BEN HAMILTON

DO YOU EVER catch yourself trying to calm your screaming child down, thinking how useless you’d be trying to hide from the Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto in Schindler’s List? Or when your kid is screaming at you because her DVD doesn’t work – the same DVD she’s gouged whole iron filings out of – do you find yourself reminiscing about the pre-CD days when the record player was out of your reach, and the only damage you could really do was to small animals? This week’s featured performance, Lecture (see G2 for details), is also taking us back in time, to a period of our lives that some of us might prefer to forget: puberty. It’s kind of personal, and not always easy to relate to other experiences. I was a late developer, and it’s hard to imagine what it would have been like to enter puberty at the age of nine. I remember taking a bath with a friend back then and being asked: “Oi Benj. How come you haven’t got any pubes then?” Little did I know that they would take

almost double the number of years his took to arrive, although he was a Hungarian adoptee and we always suspected there’d been a mix-up with the birth certificates. I also remember being 13 and listening to someone a clear foot taller than myself talking with such vitriol menace about two boys who hadn’t entered puberty by the time they were 12 - like they’d committed war crimes. To be fair, he had already sat down a year and I spent the next five years tormenting him. Yeah. Instead of waiting in the showers, pubeless in shame with a todger the size of a small pencil (I would have also made a great bully) I launched a pre-emptive strike, cutting down all my perceived enemies with sledgehammer lines. If somebody had a girlfriend, I wanted to know the name of their guide dog – I quickly acquired the nickname poisonous dwarf. Elsewhere this week, there are no little people in Going Underground (see G8), but we’ve got Santa in bondage and a whole lot of craziness; and on G12, we’ve got Nichole Accettola’s last food blog before she takes an extended break. Being a late developer has at least made me more sensitive (get the sick bucket out) to the efforts of others and I would like to personally thank her for her sterling efforts over the last three years.

Mungo Park theatre, Fritz Hansens Vej 23, 3450 Lillerød; performances Thu Jan 19 and Fri Jan 20 at 20:00; tickets 195230kr, under-25s 120-155kr, groups (min six people aged under 25) 35kr PUBERTY: the battleground that defines us all – it is quite literally the period that makes us into who we are today. Few emerge from this time of hormonally-driven high emotions and emotional highs unscathed. From BO worthy of a declaration of martial law to late bloomers with bigger boobs than any of the class had ever envisaged, it’s a period of our lives that few will ever forget, and even fewer want to relive. Still, that didn’t stop award-winning director Heinrich Christensen drawing from his own experiences to create one of Denmark’s most popular ever plays, Opsang, which for just two nights only is being performed in English by the Mungo Park theatre group next Thursday and Friday. Lecture, the name of the English version of the 2008 original, according to Mungo Park’s communications manager Katrina Schelin is an excellent opportunity to grab a glimpse of some of the best of Danish youth theatre. “Copenhagen’s English-speaking teenagers and their parents will have the chance to experience one of the most successful Danish theatre performances aimed at young audiences,” she told InOut. “Lecture is a play for teens and grown-ups, teachers, parents and anyone who wants to understand and laugh at teenagers, themselves and at the role they play in the teens’ lives.” Mungo Park, which has played a significant role in modern Danish theatre over the last two decades, features a youthful and vibrant ensemble of actors, directors, playwrights and stenographers. Founded in 1985, the theatre currently stages an average of 400 performances a year, appealing to an audience of approximately 40,000 viewers. In the spirit of embracing controversial and innovative topics, Mungo Park’s productions tend to be thought-provoking, addressing compelling and relevant political and literary topics. The central themes in Lecture are adolescence and the seven deadly sins – a powerful combination that is bound to amuse, shock and entertain. Quite honestly, who among us cannot see a connection between the teenage condition and wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony? If

Performance Mozart

Betty Nansen Teatret, Frederiksberg Alle 57, Frederiksberg; ends Jan 22, 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

A cleaver, a cabbage and a dentist’s light - we don’t like the way this is going

one really thinks about it, themes like good versus evil, temptation, sin and redemption are perfectly linked to puberty and postpubescent life. As well as appealing to teenagers across the spectrum, this play will be of interest to anyone who enjoyed or endured - depending on the individual’s point of view - the ‘age of rebellion’. The play incorporates humour with live musical performances, featuring the popular genres of hip-hop and rock. Laced with sarcasm and clever slapstick, Lecture aims to engage the audience in serious topics concerning the realities of being a teenager. Funny, yet poignant, Lecture provides food for thought, both for teens and those of us who have crossed over to adulthood.

Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci

Store Scene, Operaen, Ekvipagemestervej 10, 1438 Cph K; ends Feb 4, 20:00 (unless stated) on Jan 22 (15:00), Jan 24, Jan 30, Feb 2, Feb 4; tickets 951,250kr; 180 mins incl intermission; Italian with Danish titles; www.kglteater.dk Enjoy two operas for the price of one: Pietro Mascagni and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s widely admired works from 1890 and 1892 respectively. The pairing (colloquially referred to by as the ‘Cav and Pag’ double-bill) was first tried in 1893 and has become a favourite with audiences ever since. Somehow the themes of adultery, hypocrisy, drinking and to-the-death duelling (Cavalleria) dovetail nicely with those of uncontrollable passion, violence, poisoning, and murder (Pagliacci). KRG

A Folk Tale

English-speaking teens will especially enjoy this play as it presents them with an opportunity to better understand a part of Danish culture that directly concerns them. They can learn more about Danish adolescent lifestyles, issues and ideals, allowing them to better contextualise their own culture, in light of that of the Danes. Anyone who has survived puberty and its blessings and curses is also in for a treat. Lecture is a fun and original way to not only understand teenagers, but also engage with them in an environment created for them. It has the potential to open up dialogue regarding both Danish and adolescent cultures. CLAUDIA SANTOS

Store Scene, Operaen, Ekvipagemestervej 10, 1438 Cph K; performances at 20:00 (unless stated) on Thu, Jan 20, Jan 21 (12:00), Jan 23, Jan 24, Jan 28; tickets 95-595kr. (half-price concession for those under 25); 180 mins. including an intermission; www.kglteater.dk, billet@ kglteater.dk, 9816 5296 In early 2011 the directors Nikolaj Hübbe (a veritable rock star in the world of ballet) and Sorella Englund (a legendary Bournonville-inter-

preter with five decades of experience) debuted their tastefully modernised A Folk Tale, another Bournonville-gem, at the Royal Theatre. Now, one year later, we’re lucky to welcome its return. A Folk Tale is often praised for being very accessible and appealing to all ages. Its huge popularity speaks for itself and may, in part, be a testimony to playgoers’ enduring interest in fairy tales. Another factor may be the alluring dreamy quality that stems from exquisite music and a host of fantastic characters – mostly in a seductive mood. And, of course, everybody can relate to a vicious, ugly troll. Check out next week’s InOut for our full preview. KRG


THIS WEEK

InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

13 - 19 January 2012 convince Apollo that a couple with a love so uniquely profound should be returned to the living world. German stage director Christof Loy has given the production, which received excellent reviews in Aix-en-Provence, a modern, witty and rather dark twist by presenting the story through the eyes of a child. Apollo is a black-suited, collarwearing cleric, Euripides’ Thessalians modern children holding toys, and Jupiter a chat-a-box uncle. The set too is distorted through youthful eyes with exaggerated proportions, glimpses of mum and dad’s bedroom, and an attic full of memories and spooks. The happy ending is unexpectedly tipped into trauma when the child’s joy at the characters’ reprieve from death is cut short by the realisation that we are all destined to eventually die. The delivery of the baroque music is central to the success of Alceste, and in Denmark this has been entrusted to the Concerto Copenhagen with its dynamic conductor Lars Ulrik Mortensen at the helm. The role of Alceste is performed by Mireille Delunsch, one of today’s most celebrated baroque specialists, while American Gregory Kunde is cast as Admetos. With such an exciting collaboration of musicians and creative minds, Alceste promises to be a unique performance of a rarely staged opera. A fitting start indeed to a year that will no doubt see the old stage brought to life. CATHY STRONGMAN

Rare reprieve for Greek classic Alceste

Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, 1055 Cph K; starts 17 Jan, ends 6 Feb, performances at 20:00 on Tue, Thu, Jan 21, Jan 25, Jan 27, Jan 31, Feb 3, Feb 6; tickets 95–795kr; www.kglteater.dk THE FIRST performance to grace the old stage in 2012 will be a coproduction of Christoph Willibald Gluck’s little known opera Alceste, which this winter is being staged by the Royal Danish Opera, the Festival d’Aix en Provence, and Wiener Staatsoper. An opera that many will admit to never having heard of, it was first performed to a Viennese audience in 1767 before a heavilyrevised version with a French libretto by Leblanc du Roullet premiered in Paris on 23 April 1776. It’s this French version (with Danish subtitles) that the Copenhagen audience will have the rare opportunity to see. During the course of the opera’s three acts a touching love story unfolds in which Alceste, the wife of King Admete, makes an offer to Apollo to sacrifice her life to save that of her husband. Distraught Admete pursues his wife to the gates of the underworld and, having failed to convince her that he should take her place, follows Alceste over the threshold. At this moment of death Hercule steps in to save the day, suspending time long enough to

The cuddly-looking quartet’s last Danish appearance was as Roskilde Festival headliners

Metal giants will flex their muscles at intimate Vega show Mastodon

Store Vega Monday 20:00; 350 kr; www.vega.dk www.mastodonrocks.com

P

rior to the release of the 2011 album The Hunter, fans of the American metal band Mastodon could largely be split into two categories: those who preferred the more straight-head crunch of the band’s first three albums, and those who preferred the more spacey, progressive sound of 2009 album Crack the Skye. Following The Hunter, the fan base was further split between those that thought it was the best work of the Atlanta quartet’s career and those that

thought its shorter songs and more polished sound equated to a sell-out. The marked difference in the band’s sound throughout their career provides ample fodder for online metal sites, where fans bicker endlessly on which version of Mastodon is the best. But those who don’t care about such silly distinctions and merely want to get their faces blasted off by one of the biggest acts in metal would be well advised to shake off their winter doldrums and head out to Monday’s concert. The last time Mastodon touched down on Danish soil, it was to play the Orange Scene at last year’s Roskilde Festival. There, they put all criticisms that they weren’t legitimate festival headliners to rest with a hard-charging, growling twilight set. This time around, they’ll be play-

ing the much more intimate setting of Store Vega giving fans a unique chance to see what Alternative Press called “one of the all-time great hard-rock groups” and Rolling Stone dubbed “the greatest metal band of their generation” up close and personal. Opening the show will be Portland, Oregon based metal band Red Fang, which AllMusic described as a mix between Black Sabbath and the Melvins. Formed in 1999, Mastodon’s first four albums were all concept albums of sorts based on the four classical elements: 2002’s Remission around the theme of fire; 2004’s Leviathan on water via the classic novel Moby Dick, 2006’s Blood Mountain on earth and, well, climbing a mountain; and Crack the Skye on ether (along with Rasputin

and Tsarist Russia thrown in for good measure). While this may all sound pretty deep, the concepts are rather loose and the music can definitely be enjoyed on its surface level without searching for deeper, hidden meaning. On The Hunter, things got simplified a bit, with no real overarching theme to speak of, just 13 shorter, more polished tracks that unfortunately tend to blend together a bit. By teaming up with producer Mike Elizondo, best known for working with hip-hop acts like 50 Cent, the band raised more than a few eyebrows. And although the sound of The Hunter isn’t as brutal as their earlier records, nor as tripped-out as Crack The Skye, elements of both can still be found throughout. And the album’s standout tracks ‘Black Tongue’,

‘Curl of the Burl’, and ‘The Sparrow’ leave no doubt that Mastodon is at the top of their game. Of the group’s four members – bassist Troy Sanders, drummer Brann Dailor and guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher – all but Kelliher take turns on vocal duties. While many songs feature growling/screaming vocals, others are much cleaner and border on (gasp!) actually singing. The mix of sounds ensures that Mastodon fans of all stripes will hear what they came for.

FRIDAY 13

The Freudian Slip + Echo Me + Nelson Can Rust; 20:00; 50kr The Danish two-piece The Freudian Slip have found relative success working the Copenhagen scene promoting their unconventional brand of percussive rock. Also performing will be the one-man army Echo Me, aka Jesper Madsen, a Copenhagen-based singersongwriter with a penchant for turning his emotional quirks into catchy folk tunes.

popularity, the evening felt a little like an impromptu performance at late-night house party. Performing his audience favourite ‘Cecilia’ as the second song, most of the crowd were singing along word for word. He even stopped singing at one point and let the audience carry on for him. Afterwards he gratefully said “Så snyggt, så fint” (So nice, so good). It’s obvious why Dybdahl is so popular in Denmark. His deep and melancholic sound matches the Danish winter mentality spot on. But he still managed to lift the crowd’s spirits through church-like hymns that significantly lightened the mood. For me, the night’s highlight was ‘From Grace’, a song that totally blew me away. All of Store Vega was quivering with the soft sound and he ended it in a minor key that led perfectly into the next song ‘New York City’. When he played ‘Pale Green Eyes’, it sounded as if he had managed to sneak in a boys’ choir as he captivated the audience completely. Following the song, he said his goodbyes and stepped off the stage. No-one, however, was

entered the balcony just as Thomas Dybdahl struck his first chord and an instant, collective cheer rang out from the audience. For some, this was a first encounter with the folk singer, but there was no doubt that the majority of the crowd were being reunited with their beloved Norwegian neighbour. As a singer/songwriter, Dybdahl has mastered the art of storytelling. When he noticed that people at the back were talking amongst themselves, telling their own stories, he kindly told them: “If you have any questions, just ask.” That was an appropriate beginning to what was a very personal concert. In between songs, Dybdahl answered questions from the audience and shared stories with his fans. Dybdahl was in no rush, taking his time between songs. Despite Dybdahl’s increasing international

Reforming after a decade-long hiatus, the five-piece have made appearances at a number of international festivals over the past couple of years and have also released a greatest hits compilation of their most epic tracks from their 12 studioalbums, as well as a new album, Ghosts From The Past (2011). As the album name suggests, little has changed about their style of music (and dress) since the ‘80s. Emblematic heavy metal rock tunes delivered by long-haired rockers who have pledged their lives to the genre. DvdN

They will be releasing their fifth studio album, The Papercut Chronicles II (2012), later this month – which includes the hit ‘Stereo Hearts’ featuring a guest appearance from Maroon 5’s Adam Levin.

The Norwegian felt right at home among his Danish fans

ready to let go of him just yet, so the crowd kept singing the song until he came back. Although he quickly returned to the stage, sadly he was never able to catch that same intimacy. He played a couple of acoustic numbers, including an instrumental number that felt a little flat and anti-climactic. All in all, the Norwegian put on a steady concert for his Dan-

ish friends. He did play a couple of songs that I wasn’t all that familiar with, but I was never lost or not enjoying the concert. Dybdahl is able to establish an intimate connection with his audience, which reciprocates by displaying their own special connection to his music. aviaja bebe nielsen

Playing a set tonight will be Copenhagen-based Swedish artist and DJ, Anika Lori – who also works closely with Kødbyen’s flourishing art gallery V1. Playing an eclectic DJ-set that promises to dig up sonic relics from America’s southern country music tradition, it’s a step above your typical house music night. Never a dull night, Bakken is the heart beat of Copenhagen’s hip Kødbyen club scene, attracting hundreds of party goers week in, week out. Always a good idea. Jakob Millung (DJ)

Lille Vega; 21:00; 125kr The New York four-piece founded by Jospeh D’Agostino borrowed their band-name from a quotation used by Lou Reed to describe the sound of the Velvet Underground. Hardly an incarnation of the Velvet Underground, the New Yorkers tuck into the ‘90s for their inspiration, spinning catchy American-tasting teen rock tunes. The opener from their debut record Why There Are Mountains (2009), ‘And The Hazy Sea’ is a good introductory number to their riff-heavy signature sound. This is a good way to start off an early weekend. DvdN for those living local not wanting to brave the winter cold for little more than a short stroll. Always good fun on a Saturday, there’ll be a good turn out whatever the weather.

Culture Box; Sat 23:00; 100kr

Headlining Culture Box’s birthday bash tonight will be perhaps Berlin’s biggest celebrity in dance music, Michael Mayer. The co-owner of the colossal Kompact Records and a major figure on the global dance scene, Mayer is a frontrunner in the industry, perpetually pushing the frontiers of dance music as an idol to party-goers. Also playing a set will be the long-serving DJ and producer Margaret Dygas, whose fresh interpretation and markedly thought-provoking compositions have aided the development of underground dance scenes in London, Berlin and New York over the years. Culture Box’s birthday is a night when you can reboot your system and ready yourself for all tomorrow’s parties. Daniel van der Noon

GOING UNDERGROUND

05:00AM: WELL, here I am, rolling on the floor again, microphone in hand at Jule Distortion, while Santa Claus is beat-boxing in his leather G-string, asking me if I fancy going back to his place an offer I can only decline since Lapland is a tad far away. As a matter of fact, it was only this morning that I’d told my kids that Santa was too old and sick to make it this year and had sadly croaked. Not quite yet, or so it seems. Rewind to 21:30PM: I casually put down another smashed acoustic guitar, while the 30 plus unexpected guests are getting gently hysterical at this art opening that is so underground that we are all slowly, but surely, turning into mole rats . “Wow, I really dig the way you played ‘Dancing Queen’ in a depressed Johnny Cash kinda way,” says Skildpade Suppe (that’s ‘turtle soup’ in Danish), my dear siamese cousin, handing me two pills: one red, one black. “Well, the red one will ...” I interrupt him and promptly swallow them both as I religiously put down smashed electric guitar number six, telling myself that I just happen to be stuck in another vortex. “Okay, ladies, there will be a bus picking us up at the end of the street within seven minutes,” I hear myself shout to no one in particular. “This French dude is so full of it ... What the hell is he talking about?!” “Five minutes from now” “Could this guy be serious, after all?” Eleven people believe that I might be so, or just enough to give it a shot to the end of the street.

Are you mermen or what?!” “Have you noticed the 20 degrees difference from last year?” asks the weatherman who got lost on his way. “Yeah, whatever; c´mon guys!” I urge them. I know that Lars, the driver, will not wait an extra second. It is quite a spectacle to see them all put their gear on in the street, while still wondering. Then, there it is, in all its resplendent glory: the legendary raver BUS, glowing like a million supernova, magnificently roaring, just as if Neal Cassidy were behind the wheel, Ken Kesey giving psychedelic orders, Bill Burroughs controlling your dreams, and the ghosts of James Brown and M J moon-stepping all over your subconscious. We are stuck in between several packs of blondes as improbably beautiful as they are inebriated, grooving with such an iron determination - a careless abandon that the bus is just BOOMING with relentless beats and Scandinavian pheromones ! I can see the disbelief in my new friends´ eyes. The driver hands me an envelope (that I will find two days later). It says: “This is real, this is Copenhagen: magic happens here, especially when you least expect it.” On our way to the final party, we hit so many bars and clubs, the bus finally leaves without me. That´s when I hear Søren Kirkegaard and Hans Christian Andersen ask for my CPR number, duly check it and announce, in unison: “You´re next onstage.” As a Santa in bondage gear hands me a microphone, I start to scream and get rolling.

WHAT ARE palm trees doing in a Nørrebro neighbourhood? The tropical trees have appeared in this northern climate thanks to collaboration between the arts group Superflex, the architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the German urban space design group Topotek1, and local residents to build a new public park, Superkilen. Superkilen officially opens on July 1, but city dwellers can already walk through it, play on its playground, and enjoy the colourful atmosphere of this new public space. From the palm trees to a giant black octopus, Superkilen is not your everyday city park, as you might have guessed. This, however, is no surprise considering its creators. Superflex became internationally acclaimed for art projects like Free Beer, an open source beer recipe, and Flooded McDonald’s, which indirectly questions corporate responsibility for climate change by flooding a perfect replica of a McDonald’s restaurant. BIG has made its name with imaginative architectural projects that explore sustainable material use and social interaction design. Projects include the VM Bjerget, Mountain Building, a mountain-shaped, luxury apartment building in Amager, which has been awarded numerous architectural prizes, including the top award for housing design at the World Architectural Festival in 2008. Topotek1, based in Berlin, specialises in the conceptual design of public urban areas. Together they polled local residents of one of the most ethnically-diverse and socially-troubled parts of Copenhagen to create a design that sees Superkilen divided into three sections: the red square, the black market, and the green park.

These items were either bought and brought to Denmark or recreated on a 1:1 scale. Residents also asked for increased greenery. On their website, Superflex describes the park as: “A sort of surrealist collection of global urban diversity that in fact reflects the true nature of the local neighbourhood - rather than perpetuating a petrified image of homogenous Denmark.” Each colour-coordinated section of the 750-metre long area has a specific focus. The red square, painted bright red, orange, and pink, has been designed as an extension of Nørrebrohallen, the sports hall at the beginning of the park on Nørrebrogade. Between Nørrebrogade and Mimersgade, the focus is on athletic recreation and an open-air public market, with benches from Brazil and Iran to sit on and chat with friends. The black market, the centre of Superkilen, is a place for neighbours to meet

at chess tables, barbecue grills, the octopus playground, and the palm trees, which came from China. The ground shifts from red to black with white lines when you move into the central section of Superkilen. From the black market, park visitors go into the green park, which will be the final section to be completed. An entirely green area with rolling hills, trees, and plants, even the paved walk and bike area will be painted green. The green park, which ends at Tagensvej, is still brown, waiting for spring to be planted with the planned foliage. You can wait until July for the official opening, or you can visit Superkilen now to see this radically colourful example of urban public space design. Walking through the red square and the black market, families and neighbours are already swinging on the swings from Iraq or sitting and talking on the benches from Iran and Brazil. When the park opens this summer, Superkilen will reflect the diversity of this Copenhagen neighbourhood. What at first appears to be a mismatch will in fact be the start of a discussion about the rapidly changing face of Danish public life. BONNIE FORTUNE

BY NICHOLE ACCETTOLA

AS A GENERAL RULE, it’s wise to bring a little gift to the host/hostess of a party, as a way of expressing your gratitude. The most common gifts include flowers or chocolates, or maybe even a bottle of wine. But it wasn’t until recently I had ever received such a unique gift from my guests: a large piece of salted and boiled meat called rullepølse. Our guests had driven from their home in Jutland complete with a few choice chunks of their neighbour’s locally-acclaimed homemade rullepølse. Rullepølse, usually made from pork breast, is rolled jelly-roll style until it resembles a large sausage, similar to Italian pancetta, and thus giving it the name which literally translated is ‘rolled sausage’.

In Denmark, rullepølse is eaten as a cold cut, served sliced thinly on rye bread. Smørrebrød queen Ida Davidsen features hers at her restaurant, with the addition of pickles, horseradish and tomato to create the trademark dish ‘Per Henriksen’. We opted for the less embellished route of buttered rye bread and raw red onion. And just one bite made us instantly understand how someone could become known for their infamous rullepølse – it was leaps and bounds from the prepackaged, preserved slices of leather one finds at the supermarket. Just yesterday, I decided to make my very first rullepølse. And with a bit of luck, I’m hoping it will taste half as good as the one we were given by our friends.

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! MM

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, 1th@1th.dk; 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

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. biomio.dk 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 .

Danish Rullepølse 2 kg veal breast* 5 tbsp coarse salt 8 bay leaves 10 black peppercorns 1 tbsp dried thyme 1 bunch flat leaved parsley, leaves only Place the veal breast flat on cutting board. (It’s worth noting at this point that I work as a kitchen chef on a daily basis, making food for many, some of which don’t eat pork, thus my decision to utilise veal instead of pork. However, pork breast - svineslag in Danish - can easily be used instead.) With long chef ’s knife, butterfly the breast horizontally, so as to make it half as thin and twice its length. Place salt, four bay leaves, peppercorns and thyme in coffee grinder and blend to fine sand

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. 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, thaiflavours30@gmail.com; www.thaiflavours.dk 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 & info@sagaqueen.dk; www. sagaqueen.dk 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. 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. The brasserie also serves main courses like fried duck breast with wild mushrooms. TDF

consistency. Season meat completely with salt. Place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for one to two days. To cook rullepølse, chop parsley finely. Place meat on cutting board, put a strip of parsley down middle of meat, longwise, and roll meat up tightly like a jelly roll. Bring five litres of lightly salted water to a simmer. Add remaining four bay leaves. Use butcher’s twine to secure meat, and add to hot water. Simmer two hours. Remove meat from water and set in dish with heavy, flat weight on top, for example a cutting board topped with a heavy pot. Allow the meat to cool completely, remove from press, remove twine and slice thinly. Bon appetit!

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. It’s a haven for meat lovers and is popular among its clientele for the meaty mixed grill. AJ

raita. A great size, I was satisfyingly full but not bursting. My companion was brave enough to make his way through the Chicken madras curry – a great one for the spicy lovers out there. Drinks-wise we enjoyed a good Indian beer, and with our meal a very creamy mango lassi. No Indian meal is complete without a great lassi! Sulman has also proudly created a great juices menu saying: “It’s actually better to eat the food with a juice rather than a beer.” The most recent edition to the drinks menu is the Indian wine

SUNDAY BRUNCH

IN ANCIENT INDIA, under direct orders from the king, his subjects were instructed to eat Indian food to increase their libido. This ancient prescription still holds true today but there’s also a few other reasons why dining on Indian food - particularly from Bindia - is good for your health and your taste buds. Upon entering most Indian restaurants, your attention is drawn towards Bollywood music videos or the aroma of stodgy butter chicken. But upon entering Bindia we found ourselves in a modern, sophisticated Indian restaurant featuring saffron-coloured candle holders and pictures of sikhs. The only blindingly overt Indian reminder was the gold-plated column made of real gold – 10 carat to be precise. Owner Amer Sulman’s love of great Indian cuisine led to the birth of Bindia in 2003. The playful name reflects his devotion to great Indian food – ‘bindi’ refers to the dot that a man places on his beloved’s forehead representing love and prosperity. Sulman desires to give diners an experience of Indian food that transcends traditional notions. A large focus of his is to serve up Indian food that’s healthy and fresh. Nothing here is deep-fried or stir-fried, and no butter or animal fats are used. Even the raita (yoghurt salad) has only 1.8 percent fat. While it may be easy on the hips, it’s also fantastic on the lips. Our starter kicked off our appetite. Little bread pockets with mixed fillings of mint, coriander, parsley and chilli provided a plethora of zesty flavours - just what you always wanted Indian food to taste like but never got! These were accompanied by grilled aubergines encompassing small pieces of Indian cheese. Alongside this were six fantastic chutneys, ranging from pomegranate to mint to spiced carrot. One of the defining factors that sets Bindia apart from other Indian restaurants is the flexibility of the menu. You choose your curry separately from your meat, so the typical Butter chicken can just as easily become a Butter lamb. There’s also the platter option - created to fit the popular European way of presenting food. My platter was the Wellow curry with lamb and may I (as a proud Kiwi) add that the lamb was of New Zealand origin. There was a small portion of rice (which is all you need), a great piece of naan and some fresh

– a thought perhaps if you’re feeling adventurous. We finished our little Indian expedition with some extremely creative Indian desserts. Whilst a very nice mango crème brûlée was on offer, we chose the carrot cake and the milk cake. These are not what you think. The carrot cake is made of raw carrots ... just sweeter. But the real taste of India came through in the milk cakes – small dome-shaped pieces of rich, sweet, sugary goodness. Indian desserts are traditionally heavy, so Sulman has created lighter versions

and kept the portion sizes small. Some fresh fruit on the side made all of this go down quite a treat. It’s a shame that Bindia wasn’t around at the time of India’s ancient kings, as I’m sure they would have told their subjects to feast there. Nevertheless it’s here now in Copenhagen, providing some of the healthiest, innovative and sharp-tasting Indian cuisine in Denmark.

Has its moments, but loses its place too often MARK WALKER

This Must Be The Place (7)

Dir: Paolo Sorrentino; Fra/Ita/Ire dramedy, 2011, 118 mins; Sean Penn, Frances McDormand

Premiered January 12 Playing nationwide

C

HEYENNE (Penn) is a retired, middle-aged rock musician, whose appearance is clearly modelled on Robert Smith. He floats about his giant Dublin residence and the local shopping centre like a ghost searching for purpose. He exists on the royalties from a successful recording career that spanned several decades and although he hasn’t performed in over ten years, he still wears his trademark lipstick, eyeliner and backcombed hair-do. Despite an idyllic marriage to a local firefighter (McDormand), Cheyenne is tortured by the suicides of two local fans who were inspired by his songs to take their own lives. He is locked in a permanant state of creative and emotional stagnation until he receives word of his father’s death. Having not spoken to his father in over 30 years, he promptly returns to his birthplace of New York. There he learns of his father’s life quest: to track down a Nazi officer from the concentration camp where he was imprisoned. In his father’s death, Cheyenne’s life finds purpose - he picks up the trail where his father left off. The film is of fine pedigree, boasting two of the world’s finest actors in Sean Penn and Frances McDormand; a soundtrack from the legendary David Byrne (who also puts in a guest appearance - and provides the film’s title, which is taken from a Talking Heads track); and the director of Il Divo who is widely considered to be primed for ‘modern master’

Penn wonders if he might have gone a little overboard in his attempt to hide his grey hairs status. But yet, to quote the film’s protagonist, “Something is very wrong here”. It’s difficult to locate the poison responsible for these uneasy feelings, not least because there’s much to recommend the film: Penn and McDormand play wonderfully together, depicting a touching relationship of perfect harmony; Cheyenne himself is a charming character who, despite being nauseatingly softspoken and frustratingly slow-moving, commands our sympathies. Comprised of two distinctly separate halves, Ireland has moments of jaunty visual comedy punctuated by

sobering melancholy. Once Cheyenne arrives in the States, the tone becomes decidedly less silly and more earnest. The contrast is jarring - Ireland presents us with the wacky sight of ageing rock star Penn, comedically howling his way through a racquetball game and giggling at his wife’s tai chi session, but once Stateside we’re looking at a slideshow of atrocities committed at concentration camps. There’s a sense that these subjects belong to different genres, that perhaps the filmmaker is not fully engaging with the emotional gravity of these disparate elements in his film. Yes,

the filmmaker is betraying his central character - that in fact we are being served a sneakily conservative perspective on society’s non-conformists and that such behaviour as Cheyenne’s is something one should ultimately grow out of. One suspects Robert Smith would tell Sorrentino where to stick his condescension. Even more disturbing is an attempt to equate Nazi war crimes with the guilt of a rock star. Such narrative conceits make for great aesthetics and even work on a thematic and symbolic level but in reality they cease to function and feel sloppy and insubstantial.

they form a (almost) coherent whole that is both entertaining and at least superficially engaging, but the problem lies not just in these narrative elements making awkward bedfellows, but also in the lack of sincerity within the elements themselves. For example, we never get a sense of Cheyenne the musician. In a faintly embarrassing scene with David Byrne (playing himself ), Cheyenne praises Byrne as a true artist and dismisses his own discography as “depressed pop for depressed kids, made solely for the money”. That’s all we get. In fact, it frequently feels as though

D

O YOU KNOW what a ‘mad lib’ is? It’s a short story with many key words replaced with blanks that you are meant to fill in. The creators of this film seem to have taken a mad lib for horror and just filled in the blanks

randomly: fill in the horrible creature’s strength here, fill in its weakness there. The film does not make a whole lot of sense and one leaves the theatre feeling confused and frustrated. The Darkest Hour is an alien invasion action/horror movie. Two best friends have created a social networking website that they plan to present in Russia in order to get financial backing. Why Russia, of all places, is unclear. Like many horror movies, at the beginning everything seems hunky dory until it all turns apocalyptic. Of course you know what’s coming because the beautiful, mostly unknown actors are having such a good time. The only positive about this

film is it has a polished Hollywood look. The special effects and cinematography are professionally done. But unfortunately that was the only positive. There was minimal character development and minimal explanation of the aliens’ minimal dialogue, and minimal 3D effects. Speaking of which, there doesn’t seem to be a good reason why the film was made in 3D, other than to attract a wider audience. There is a trend to make more subtle 3D films after Avatar, but it was just unnecessary for this film. The action was not memorable and it wasn’t scary (which is saying something since I scare extremely easily). You may have thought this would be a science

fiction movie. But the science in the movie is laughable. The more that was explained, the more the audience was rolling their eyes. The film gives you a valuable lesson in the importance of the script writer: you should have a good one, which this film clearly didn’t! The depiction of the characters and the decisions they made was perhaps the worst side of the film. There was no apparent motivation behind the actions of the characters. This is a universe that rewards overly optimistic and, frankly, stupid people In summary, the movie was predictable and predictably bad. LIZ DELLAPENNA

13 - 19 January 2012

New this Week Serbian Cinema

Husets Biograf, Magstræde 14, cph k; Playing: Fri, Sat 19:00, Sun 17:00; tickets: both films 50kr; http://husetmagstraede.dk/ Made in Serbia and The Life and Death of a Porno Gang act as significant representations of the new wave of Serbian cinema. Both directed by Mladen Djordjevic, these films are characterised by their attempts to provoke and shock through violent images. Made in Serbia portrays the Serbian video porn industry by presenting four life stories of domestic porn actors. Unlike their western counterparts, these people work in the porn industry in order to survive and obtain basic life supplies. The Life and Death of a Porno Gang follows young director Marko who makes an acquaintance with a porn director and begins creating films with him to show his anger towards the society he lives in. EM

Book Your Tickets 50/50 Dir: Jonathan Levine; US dramedy, 2011, 100 mins; Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Bryce Dallas Howard The ability to get laughs out of an illness so devastating as cancer is difficult, and getting them without being cheesy or forced is a true work of genius. KE

The Adventures of Tintin 3D (7) Dir: Steven Spielberg; US action, 2011, 107mins; Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis 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 makes it a modern story for a modern audience. JS

Drive (15) Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn; US thriller, 2011; 95 mins; Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan Refn manages to build extraordinary tension before igniting brief outbursts of violence. Sheer brilliance! KE

Money Ball (3) Dir: Bennett Miller; US drama, 2011, 133 mins; Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Chris Pratt Moneyball is a baseball movie first and a drama about the underdog second. With a ‘home run’ performance from Pitt, Moneyball is his potential award winner of 2011. KE

Avoid like the Plague Another Happy Day Dir: Sam Levinson; US drama, 2011, 119 mins; Ellen Barkin, Ezra Miller, Ellen Burstyn Another Happy Day combines some of the stock elements of a family film with an honesty and viciousness that brings it up a notch, but only just. EM

In Time (11) Dir: Andrew Niccol; 2011; 109 mins; Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy While the cast’s looks may be hot the action scenes are not – most are blatantly mundane at times. As one reviewer said “In Time fills its dynamic, sprawling universe with about as much character and drama as a halfhour game of Sim City.” EM

Larry Crowne (3) Dir: Tom Hanks; US comedy, 2011, 98 mins; Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Sarah Mahoney Do not expect Forrest Gump or Pretty Woman. Congenial is the word for Larry Crowne, but it’s as flat as an ironing board. EM

New Year’s Eve (3) Dir: Garry Marshall A tepid, shallow and predictable farce full of trivial problems. If it’s feel-good fluff you’re after, here’s enough for a whole year. KG

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I Dir: Bill Condon; US drama, 2011, 117 mins; Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner Strictly for teenagers of the female variety. EM

Also Playing Contagion (15) Dir: Stephen Soderbergh; US thriller/drama 2011, 118mins; Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Jude Law The film functions more like a bird’s eye view - rather than an intimate human account - leaving the audience uninvolved and distinctly uninfected. MW

The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo (15) Dir: David Fincher; US thriller, 2011, 158 mins; Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer Something about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo jars. Whether it’s the fact that all of Stockholm unaccountably speaks English, or that Fincher’s version has grown up in the shadow of its model – an excellent work – is hard to say. Although not destined to become a modern classic, this will no doubt excite many. KRG

The Help (7)

Real Steel

Dir: Tate Taylor; US drama, 2011, 137 mins; Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard Set in the 60s Mississippi, the film has a political backdrop, but despite pulling on the heartstrings, The Help is entertaining and enjoyable. ED

Dir: Shawn Levy; US action, 2011, 126 mins; Hugh Jackmam, Dakota Goyo, Evangeline Lilly It’s sometime in the near future and robot boxing is all the rage. Charlie Kenton (Jackman) is a former boxer now eeking out a meagre living boxing old robots wherever and whenever he can. Of course Real Steel has a fairly predictable plot and an ending so cheesy that you are liable to choke on it. However, you find yourself caring not only about the human characters but the robots too. Real Steel was always going to be compared to the Transformers franchise, but luckily coming in the wake of the atrocious Transformers 3, Real Steel looks like the real deal. KE

Kill List (15) Director: Ben Wheatley; UK Thriller, 2011, 95 mins; Neil Maskell, Michael Smiley, Myanna Buring, Emma Fryer The film’s greatest weakness is that it appears to have dropped off the cinematic ugly tree and hit most branches during the fall. There’s grim violence aplenty, from which poor aesthetics provide no respite. Performances are the film’s saving grace, lending more charm and credibility to a script that deserves far less. MW

The Inbetweeners (11) Dir: Ben Palmer; UK com, 2011, 93 mins; Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison, Joe Thomas The Inbetweeners traces the relentless efforts of four sixth form boy-men to get themselves “knee deep in clunge”. As with many TV to film transitions the tendency can be to adopt a more benign approach to its previous incarnation –thankfully the film retains much of its signature crudity but it does lose something by attempting to give us more. MW

Sherlock Holms: A Game of Shadows (11) Dir. Guy Ritchie. US action, 2011, 129 mins; Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Noomi Rapace Ritchie gives you what you expect here - lots of action, fight scenes and raw adrenaline chopped up and slowed down depending upon his mood on the day he was editing. He also has an excellent ear for soundtrack and the sets of ye-olde London and Paris are really very good. There isn’t anything to really bring it all together though, but you’ll still have fun with this one. KE

Grimm

spor t THE W OF EEK

TV3+, Mon 22:00

GRIMM (TV3+, Mon 22:00) has an interesting premise, if little else. It’s a bit like The Da Vinci Code, but instead of Jesus, the main character, a cop from Portland, Oregon, is descended from the Brothers Grimm and accordingly has to solve a whole load of murders that mirror the fairy tales, which is handy when it comes to solving them, although he looks a bit lost in the ones the brothers didn’t write. The show debuted in October 2011 and has been more popular with viewers than critics. The same was always true of The Jerry Springer Show, and he’s back with more populist tosh, this time a dating show, The Baggage (TV2 Zulu, Sat 20:05), in which the contestants (the rules make you think Jerry is making it up as he goes along) all bare their souls as the con-

tents of their suitcases – think skeletons in the closet – are revealed. No doubt the closets of the schoolchildren stars of the British reality TV show Educating Essex (SV2, Sun 20:00) are already full, but that’s standard form for the country’s loudest region. While it has a certain charm, it’s galling to watch youngsters whose main aspiration in life is to appear on The Only Way is Essex. In a strong week for docs, The Interrupters (DR2, Sat 16:00 & SV1, Tue 22:00) looks at how three former criminals try to protect the Chicago streets they once terrorised; the title of acclaimed two-parter Cinema’s Exiles: From Hitler to Hollywood (DR K, ep 1: Fri 00:55 & Tue 15:45, ep 2: Thu 21:00) pretty much speaks for itself; Let

Elsewhere, we’ve got a truckload TV3 +, Mon 22:00 Grimm of season openers, some old, some new: the fourth season of Big Love (SV2, Fri 22:45); the third season of The Wire (SV2, Fri 23:40); the third season of Lark Rise to Candleford (SV1, Wed 16:10), which is about the plebs but aimed at the toffs; and the first ever episode of quirky Alaska-based series Northern Exposure (SV1, Thu 23:35), way back from 1989.
