday-Sunday (22:00-late), the kitchen is open from 10:00 until late every day - serving a burger meal with pint for just 120kr - the pub caters to all sports fans, there’s a pool table in their back room where you can smoke, and upstairs there’s a new lounge area, which is the perfect place to relax with a view over Strøget. BH Brew Pub Vestergade 29, 1456 Cph K; restaurant open MonSat 12:00-22:00, pub open Mon-Thu 12:00-24:00, FriSat 12:00-02:00, Sun closed; 3332 0060;; three-course lunch menu 155kr The menu is full of hearty, homely, yet inventive dishes featuring inspired use of the same wonderful ingredients that go into the brewing process. Each dish can be easily matched by one of Brew Pub’s own concoctions from the casks across the courtyard. AK Kennedy’s Irish Bar Gammel Kongevej 23, 1610 Cph V; Open Mon-Sun 12:0002:00 It’s not an Irish pub. Instead it’s a pub owned by Irishmen, and there’s a big difference. It’s an authentic taste of what the Emerald Isle was like in the 1980s in a pub totally devoid of concepts, themes, and DIY Irish pub kits. Drop by at 17:00 on Fridays for the traditional Irish music sessions which are rapidly gaining in popularity. BH

Southern Cross Løngangstræde 37, Cph K; open Sun-Thu 15:00-03:00, Sat-Sun 12:00-05:00; 3311 0939 This Aussie boozer is a mecca for expats and Danes, old and young, that has a lively darts board, a fortnightly quiz, a good sports-viewing atmosphere, and a happy hour that lasts to 8pm during which you can beers for just 30kr. JHW The Dubliner Amagertorv 5, Strøget, 1160 Cph K; Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 10:00-late This pub is never quiet. It’s the perfect place for sports fans to mingle, or for live music which it provides every day. It also serves food all day from 10am to 10pm, and diners can find peace from the music and sport on a table overlooking the walking street, or on the first floor balcony overlooking Amagertorv. BH The Globe Nørregade 43-45, 1165 Cph K; Opening hours vary, until 03:00 Fri-Sat Friendly service and good value food make this the perfect city pub, and it’s difficult to know where to enjoy your pint given the number of options. If it’s company you want, you might try the main bar, or a private function, the second bar; seating-wise pull up a high chair, relax on cushioned benches or lord it as a bishop for the evening; or go genteel in the library - a great place to cheat in the fortnightly quiz, the longest running in the city. BH The Old English Pub Vesterbrogade 2B, 1620 Cph V; Open Sun-Thu 11:30-02:30, Fri-Sat 11:30-04:30; 3332 1921; This Victorian style English pub has all the class and authenticity of a Cotswolds country pub not a Costa del Sol flea trap. Facing Tivoli’s arches and just a stone’s throw from Strøget, it’s the ideal pit-stop on a tour of the city centre LB

forgive the homage to Bananarama, but it’s not often you get a chance to mention them, let alone quote their lyrics

next up, the Fish tikka masala was a dish, with its large glistening chunks of white fish, that had already won me over with its beautiful appearance. The word ‘masala’ means a mixture of spices, and in this case, the spices were as delicate as the fish. lastly, we were served kofta spinach. Venus’s kofta are made from clementine-size meatballs of ground beef and spices. The meatballs are covered in a thick spinachbased sauce, and were delightfully tasty, especially when eaten with a dab of the tangy yoghurt sauces. Pacing myself was difficult, and my


A quick glAnce from the street, and Venus Pizzeria could easily resemble every other pizza joint in town. But come a little closer and you’ll notice the group of indian men hanging out by the service counter, get a waft of the scents emerging through the kitchen door, and see the array of delectable South Asian snacks in the display case. You’re bound to discover that Venus Pizzeria is anything but just another pizza place. The beauty of it is that Venus does more than pizza. Yes, they also make burger and shawarma, but that’s not what’s important here. quite simply, Venus Pizzeria makes some of the best Pakistani and indian food in the city, and the fact that it’s been a popular establishment for over 11 years is only proof of its sustainability. While the majority of customers order takeout food at the counter, for guests who prefer to enjoy the food directly from the kitchen, there is an adjoining 50-seat dining room. Simple in décor, the pale walls are brought to life by the colourful paintings hanging on the walls. White tablecloths, small candles and decorative napkins on each table help to keep the ‘grill bar’ atmosphere one might expect. Despite being a customer for many years, its menu is so enormous (almost 200 items), i still haven’t managed to eat through them all. On my most recent visit, i asked the restaurant’s owner Fareed Maomoud to order for us, hoping we’d be able to taste some of his personal favourites from the Punjabi area of eastern Pakistan and northwest india. To start with, we were served two appetisers: papadum (the spelling varies the world over, just like the accompaniments) and vegetarian pakora, which are deep-fried fritters of mixed vegetables. Two yoghurt-based sauces – one minty, one spicy – were set out for dipping. Both items were crispy and delicious, and frankly only made us more eager to taste the food that was to come. Maomoud didn’t want us to miss out on anything judging from the four oversized bowls of vibrant food that were soon set out in front of us. As a general note, main course portion sizes are large, with more than enough food for one person, and almost enough for two. Two of the four main course dishes were made with chicken: chicken dal – which consists of tender chunks of chicken simmered in a lentil, curry sauce, and then an old family favourite – butter chicken, made with white chicken meat, tomatoes, heavy cream and almonds. The chicken dal was light and fresh, in contrast to the heavier and more filling butter chicken.

serving spoon hopped from one dish to another like a ball in a pinball machine, until finally, i could eat no more. Or could i? Having never tasted Venus’s desserts before, i ordered the kheer, a rice porridge prepared using milk, rice, spices and sugar. The chilled bowl of kheer was served and, after just one bite of this cardamom-scented cream, rounded off a wonderful meal with a sweet and sultry note. Dining at Venus pizzeria is something i highly recommend. The service is always tentative and smiling, and although the restaurant does not have an alcohol license, one

can order mango juice or a yoghurt-based fruit lassi as a substitute. Venus Pizzeria’s owner Fareed Maomoud told me that his customers come from many different ethnic groups. Many of his customers live nearby; however, others travel long distances to come and taste his authentic food. lucky for me, i’m one of those who lives close by, and needless to say, this will not be the last time i enjoy Venus’s genuine and delicious South Asian food.

G18 Jane threadbare: no tension and only one dimension FILM


11 - 17 November 2011


Jane Eyre (11) Dir: Cary Joji Fukunaga; UK/US romance, 120 mins; Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Judi Dench

Premiered November 10


HE NOVEL Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is an incredibly popular book worldwide. It has been adapted from novel to film no less than 18 times. To say that the story is a classic may actually be an understatement. The story is a romance with gothic elements set in 19th century Britain, which criticises the hypocrisy of Victorian social interaction. And ironically, this adaptation applies a certain Victorian restraint and sensibility in its retelling of the story. Supposedly, one of the achievements of this film is its new structure and ability to fit in most of the story from the original novel. This version has achieved what it set out to do in that it covers most of the book. Truth be told, this film is well made. But it is not good. It is well executed in terms of everything cinematic. The cast was well chosen, the visuals are very 19th century thanks to the use of impressive natural lighting, and the story is a classic. What could go wrong? And yet, that’s all it is. It looks good on paper, but somehow doesn’t deliver. The people who made this film played it safe. They rounded off all of the edges, which had made the story interesting, and fit it into a neat little box for your pleasure. And it simply screams Oscar bait. The film begins with Jane Eyre

Period drama: big dress - check; huge country house - check; boring pastime cos no TV yet - check (Wasikowska) having run away from her position as governess at Thor Field Hall. It’s pouring rain and she’s miserable. She begs for someone to take pity on her. Soon she is found and taken in by minister St John Rivers (Bell) at Moor House. And thus the story of her life up until this point is told in flashbacks, beginning with Jane as an orphaned child living with her aunt. Jane gets kicked out of her aunt’s house and sent to live at a cold and merciless school, where the students are told not to befriend her. It’s a tough life for Jane, but she’s a tough

woman so she can take it. Usually child actors are, quite frankly, not that good. But the actress chosen to play Jane as a child was a great pick. This was one of the major highlights of the film as she was perfectly intense and dreary. As an adult, Jane takes a job as a governess at Thor Field Hall. Strange things are afoot in this house, strange and scary things. Regardless, somehow Jane manages to find love. If you’re familiar with the story of the book, the film is disappointing. It seems like the skeleton of the

story without some of the harsher details. In the novel, the headmaster is revealed to be a hypocrite. He teaches the students poverty, yet lives a life of wealth and takes money from the school for himself. This social criticism on the hypocrisy of Victorianism is removed from the film, taking out meaning from the original story and creating a less harsh environment. Mr Rochester (Fassbender), Jane’s love interest, is presented as a much nicer person, presumably because the audience should like him. The film touches and dances around the edge

Welcome return for comic genius Murphy Tower Heist (7) Dir: Brett Ratner; US comedy, 2011, 99 mins; Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Eddie Murphy, Tea Leoni, Michael Pena, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe

Premiered November 10 Playing nationwide


OW LONG has it been since you have said: ‘Wow, Eddie Murphy is one funny son-of-a-punk-assbitch’? Aside from his many turns as Donkey (yes, I know we hear his voice but that really isn’t the same), you prob-

ably have to go back at least 10 years, maybe even 20. Well, after seeing Tower Heist, you can once again safely say that he is one funny son-of-a-punkass-bitch. Brett Ratner’s newest incarnation of Rush Hour has Ben Stiller playing Josh Kovacs, the building manager of The Tower, Trump Tower in reality. When the Tower’s wealthiest resident, Arthur Shaw (Alda) is arrested by the FBI for fraud and loses the Tower’s employee pension fund, the seeds of retribution are sown. When Josh hears that the FBI believes Shaw has hidden at least $20 mil in his digs, the jig is up. Kovacs’ old neighbour Slide (Murphy) is recruited to turn

him, the concierge (Affleck), a former resident (Broderick), the Jamaican maid (Sidibe) and the elevator guy (Peña), into a capable criminal team just like Danny Ocean’s 11, or 12, or 13… Unfortunately, the script and the actual heist cannot keep up with the excellent groundwork laid by the actors and their characters, leaving us a little disappointed as the best comedy comes from the interaction of the characters. Alan Alda shines as the Bernie Madoff (who defrauded investors of millions in the US) inspired Wall Street villain. He has a way of being both polite and insulting within the same sentence. And of course

of issues of social injustice, but never actually delves that deeply into these issues. Because of this lack of important detail, the film not only lacks meaning, but also really drags. I kept waiting and waiting for the next scene to arrive. The original novel is a thriller and even the trailer promised suspense and tension. It delivered very little of either. On a few occasions it built up suspense, but the pay-off was disappointing. Even the climax of the film is a let down. Sadly, this film is just another beautiful bore.

Murphy reminds us that he still has the chops to make us laugh when given the right film and character to play. He is the main reason why this film will make you laugh, although Sidibe (of Precious) will also surprise you with her comedic talents. Yes, Tower Heist is classic Hollywood shtick, but the thing is still pretty damn funny, even if it does start a little slow. So what if it’s sheer petty escapist enjoyment. Tower Heist is a fun and funny film, and Eddie is back! Nuff said.

Book Your Tickets The Adventures’ of Tintin 3D (7) Dir: Steven Spielberg; US action, 2011, 107mins; Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis From the opening credits to the very end, this film is a playful contradiction of old and new. Whilst the film very much stays true to the mythical and timeless world that Tintin author Hergé so masterfully created, the introduction of slick film techniques and 3D wizardry make it a modern story for a modern audience. The tale begins with fearless young reporter Tintin and his ever loyal companion Snowy discovering an explosive and deadly secret, concealed within a centuries-old model ship. As the story progresses the loveable two are drawn into an old mystery whilst battling with a scrupulous gangster. Directed by the infamous Steven Spielberg and produced by the super clever Sir Peter Jackson the film is actionpacked, visually dazzling, and fantastically fun. JS

Drive (15) Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn; 2011; 95 mins; Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan Make sure you’re in your seats early for this one or else you’ll miss one of the most brilliant opening scenes in a movie ... ever. Refn manages to build extraordinary tension before igniting brief outbursts of violence. Sheer brilliance! KE

One Day (7) Dir: Lone Scherfig; UK/US drama, 2011,107 min; Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess, Patricia Clarkson Everyone could probably point to a past event of which the consequences have literally dictated who and where they are today. ‘One Day’ is a meditation on this theme with a bit more in the mix. The nicely interwoven themes, and the generally believable acting have the film living up to its own ambitious intentions, delivering an emotional punch in the gut. KG

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II (11) Dir: David Yates; 2011, 130 mins; Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint The Harry Potter finale ended an era last July. Cinematic magic follows our heroic threesome, and with a litany of impossible foes and an action-packed battle sequence finale, it’s one of the better HP films. SS

Avoid like the Plague Abduction (11) Dir: John Singleton; US action, 2011, 106 mins; Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Michael Nyquist, Abduction is a fast and furious ride in which violent things will happen whether the plot has prepared for them or not. Realism and filmic integrity are sacrificed for the obligatory and predictable Hollywood-isms. The

story runs that one night while working on a school project with a cute girl, Nathan (Lautner) discovers his baby picture on a missing children’s website. One ill-advised phone call later and he finds himself in a sinister web of corruption and hitmen. So who is it for? The formula of having a grim subtext frequently eclipsed by scenes of animal magnetism may be suitable for couples out on a date but we need to call a spade a spade - Abduction is frenzied, flashy and, not surprisingly, pretty shallow. KG

Crazy, Stupid, Love (7) Dir: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa; 2011; 118 mins; Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling Carell re-enacts his 40-Year-Old Virgin character in this fluffy, finely manicured romcom. He and Gosling make an appealing buddy couple, with Gosling alluring as a lithe and ruthless tomcat. Pleasure can be had watching this; however the slapstick finale feels hopelessly banal. AS

I Don’t Know How She Does It (15) Dir: Douglas McGrath; US comedy, 2011, 89 mins; Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, Christina Hendricks Sarah Jessica Parker is a hotshot investment banker/wannabe super mum in this new dramedy that brings nothing new to the genre other than to say that trying to be a man is a waste of a woman. The film follows Kate (Parker), who runs around with more ferver than a tasmanian

devil, as she tries to balance her home life with her architect husband Richard (Kinnear) and their two kids with her work life. Although to be honest, perhaps if they had just sat down and talked about the situation they could have worked it out and saved 30 minutes of film. A mediocre film at best, save yourself a ticket and rent the DVD – but only if you’re really desperate. KE

Johnny English Reborn Dir: Oliver Parker; UK com, 2011, 101 mins; Rowan Atkinson, Gillian Anderson, Dominic West Not knowing whether to take itself seriously or be goofball Bean funny, Johnny English Reborn hovers in the dreaded middle ground of comic purgatory. Bottom line: It has some LOL moments and fans of Atkinson will still probably love this movie, though there is less Mr Bean and more Blackadder this time around. KE

What’s your number? Dir: Mark Mylod; US Comedy, 2011, 106 mins; Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Ari Graynor What’s Your Number feels more like an underdeveloped sitcom pilot than a hit romcom. While Faris delivers good comic timing her character should have been less hysterical and more real. The film takes forever to get underway and when it finally does, you find yourself looking for something to distract you while waiting for the inevitable conclusion. EM


Paranormal Activity 3

Friends with Benefits (3)

Dir: Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman; US horror, 2011, 84 mins, Katie Featherston Just like with Paranormal Activity 2, the film has skipped the press screenings and saved the premiere for the people who count – the airheads who’ll watch any sequel because it’s a safe bet.

Dir: Will Gluck; 2011; 109 mins; Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Woody Harrelson, Richard Jenkins The film is fast and funny, but ultimately predictable. Your enjoyment of it may well come down to how much you love or hate Justin Timberlake! VS

Also Playing Contagion Dir: Stephen Soderbergh; US thriller/drama 2011, 118mins; Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Jude Law Beth (Paltrow) is the promiscuous wife of Mitch (Damon) who, on returning home to Minneapolis from a business trip in Hong Kong, unwittingly carries a fast mutating flu virus into her home. A secret overnight layover in Chicago ensures the disease has a headstart on those trying to contain it and before long the world is in the grip of panic. Contagion is rather like the miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand - in that there’s a long list of well known faces; the end is nigh; and some sort of uber-flu is to blame. The film also functions more like a bird’s eye view - rather than an intimate human account - leaving the audience uninvolved and distinctly uninfected. MW

The Three Musketeers 3D (11) Dir: Paul WS Anderson; UK adventure, 2011, 102 mins; Logan Lerman, Matthew MacFadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans When you have the director behind the Resident Evil pictures, with money to burn and a desire to do 3D, attempting to rework a classic piece of literature, what could possibly go wrong? A lot. Lerman, MacFadyen and Stevensen show good chemistry as war buddies but don’t get the screen time to really show it. This incarnation of The Three Musketeers is doomed to the same fate as the 2010 Robin Hood remake – they just don’t offer enough to jump start their ‘hidden’ franchaise hopes. KE

Midnight in Paris (3) Dir: Woody Allen; UK/ France com, 2011, 94 mins; Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams Premiered August 11 Despite the promising trailer, a sinking disappointment accompanies the realisation that this is going to be one of Woody’s daffier works. MW

Derren Brown BBC Entertainment, Fri 22:00 & Sun 21:00

PEOPLE moan about the quality on Danish X Factor, but if anyone’s to blame, it’s the judges. I watched the US version (DR HD, Sat 20:45) the other day and it finally dawned on me: they’re supposed to be helping the singers! In just 13 performances I saw more invention than in four series of the Danish one. Still, they’ll have to go some to rival Derren Brown as a mentor. His Hero at 30,000 Feet (Fri 22:00), which I watched on Sunday, was compelling. I was bemused, amused and moved as he took us through the full range of the human condition in an hour, showing how with the right guidance anyone is capable of brilliance – in this case overcoming a fear of flying to land a plane. Brown’s In The System (Sun 21:00) looks at the world of gam-

bling, and don’t miss the episode later in the month in which he plays Russian roulette live on television. Staying in Britain, two BBC drama series making their debuts are The Shadow Line and Paradox (SV1, Sun 22:15). The former, which charts the dual investigation of a murder by the police and the criminal underworld, is a safe bet if you like the formulaic. Starring the always dependable Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christopher Eccleston and Stephen Rea, the reviews improved as the series progressed. However, Paradox, starring the ever alluring Tamzin Outhwaite, is a risk probably not worth taking. It’s a bit like Minority Report, but the cops looking into the future are operating in 2009 Manchester not 2054 Washington DC – it just doesn’t really work.

Elsewhere, David Dimbleby’s Seven Ages of Britain (DR K, Thu 18:55 & Mon 20:00) takes us through the last 2,000 years of the island’s history; there’s a new series of An Idiot Abroad (SV1, Sun 21:30); there’s another chance to see the Jimmy McGovern-penned Accused (SV1, Wed 23:25); The media have no morals (BBC World, Sat 09:10 BBC Entertainment, Fri 22:00 & Sun 21:00 Derren Brown & 22:10, Sun 15:10) looks set to be a lively debate in Sydney, the Dirty Digger’s backyard; The Arctic Convoys (BBC World, Fri 21:30 & Sat 11:30) reveals how British supplies kept Russia going through World War Two; and Israel: Water Scarcity (BBC World, Sat 15:30 & Sun 21:30) looks at the breakthroughs in water technology Israel has made turning desert into arable land.
