inside this week
THIS AUTUMN has peaked. It’s all downhill from here on in. All pursuits from now until March are strictly indoors, providing you don’t include chopping down your own Christmas tree (see G8 for details). Because while the Swedes and the Norwegians take to the mountains with a rifle, the Danes like to huddle together embraced in hygge, counting down the days to Christmas. No wonder everyone’s always ill. Oh yes, Christmas – there’s no getting away from it. If you add up all the time this country’s on ‘Greenwich Juletide’, it’s the equivalent of one day a week over the whole of the year. Change that lyric to “I wish it could be Christmas every ‘seventh’ day.” If we lived in a world of peace, I’d lead a campaign to introduce a mandatory prison sentence for the display of decorations before December 1, the wearing of nisser hats on J-Dag (with hard labour for the morning after), and smiling at the participants in July’s World Santa Claus Congress. The sentence wouldn’t start immediately and
would only last two days: December 24 and 25. But really that would be a little petty given all the worthwhile causes out there. I’ll stick to enforcing my rules on my kids. I spotted my first Jul ad on the evening of October 31. I’m guessing they’d decided the kids were all in bed and Halloween was done and dusted, and it was time for the next marketing push. With that in mind, we’re running our first Christmasrelated article this week (see G8): a guide to what’s going on for the children. There’s a lot to take in, and it really is worth sparing a little time in November to prepare for the onslaught. Meanwhile, it’s not all doom and gloom, with lots of performances worth checking out (see G2 and G3 for what’s currently on), the pick of which must be the Copenhagen Theatre Circle’s panto Cinderella, which starts on December 15 and plays until January 7 (see www.ctcircle.dk for more details). The group, which last year put on a splendid musical version of A Christmas Carol that they’d written themselves, hope to establish a pantomime tradition in the city. And we should support them 100 percent on the proviso they don’t ever give any roles to former contestants on Paradise Hotel or, god forbid, start it in November.

Livlægens Besøg (The Royal Physician visits)
Store Scene, Operaen, Ekvipagemestervej 10, 1438 Cph K; ends 13 Dec, performances at 19:30 on Tue, Thu, Nov 29, Dec 2, Dec 6, Dec 9, Dec 13; tickets 95-695kr; 160 mins including one intermission; in Danish with English supertitles; www.kglteater.dk THE STORY has been told and retold for centuries and will remain a fixture in Danish history for centuries to come. The dramatic, ghastly and erotic tale may read like a caricature – as if made up, a morbid fantasy of madness, lust and power. But no, in this case truth is stranger and certainly more shocking than any fictitious concoction. What today would no doubt be dubbed ‘Struensee-gate’ is timelessly epic and therefore equally relevant to newcomers and fans of the tragedy. In brief, the said Struensee was the royal physician of Christian VII, officially the Danish king from 1766 to 1808. Now, according to the history books Christian was never a born leader, and various severe mental diseases - among them schizophrenia obviously only made matters worse. While his mind kept buckling under the weight of commonplace royal duties, he would saunter off with his Great Dane or smash up the furniture at Hirschholm Castle to blow off steam. With the shrewdness, cunning and treachery worthy of Uriah Heep, Struensee, the king’s trusted doctor, found a golden opportunity in his patient’s absence, mental and otherwise. Instigating an affair with the
Performance Tornerose (Sleeping Beauty)
Takkelloftet, Operaen, Ekvipagemestervej 10, 1438 Cph K; performances Sat 17:00, other shows sold out; tickets: 50100kr; www.kglteater.dk Everyone knows the story of Sleeping Beauty, who falls asleep for one hundred years until her Prince Charming awakens her with a kiss. This puppet opera based on the familiar tale takes place in the Opera’s Takkelloftet room – where the children themselves create the ‘fairytale room’ in which the story takes place. Tornerose is sung in Danish. EM
unhappily married queen – Queen Caroline Matilda of Britain – he was able to facilitate his own rise to power as de facto regent of the country. Already mind-boggling enough as far as historical drama goes, the mad king’s inventive-slash-desperate ways of combating his demons are no less legendary or unbelievable. Opera-goers mustn’t miss the historical ‘sick leave’ that degenerates into a huge drinking binge with whores and outlaws in the underworld of Copenhagen. To say the least about the most, trouble is brewing in Livlægen’s Besøg (The Visit of the Royal Physician). I won’t paraphrase beyond this point except to say that in the most literal and violent sense it ain’t over till it’s over. Unsurprisingly, the story has inspired and challenged an impressive number of playwrights, novelists, historians, and directors of film, dance and theatre down the ages. All have felt compelled to add their personal touch to the scandalous tale. Thus the films The Dictator (1935) and Herscher ohne Krone (1956), and next year Mads Mikkelsen will star as Struensee in yet another feature film about the scandal. But if we’re talking literature, no novel holds a candle to Per Oluf Enquist’s Swedish novel of 1999 on which this modern opera of the same name is based. Besides being a runaway bestseller, Enquist’s novel exerted such a magnetism on the Danish, royaltyhungry audience that an opera adaptation seemed the logical move. When it premiered in 2009, one prescient reviewer suggested that the flexible and vivid production had several future reruns in it, not least because W
Betty Nansen Te- NE atret, Frederiksberg Alle 57, Frederiksberg; starts Sat, ends Jan 15, performances Sat 17:00, Mon, Tue &Thu 20:00; tickets: 150–360kr; www. bettynansen.dk The team behind the theatre gigs Gasolin’, Come Together and Bob Dylan are back. They’ve been given the ultimate challenge – to create a theatre show based on Mozart’s music. With a sense of timing and dizzying costumes, the unreasonable Cederholm & Co takes you on a journey through Mozart’s world of famous compositions, as you’ve never seen or heard them before. Rediscover Mozart’s big hits in a new guise with some fantastic singers and actors. EM
Fallen from Heaven
of the music. The words were written by the acclaimed librettist Bo Holten, a man respected for his classical compositions, film scores and conducting talent. Musically, according to Holten, Livlægen constantly goes for that sound and stylistic touch that most vibrantly charges a dramatic or emotional scene. If you could translate the scores, the music would tell the same story of power play, intrigue, madness and catharsis that the characters enact. While fairly straightforward and transparent, Holten finds it nevertheless steers clear of the homogeneous. One reviewer has praised the librettist’s dual flirtation with traditional Danish song and full-on musical – kitsch is apparently approached but never reached. Last time around, in 2009, individual accolades were paid to such seasoned singers as Johan Reuter (inhabiting the role of Struensee), Djina Mai-Mai (Bootee-Caterine, a notorious prostitute central to the story), Gert Henning-Jensen (King Christian VII) and Sten Byriel (the prime minister Ove HøegGuldberg). They all reprise their roles this winter. Part love story, part social drama, Livlægens Besøg chronicles the rising tensions in two particularly explosive environments: our human society and the human heart. During rehearsal some of the singers recounted how they were powerfully struck by the historical honesty of their creation. The result was a shot of inspiration and intensity. There’s a good chance those two forces will colour your personal experience at the Opera. KASPER R GULDBERG

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.

Così fan tutte
Store Scene, Operaen, Ekvipagemestervej 10, 1438 Cph K; performances at 19:30 on Sat, Mon; tickets 95-795kr; 180 mins including one intermission; in Italian with Danish supertitles; www. kglteater.dk Ranking among Mozart’s most memorable works, Così fan tutte starts with a cynical old philosopher who makes a wager with two officers, claiming he can prove that their girlfriends, like all women, are fickle. 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
Props for keeping it simple Republique’s Little Scene, Østerfælled Torv 34, Cph Ø; ends Nov 26, performances Tue-Fri 20:00, Sat 15:00; tickets 160–255kr; www.republique.dk “EAT YOUR VEGETABLES”, “Love your neighbour”, and “Turn off the television” - these are the simple messages that Jo Lancaster and Simon Yates, along with their children, send out to the audience through their acrobatic performance, Propaganda. A world apart from the usual sequined costumes, tamed wild animals and fire-eating and sword-swallowing acts, Propaganda is an acrobatic act that will not only surprise you with the simplicity of its contents, but manage to grab the curiosity and interest of both the very youngest and very oldest theatre-goers in Copenhagen. The messages may be simple, but the acts and the performances are far beyond it. A show - which can be described as a combination of performance art, circus and theatre - has the audience clutching the edges of their seats in awe. This family show, which opened on 9 November at the city’s Republique theatre, has been drawing in crowds from the age of eight

upwards. Having only just heard of the group, I went to the show expecting a young crowd, but was pleasantly surprised at the range of ages in the audience. And rightly so, as its appeal is universal. Hailing from New South Wales in Australia, Yates and Lancaster have made acrobatics their life, and now along with their children Grover and Fidel, they have started a propaganda of their own in the form of a show that uses simple elements to send out simple messages, revolutionising the conventional ideas of circus and acrobatic shows as we have come to know them. Simplicity seemed to be the central theme of the entire show, from the stage settings to the costumes, and from the props to even the music. The show was based entirely on the performers’ abilities and talent, rather than on a striking musical extravaganza, circus animals and other paraphernalia. Both Yates and Lancaster, with their lean bodies and precision movements, present no doubts about the years of rigorous training that has been put into developing the show into what it has become today. At a time when traditional circus and acrobatic acts seem to be disappearing and making way for modern three-dimensional acts backed by a grand display of

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. The show makes 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.

moral. For in Propaganda, one does not see half-starved beasts that look intoxicated or bored, or little children performing lifethreatening acts that make parents cringe.

After three years of quiet, we predict a riot Kaiser Chiefs
Amager bio Monday,20:00; 300 kr www.billetlugen.dk www. kaiserchiefs.com
ailing from a small village just outside of Leeds and taking their band-name from the South African football club the Kaiser Chiefs, the five-bit became household names overnight in the mid‘00s. But it wasn’t without hard work. Their sublimely upbeat, fun and popular debut album, Employment (2005), was the product of years playing together under the name of Parva, during which they perfected a recipe for modern rock that would go on to fill their first three albums. Alongside the likes of Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads and The Young Knives, the group became NME pin-ups, were shortlisted for a
Mercury Music Prize, and played some of the most prestigious gigs on the British Isles - all in a matter of months. Candescent rock-pop became their niche and - with a seemingly endless discography of catchy singles such as ‘I Predict A Riot’, ‘Oh My God’ and ‘Modern Way’ - Ricky Wilson and his merry men ruled the radiowaves and became one of the most sought-after groups on the festival circuit. Churning out records in quick succession - each very much in check with their signature style - the beat rolled on with their third record, Off With Their Heads (2008), which included one of their best-loved hits, ‘Never Miss A Beat’. A much-deserved break ensued before the Chiefs released The Future Is Medieval (2011). No long winning over crowds with simple “nah nah nahs” and energetic chord sequences, the Chiefs have assuredly matured both in sound
and mind - as ‘Things Change’, the second electro-tinged single on their latest record proves. A storehouse of new terms such as atmospheric, lo-fi and provocative now come into play when describing the modern-day Chiefs. Seemingly turning a cold shoulder on their trademark simplicity, their new material is infused with something that may only be termed as ‘cynicism’. It’s implied in the song titles - ‘Long Way From Celebrating’, ‘Out of Focus’ and ‘Things Change’ - and of course the markedly sober instrumentation that rules the soundscape of the record. A cello even sneaks its way on to the final track on the album, ‘If You Will Have Me’. In a word the new album signals a farewell to carefree punchlines like “Oh my God” and “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby”, and those aforementioned, unrelenting “nah nah nahs”. This doesn’t necessarily mark
the demise of the Chiefs as we remember them. No longer in the business of wowing the university freshers week and the tipsy festival crowds, the Chiefs now want to seep into the consciousness of new listeners through their music. Tunes like ‘Starts With Nothing’, ‘When All Is Quiet’ and ‘Child of The Jago’ are tailored to the introspective listener. Of course, there’s still a degree of continuity to their music and it’s not as though the Chiefs have rebranded themselves entirely. There are perks in the album that highlight how the Chiefs remain, at heart, devoted tunesmiths. Several numbers hearken back to the roots of their music, with a hint of the likes of The Clash, The Smiths and Madness coming through in the song ‘Dead Or In Serious Trouble’. Incidentally, ‘Child of The Jago’ treads on the same ground as their former hit ‘I
Predict A Riot’. The surging chord sequence still remains intact but it’s evident that the group have matured, and the overwhelming energy heard in their earlier material has become patently more subtle. This is symptomatic of the record as a whole. The Chiefs have upped the creative ante while reducing the intensity of their music. However, lest we forget that the Chiefs - one of the greatest British alternative rock bands of the ‘00s - will not turn out with a set focused entirely on their new record. The material that led to their meteoric rise will remain at the core of the show with material drawn from across their discography - ‘Everyday I Love You Less And Less’, ‘Oh My God‘ and ‘Never Miss A Beat’ spring to mind - while gently introducing listeners to their new-found sound.

Lille Vega; 21:00; 150kr; The all-Danish trio became one of the most popular new bands in Denmark this summer. Their self-titled debut record released this year is neatly packaged as sunkissed sugar-pop with each of the ten tracks beaming with joyous, chirpy and rhythmic melodies - not a cloud in the sky. Take a listen to their hit single release, ‘Facing the Sun’, and you’ll most likely be won over. now signed to the colossal record label Bella Union, the group have become purveyors of Aarhus’s ever-growing alternative scene and this will prove to be an immensley popular gig.

Review The Kooks HHHHHH
october 22 Store Vega
ne of the most common remarks made by foreigners about the Danes is that they are a reserved bunch of people who enjoy their personal space. Although in many cases that probably holds a lot of truth, everyone at The Kooks concert on friday of last week set aside their Scandinavian statutes on personal space and got up close and personal as they pushed and shoved their way through the sold-out crowd towards the stage at Store Vega. The Kooks, an english indie rock band formed in Brighton, certainly had all the right moves to make the fervent crowd of mostly teenage girls (‘Kookies’) go wild – especially for the blue-eyed, V-neck sporting front man, Luke Pritchard. After an endless 45-minute gap from the time the opening act finished, the anxiously awaited main event started the night
Global; 21:00; 90kr formed in france 1998 with its members coming from across the Mediterranean, the collective have patented something equally as diverse through music. Adventurous, exotic and unexpected, the group’s sound is born from out of the diaspora. Zigzagging cultural and musical traditions - with elements of gnawa, raï, electronica and modern rock all entwined into their enrapturing compositions - Les Boukakes are gradually gaining a reputation alongside other major world music artists such as femi Kuti, Manu Chao and Taraf Haïdouks. Definitely something a little different, and worth seeing if you’re in the nørrebro neighbourhood tonight. (Arabic) Dvdn with their first single ‘Is it Me?’ from their latest album, Junk of the Heart, which debuted earlier this year. The upbeat tune that highlights Pritchard’s falsetto as he sings about an off-beat relationship is a pristine example of Brit pop, circa Arctic Monkeys before they went off the rock and roll deep end. Keeping songs short – right around the three-minute mark – The Kooks were able to power through 20 tunes during their hour and a half performance, mixing a handful of new tracks into the set including the supercatchy and simile filled ‘eskimo Kiss’. As the crowd bobbed their heads convincingly enough to the newer songs, it was the old favourites that got everyone up off their feet and dancing in classic happy Kooks style, most notably ‘She Moves in Her own Way’ and the heavier ‘You Don’t Love Me’. However, the peak moment of the night wasn’t until Pritchard grabbed his acoustic guitar, the lights dimmed, and the audience was invited to sing along to an up-close-and-personal version of the band’s hit ‘Sea-

Monster Magnet take their audiences back to the halcyon days of classic rock while souping it up with various grunge, psychedelic and metal elements. Bolshy, rebellious and fuzzy, they became heavily influential in shaping American rock. Save for a few personnel changes, the vision of Monster Magnet remains unchanged, and their hard-pounding live sets are as bold as ever. (english) Dvdn

The Rock; 22:00; 185kr The all-American three-piece combine a bevy of heavy rock, metal and psychedelic rock elements to create stoner rock. fans love their bolshy sound production and Led Zeppelin-like instrumentation, which gave way to the birth of later stoner rock groups such as fu Manchu and Monster Magent (also playing at Vega tonight). Currently promoting their latest LP, Blast Tyrant (2011), the Maryland rockers are still frothing with heavy basslines, relentless guitar solos and crooning vocals, retaining their crown as one of America’s leading stoner rock groups.

A classically-trained musician and vocalist who led a troubled youth, Wolf emerged as an inspired songsmith in the late ‘90s. It was fashionable to listen to Wolf. enigmatic one-worded song-titles, violas and electronic samples were symptomatic of his experimental songs – that and his self-created androgynous image. The recent release of Lupercalia (2011) has brought to light another facet of Wolf ’s Romantic imagination: positivity, and it has reignited interest in his music. (english) Dvdn

side’. Pritchard’s vocals nearly disappeared with everyone in the house passionately singing along. As the mainly female crowd screamed in approval, Pritchard took a moment to introduce his often overlooked band members, including Hugh Harris on guitar and singing back-up vocals, Peter Denton on bass, and Paul Garred behind the drums. After more than an hour of silly similes, catchy choruses and melodic meanderings, the ardent audience still begged for
more after the last note of ‘Do you Wanna’ finished ringing through the room. And this time, they weren’t kept waiting for long as the band bounced back onto the stage with an encore performance of ‘Saboteur’, ‘Junk of the Heart (Happy)’ and their biggest hit ‘naïve’. “I wanna make you happy, I wanna make you feel alive,” Pritchard sings in ‘Junk of the Heart’ – a goal which he more than accomplished with his Copenhagen crowd.

Christmas for kids Winter is approaching, and with its long evenings, cold days and the inevitable series of sniffles, it can seem a bit of a chore. But winter means Christmas, and that means excited children, and a whole new set of traditions to learn. Danish Christmas is a very handmade affair, with ‘hygge’ going into overdrive and children getting involved in the preparations and celebrations. For children the countdown to ‘Jul’ starts in earnest on 1 December with the opening of the first gift of their Christmas Advent Calendar (Julekalendere). Traditionally kids receive a small present such as chocolates, toys, books and activities on every day, or every Sunday, of the advent period. Most supermarkets sell a range of chocolate calendars, or you can get others that contain toys such as Lego, Schleich, Playmobil or Hello Kitty from www.eurotoys.dk. If you’re feeling creative you can make your own calendar, and if you want to keep your budget down, you can always pop in a few activity cards. For a great selection of small toys and wrapping, take a look at www.lirumlarumleg.dk. At the same time, on Danish TV, you can watch the Julekalenderen, the daily advent calendar TV show. This year’s are DR1 19.30: Nissebanden i Grønland; DR Ramasjang 18.00: Hotel krølle på halen – En stjerneskør vinter; and TV2 20:00: Ludvig & Julemanden. On 13 December your child will probably be involved in a Luciadag celebration at nursery or school where the children dress in white, carry candles, or lights and sing-songs.

The library area lends the pub a distinctly British Victorian feel
whisky is best enjoyed clean and goes down smooth. It was a surprising and welcomed beverage after all that beer. The low-key atmosphere of The Bishops Arms is instantly relaxing after a day in the harsh office lighting or staring at a computer screen. And despite the large seating area and quiet music playing in the background, only a soft constant murmur of voices and occasional bout of laughter was heard - even on a busy Friday night - making it the ideal location to unwind and enjoy a conversation with a friend over drinks and a bite to eat. Although best know for its widevariety of whisky and beer, The Bishops Arms also serves better-than-average British pub cuisine, including the standard fish and chips platter, and a burger with onion rings and bacon aptly named ‘The Bishops Burger’. On top of those basics, however, there are also options for ever-evolving seasonal entrées like salmon in a saffron and lime sauce and grilled chipotle-glazed entrecote.
Wretblad says that although it’s mainly a bar, it is extremely important to keep the food up to par with the beverages, placing it into the unique category of a ‘gastropub’. The Copenhagen branch of The Bishops Arms is the first to open outside of Sweden, where there are 34 different locations of the British-style pub. Wretblad describes the pubs as a concept rather than a chain. “They are all owned by Elite Hotels of Sweden, but they aren’t franchises. They have a special touch and a homey feel,” she explained. Some areas of the establishment are pub-like, some resemble a burger joint, and hidden in the back corner, there’s a special nook that is set up like a library, with bookshelves, leather chairs and a cosy fireplace. This mix-match of feelings all comes together in an overall classic British pub feel. Overall, the experience was supreme. Not only were the staff extraordinarily friendly – but so were the customers. Everyone seemed at ease and in a good JESSICA SLICER

Set at a hotel far away from civilisation, the story follows two friends, Kay and Gerda, who are suddenly delivered a magic mirror – with no idea where it came from. The mirror turns out to be a gateway to another world – the Snow Queen’s icy universe – where all your innermost dreams and wishes come true … but for a price. Visually stunning, the set boasts a raw and rusty icy hotel by innovative, award-winning designer Joanni Eggert. The Snow Queen is a fantastic dramatisation sure to warm up kids’ imaginations. EM
Ordning & Reda Grønnegade 1B, 1107 Cph K; Open Mon-Thu 10:00-18:00, Fri 10:0019:00 Sat 10:00-16:00; 3332 3018; www.ordning-reda.dk If letter writing is still something more than three people in the world do, there are options galore at this Swedish office goods supplier. The visceral pleasure of the shop comes from its colour organisation, where shelves neatly divide co-ordinated products. Envelopes even come in black, perfect for use with a turquoise metallic pen. Stock up on leather-bound notebooks, quilted laptop bags, ring binders in strong shades of purple and red, matching paperclips, bulls-eye mouse pads, and faux-crocodile skin archival boxes.
Tutein & Koch Farvergade 8, 1463 Cph K; Open Mon-Fri 09:00-17:30, Sat 10:00-15:00; 3313 3633; www.tuteinogkoch.dk A specialised shop carrying supplies for artists, architects, draftsmen, and those who like the texture of stationery paper. The variety of mysterious objects is immense, covering areas that other shops overlook such as tools for making jewellery, airbrushing cars, and whittling bird whistles out of pine. In the back there are specials on leftover cuts of specialty papers in metallic shades of gold, tracing vellum or heavyweight oak tag. Tabletops showcase architecture tomes for browsing or buying, and the range of writing pens offers endless opportunity for doodling and other more earnest endeavours.

UPON WALKING into The Bishops Arms, the first thing most people will notice is the extremely long bar – a bar extensive enough, in fact, to host up to 30 beers on tap all at once. But the possibilities don’t end there. Behind the bar, there are more than 400 types of whisky and approximately 200 different beers available, making this British-style pub the perfect place to stop for an old favourite or to find something completely new and exhilarating. With all the options, the choices seem daunting. However, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and available to help you pick your poison – especially manager Christina Wretblad who promised to help my friend and I find the perfect beer. We embarked on our beer-hunt with the most popular selection at The Bishops Arms, the light and hoppy ‘new Americanstyle’ Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, which is a deep-amber colour with bright high notes and a refreshingly spicy flavour. Next in our line of sampling, we got into the Christmas spirit with Nørrebro Julebryg. Spicier than normal beers, this seasonal specialty is a bit darker and filled with ginger undertones, giving it the perfect Christmas touch. We also tried a harder-to-find beer from a Norwegian microbrewery that was a bit bolder than the Sierra Nevada but still delicious - probably my version of the perfect beer. In terms of the whisky, Wretblad recommended the Springbank 18, Benniach 18, and Mortlach 16, but not being big whisky drinkers, my friend and I only dared to tried the gentler Auchentoshan Treewood single-malt. A blend of dark fruit, caramel and toasted hazelnuts, this

BY STACI MENARD
I JUST MOVED, and now I have a freezer. It took three years - a freezer is not necessarily a given in housing rentals here. I remember the day I walked into the kitchen of my first rental and took a look at my new fridge. What followed was an endless rant about the restrictions that such a fridge represents. “You mean I can’t fit two-litre bottles of Pepsi and boxes of home delivery pizza in my fridge?” I’m kidding. I know some of you think that’s all we Americans consume. But I have news for you. We eat hamburgers too. Fast forward three years, and I’ve made incredible strides. As least that’s what my therapist tells me.
I’ve learnt how to optimise my small fridge, adapting my food shopping, meal planning, and cooking in a way that fits the inside of my fridge. Sure, every couple of months things get out of hand, but then I take a step back and say: “Okay, you can either make a therapy appointment or organise this fridge. And you know what - a clean and tidy fridge is the best therapy. But back to the freezer – and this recipe for ice cream, which I have been guarding like a hawk protecting its young, in anticipation that I would one day have a freezer again. This is not your run-of-the mill frozen dessert. It’s magic. Truly.

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 www.caphorn.dk 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!

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Copenhagen N; 3535 7535; fourcourse menu 450kr, sevencourse 775kr (with wine menu 1450kr); www.kiin.dk 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, email@example.com; 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 Reinwald’s. 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

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 .

First and foremost, it requires no ice cream maker or throwing a coffee can back and forth until your arms ache. Better still, it’s comprised of basic kitchen staples and is, quite simply, extraordinary. The texture is sublime - just make sure you have enough room in your freezer. Make base. Gently heat sweetened condensed milk and chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts, this should take less than a minute. Let cool. Stir in vanilla, salt, and sour cream. Set aside.
Oysters & Grill Sjællandsgade 1B, 2200 Copenhagen N; open Mon-Sat 17:30-24:00, Sun 12:00-21:00; oysters cost 15-35kr each, main courses cost 135-185kr; 7020 6171; www.cofoco.dk Oysters & Grill is not rocket science, yet it give diners in Copenhagen access to fresh and delicious food at reasonable prices with an emphasis on seafood, fish and meats, which are prepared simply and flavourfully.

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. JC Brasserie Degas Trommesalen 5, Cph V; 3322 2826; see www.brasseriedegas.dk for more info If you like macarons, this is the place to get them.

Whip heavy cream with electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks begin to form, about two minutes. Fold a third of the whipped cream into the chocolate mix until well incorporated. Fold remaining whipped cream into the chocolate mix until completely incorporated and smooth. Scrape mixture into an airtight container and freeze until firm, at least six hours or up to two weeks. Serve. Note: You know that cherry sauce that is ubiquitous in Denmark this time of year? Sure, you can serve it over the traditional Danish risengrød, but why not heat some up and spoon it over your ice cream. I guarantee you’ll love it. Also, since the vanilla flavour tends to be sweeter than the chocolate variety, try serving it with a plain cake, such as pound cake, almond cake, or other lightly sweetened cake.

Saxo Cafe Colbjørnsensgade 11, 1652 Cph V; open 11:00-23:00; 3888 8288, www.saxocafe.dk; 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, www.goldprag.dk 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 www.dalaman.dk; three-course menus 119kr, 139kr & 159kr pp Turkish restaurant Dalaman puts an emphasis on good food and customer satisfaction.

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; www.brewpub.dk; 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; www.oldenglishpub.dk 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

Le Sommelier: as French as Perrier and Brigitte’s derriere
Regale your friends about the quail and that robust glass of Burgundy Pinot Noir
tastes. The salty crispy skin gives it a crunchy texture and adds another layer of flavour to the dish. The rich food is paired with an equally robust and complex Burgundy Pinot Noir. Le Sommelier certainly does not let down France’s reputation for rich and full-flavoured cuisine. The service here thankfully does not fit the French stereotype. The waiting staff are attentive and thorough, though not lingering. They are also relaxed and affable, helping to put us at ease as we work our way
Be satisfied by the charm of delicacy… Macaroons & French pastry in a modern environment. Brasserie Degas reopens its doors in a new location, presenting once again to all its customers, the famous club sandwich & Foie Gras salad.

THE ONSET of a dark winter calls for some much-needed celebration. The days are growing shorter, the wind is starting to bite, and a last hurrah is desperately required to momentarily forget about what lies ahead. You might have a more legitimate reason to celebrate, perhaps a birthday or anniversary, but no matter what the case, Le Sommelier is where such an indulgent evening should be spent. Judging by the name, one expects this restaurant to have a comprehensive wine list. Yet what it offers is less a list and more a tome that represents a vast collection of the best new and old world wines. One often hears the lofty claim that Le Sommelier has the best wine list in Copenhagen - our experience did not prove this wrong. However, the spacious venue is far more than just a wine bar. Chef Francis Cardenau ensures that the classic French cuisine more than matches the quality of its liquid partner. However, Le Sommelier is not runof-the-mill French fine dining. It’s unpretentious, cosy, and the prices won’t burn a hole in your pocket. The dark wooden floorboards lend a rustic charm to the dining room, as do the vintage posters and bronze cookware hanging from the walls. Yet, the soft candlelight and relaxed atmosphere has a decidedly romantic feel. We start with a glass of 2000 Taittinger Vintage Brut Blanc de Blancs that sets the decadent tone of the evening. For starters, we order two classics: Moules Marinières - steamed blue mussels with thyme - and Seared Foie Gras, served with glazed beetroot apple pie, thyme and pickled red onions. The mussels are a generous serving, fresh and in a light buttery broth that goes well with the crusty bread. The foie gras has been carefully roasted and the sweetness of the apple pie balances the strong flavours perfectly. Simon, the head sommelier, offers us a 2009 Pessac-Léognan Blanc to accompany the mussels and a 2008 Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast in California to pair with the foie gras. For mains, we order beef Fauxfilet with crispy potatoes and Quail served with parsnips, parsley puree and berries. My French dining companion attests to the authenticity of the faux-filet, cooked flawlessly rare and tender. The quail provides an array of intense and competing
through the menu’s hedonistic offerings. As dessert is served, Simon begins to show why he is the sommelier of Le Sommelier. He serves us dessert wine, a 1960 Domaine Sainte-Barbe Rivesaltes. Albert Camus may have died in 1960 but France produced another great son that year, and one that goes down a treat with a sinfully sweet crème brûlée. To finish up, he emerges with two more gems from the cellar. A calvados – an apple brandy from Normandy that was casked
in 1913 (yes, that is pre-First World War) - and a 1972 cognac. A single espresso rounds off the experience and provides a glimmer of sobriety as we head for the door. Le Sommelier prides itself as a ‘lifestyle restaurant’ offering a total experience of the finer things in life. We were not let down. If you are looking for classic French food and top-class wine service in a relaxed atmosphere, look no further.

Dark source material suffers under a light touch ELIZABETH DELLAPENNA
The Help (7) Dir: Tate Taylor; US drama, 2011, 137 mins; Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain
Premiered November 17
HE FILM The Help shows the world of white society women in Jackson, Mississippi and their way of adopting the separate but equal doctrine. So what’s the major point of contention for the antagonist of The Help? Toilets. Hilly Holbrook (Howard) believes that every family in the city of Jackson should have a separate toilet for their black maid. The Civil Rights Movement was well under way in the 1960s, the time period in which The Help takes place. Following the end of the Civil War a century before, southern states in the United States were required to adopt equality laws. But these former slave-owning states maintained that they could have equality and preserve separation between the races. The Help is about an aspiring author, named Skeeter (Stone), who is offered her first job writing a cleaning advice column for the local newspaper. She takes the job, though she lacks experience or knowledge on the topic. She asks her friend if she can talk to her maid, Aibileen (Davis), about cleaning. An unusual friendship is born and Skeeter is inspired to write a book detailing the point of view of the maids in Jackson. Because it is dangerous at the time, Aibileen initially resists. But eventually she comes around. The Help is adapted from a
The three girls were delighted when Crown Princess Mary (or is that the Duchess of Cambridge?) managed to make it to their charity luncheon worldwide bestseller of the same name, by Kathryn Stockett. At its heart, the story is the epitome of a melodrama. It’s all about strong women who overcome difficulties in their lives. The trailer had promised more comedy than was delivered, and in this sense is not a true reflection of the novel, which is full of humour. There were definitely amusing parts in The Help, but overall there was a lot of heartache. Even though the film pulled at my heartstrings, it was very entertaining and enjoyable. The costume and production design were superb.
DANISH FILM INstITUTE / IN THE HEART OF COPENHAGEN
The characters really drew me in and I felt the cast was, in most places, ideal. Davis as Aibileen was excellent. Howard was perfectly hateable as Hilly, and Spencer as Minny was both vivacious and complex. The performance by Jessica Chastain as Celia was also wonderful. Unfortunately though, Stone wasn’t bad in the role, but she wasn’t great either. I feel like every time you hire Emma Stone, you get Emma Stone. Though this seems to be a general trend in Hollywood nowadays, you’re getting the actor not the character.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I
Premiered November 17 Playing Nationwide
We present some 50 films with English dialogue or subtitles every month. See what’s on at dfi.dk/english GothersGade 55 / tel 3374 3412 / tue-Fri 9:30-22:00 / sat 12:00-22:00 / sun 12-19:30
balanced, each chapter being told from the point of view of the characters Sketeer, Aibileen and Minny (two of whom are black!) At one point in The Help, Aibileen states that the book they’re writing is just telling stories and doesn’t have anything to do with civil rights. That’s essentially how I feel about this film. The Civil Rights Movement was just the backdrop for the story, but not really the point. The film is just heavy enough without being dark, though I think I would have preferred it if it had gone a little darker.
The saga continues ... with a visit to the dentist Dir: Bill Condon; USA drama, 2011, 117 mins; Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner
In November, enjoy John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Alanis Morrisette, Björk, Justin Timberlake and other stars who have entered the movie scene. Or see ‘Blade Runner’ and five other Philip K. Dick adaptations!
The major criticism this film has been receiving is that the film focuses too much on a white heroine who helps the black maids out. Apparently this implies that the black women wouldn’t be able to do it themselves and needed some kind of white heroine to save them. I think that’s a little harsh, but I agree that there isn’t enough focus on the maids; all of the drama takes place mostly among the white women or between the white women and their maids. It would have been nice to really see the viewpoint of a maid. The book itself was far more evenly
Y WISDOM TEETH operation is a hazy recollection of long-winded pain and boredom that left me with an atrocious aftertaste of blood that lingered for a week. A very similar experience in fact
to watching the latest Twilight installment – Breaking Dawn Part 1. Despite being an Oscar winning screen writer, director Bill Condon manages to extract all the ‘Twilight’ from the film. After stripping away the action, violence and passion, he leaves a skeleton of melodrama, romance and fluffy characters. Following on from the third film, Breaking Dawn begins with Edward marrying the 18-yearold Bella who has chosen to become a vampire. While on honeymoon, Bella falls pregnant and a series of medical complications with her half human, half vampire baby ensues, forcing Bella to choose between her baby’s life and her own. Tragically she lives!
Pattinson gives his usual sultry, overly dramatic performance, except now he’s perfected the art of the sulking pout. Stewart, still just as annoying as the shy, awkward teenager might be carrying a half vampire baby, but all we get is one-dimensional Bella, just with a bigger belly. Even the long-awaited sex scene (Ed: who’s the father then?), meant to represent their overwhelming passion for each other is extremely underwhelming to watch. A glimpse of kissing and then an after-shot of Bella with bruises, a broken bed and pillows in pieces is all we get. Eighty percent of Twilight’s appeal was the sexual tension between the love-struck leads… now that they’ve done the deed
I expect the appeal for the next film will be zero. The one ray of anaesthetic in the film was the comedic touches. In particular the wedding speeches. “I hope you’ve had enough sleep in the last 18 years because you won’t be getting much anymore,” says Edward’s brother, referring to Bella becoming a vampire. And I was in stitches with Bella’s baby name idea “If it’s a girl I’ll call her Renesmee; it combines both of our mother names, Renee and Esme.” Dentists are painful and hideously expensive but necessary. Twilight is painful, costs you 100 kroner and is absolutely not necessary. EMILY MCCLEAN

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. 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
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. 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 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. 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. 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 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.
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 from a business trip in Hong Kong, unwittingly carries a fast mutating flu virus into her home. Contagion is rather like the mini-series 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
Friends with Benefits (3) 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
Tower Heist Dir: Brett Ratner; US comedy, 2011, 99 mins; Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Eddie Murphy, Tea Leoni, Michael Pena, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe After seeing Tower Heist, you can once again safely say that Eddie Murphy is one funny son-of-apunk-ass-bitch. Stiller plays Josh Kovacs, the building manager of The Tower. When the Tower’s wealthiest resident, Arthur Shaw is arrested by the FBI for fraud the seeds of retribution are sown. When Josh hears that Shaw has hidden at least $20 mil in his digs, Murphy is then recruited to conjur up a capable criminal team just like Danny Ocean’s 11. Unfortunately, the script and the actual heist cannot keep up with the excellent groundwork laid by the actors and their characters. Yes, Tower Heist is classic Hollywood shtick, but the thing is still pretty damn funny, even if it does start a little slow. KE
The Three Musketeers 2D (11) Dir: Paul WS Anderson; UK adventure, 2011, 102 mins; Logan Lerman, Matthew MacFadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans 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.

Jane Eyre Dir: Cary Joji Fukunaga; UK/US romance, 120 mins; Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Judi Dench 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. The social criticism on the hypocrisy of Victorianism is removed from the film creating a less harsh environment. Because of this lack of important detail, the film not only lacks meaning, but also really drags. Sadly, this film is just another beautiful bore. ED
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

RFK must die - The Assassination of Robert Kennedy

DR K, Sat 23:00
JFK WAS SHOT two days after Robert Kennedy’s 38th birthday, and to mark both occasions this week we have acclaimed documentaries about their assassinations. The history books still show that Robert Kennedy, who would have been 86 this Sunday, was killed by Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian failed jockey. But the overwhelming evidence in RFK Must Die - The Assassination of Robert Kennedy suggests they’re backing the wrong horse. From his cell today, just down the corridor from Charles Manson, SS still remembers nothing about a day on which many contend he played the role of a Manchurian Candidate decoy assassin. Hypnotised and with eight bullets in his gun, he somehow managed to fire 13, including one
effort that made the magic bullet look like a short-range blast from Big Bertha. Shane O’Sullivan’s film is “an exhaustive investigation that is always provocative and often disturbing”, claims Variety, while Time Out found it “dizzyingly informative”. Not to be outdone by his kid bro, the first episode of JFK: 3 Shots that changed America (DR2, Tue 21:00) is a minuteby-minute account of the 20th century’s most cited day as you’ve never seen or heard it before. Home movies, local radio and other rare footage conspire to let you relive the fateful moments as if they’re happening in real-time. And when it actually happens, you won’t see it but instead be informed of it as you watch your favourite day time soap.
A brilliant week for docs continues with Louis Armstrong Good Evening Ev’rybody, an account of Satchmo’s appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival in Wales, just a year before his wonderful life ended. Elsewhere, Secret Iraq (DR2, Wed 23:00) talks to the country’s insurgents about their fight for free- DR K, Sat 23:00 RFK must die - the Assassination of Robert Kennedy dom; they don’t come any more absurd than Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents (TV3, Mon-Thu 22:55) in which mum and dad trail their brats abroad; and Homeland (SV1, Wed 22:00), the acclaimed drama series about a US soldier who might or might not have been recruited by Al-Qaeda, finally enjoys its premiere a month after being pulled by NR2 – conspiracy theories abound.
