BEN HAMILTON

THERE ARE NIGHTS when I wake up in a cold sweat dreaming I’m watching an endless loop of David Lynch’s Inland Revenue or Lars von Trier’s Dogville. They might not be the longest films I’ve ever seen at the cinema, but they sure felt like it. But then again, I’ve never sat through a Wagner opera. Can you even imagine what it must be like to watch something lasting nearly six hours. That’s like spending a whole day at work fidgeting. This week’s preview of his opera Parsifal (see G3 for details) even includes quotes from composers who were dragged to watch this thing as a kid. One of them, Max Reger, watched it aged 15 and spent the next two weeks crying. I’m not surprised, I don’t think I would ever speak to my parents again either. It’s funny though, but we wouldn’t bat an eyelid about attending an event that lasts six hours, providing it involves copious amounts of alcohol.

For example, Floor Wars (see G9), over two nights, lasts a staggering 15 hours, and conversely it’s the performers who spend most of the night fidgeting. Apparently they talk as well. To be honest I started getting lost when the ‘Red Bull BC One winner’ was mentioned, and gave up trying to understand once I read about the ‘1vs1 Bboy Battle’. Boy-on-boy action is where I draw the line. Instead I might try out the St Patrick’s Day festivities – even if I don’t walk with the parade, it should be easy to find (see G8 for details, plus G10-11 for a map of the route) – after all, it’s normally on a weekday and half the fun’s over by the time we finish work. Nevertheless, the participation numbers in the Threelegged Race (see G8 for details) grow and grow every year, despite the 2008 edition taking part in a blizzard, as does the final amount donated to charity. In a city where many events struggle to survive, it continues to go from strength to strength. One of the keys to this success, I guess, is making sure it doesn’t last six hours, although it did for one unlucky pair in the aforementioned blizzard!

There was something very yoga-esque about the promo video, although this shot has more of an S&M quality

Living Room

Dansehallerne, Pasteursvej 20, 1799 Cph V; ends March 24, daily performances at 20:00; tickets: 60-130kr; 3329 1029; www.teaterbilletter.dk, www. dansehallerne.dk WHEREAS AMERICANS only have one word for living room, the Brits have many - all depending on your social class. While the upper classes would call it a drawing room (derived from the word withdrawing don’t you know, when the women would withdraw to the living room after their ‘supper’, leaving the men to light their cigars, drink their brandy and generally screw up the world), the working classes call it a lounge (“What ... you live in an airport?”). It is left to the middle classes to simply uses living (or sitting) room. Coming from The Netherlands, however, this all sounds a bit old-fashioned. My grandma would tell me about the ‘Sunday room’, which was only used on Sundays or to receive guests. Kids weren’t allowed at all. But besides all that, Living Room is also the name of the performance group Recoil’s latest dance production. Combining dance

and video animations, it might sound like a weird combination, but this is exactly what choreographer Tina Tarpgaard has done. Talking to InOut, Tarpgaard describes ‘her’ living room as “a room in motion, evoked not just by the dancers but also by an almost organically living video scenography”. The floor and walls start to move and the space begins to breathe. The collaboration with software artists isn’t new for Tarpgaard. “The core of this recent work is defined by the close relation between the choreographic material and motion sensitive video graphics,” explains Tarpgaard on Recoil’s website. “This very intriguing combination of expanding the motion of the body by choreographing light and darkness as well as the dancers, has been an exciting challenge to find a balanced combination between software art and the performer on stage. Through dance, live video and electronic sound, we create performances that aim to explore technology as an equal and interactive partner to the performing artist.” In 2003, Tarpgaard and composer Pelle Skovmand formed performance group Recoil, with the intention of establishing col-

Penned by the actors and director Barry McKenna, it takes place in a pub during a football match between England and Denmark. Confronted by a power cut, two fans (Ian Burns and Andre Jeffers) switch their attention to the lovelife of the barman (Adam Brix), teaching him how to woo his Rosalind in Shakespearean style, with a little help from the audience, which according to McKenna, is “a crucial element” in any Shakespeare play.

laboration between artists across genre and borders. They have since 2003 produced stage project in Denmark and abroad. Ole Kristensen and Jonas Jongejan are Recoil’s software artists. “We work with tracking technology and the intricacies of interactive software on stage because it enables us to create dynamic places and environments that depend on human presence,” adds Kristensen on Recoil’s website. “The dance should need the technology and vice versa to be interesting.” Dancers Nelson Smith, Siri Wolthoorn, Rumiko Otsuka and Jonas Örknér crawl over the floor and bite each other’s elbow (yes, really) while following the video animations on the floor. According to Tarpgaard, “this close relationship between body and space and how they mutually control or influence each other is a fascination Recoil has pursued from many different perspectives. Living Room is about the powerful and the powerless. A visual story about breaking free from pre-destined roles and respectively giving and taking space.”

I cried for two weeks and then became a musician,” Max Reger, the German pianist and composer, later recalled. Celebrities had flocked to the opera’s premiere in 1882, and the music world was flooded with commentary on Wagner’s newest work. Some critics saw the work as a weakening of Wagner’s powers, but many musicians found something of the sublime in the score. Renowned composer Gustav Mahler wrote about the performance in letter to a friend in 1883: “I can hardly describe my present state to you. When I came out of the Festspielhaus, completely spellbound, I understood that the greatest and most painful revelation had just been made to me, and that I would carry it unspoiled for the rest of my life.”

Initially Parsifal was blocked from all stages outside of the German town of Bayreuth, where Wagner and his wife held complete control over the décor, costume and stage direction. When other theatres were finally granted permission to stage the entire opera at the end of 1913, over 50 performances were given at opera houses in Europe from January to August in 1914. Keith Warner, the artistic director at the Royal Danish Opera, has re-imagined Wagner’s masterwork, and his version of the dramatic production will be on view for the first time in Copenhagen. The sound of the spectacle rests on several experienced Wagner performers, including renowned tenor Stig Fogh Andersen in the title role of the knight Parsifal and Stephen Milling as Gurnemanz, the eldest knight of the Holy Grail. Usually cast in the role of the villain, Swedish baritone John Lundgren takes the role of Amfortas, the king of the Holy Grail, for the first time. Warner has been a passionate devotee of Wagner’s operas since the age of 14, when he saw Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. “Since then I’ve constantly read about Wagner, seen his works and thought about them, and the amazing thing is that my interest has never waned – indeed, as time goes on I become more and more interested,” said Warner in

DEN KONGELIGE OPERA

Quite simply life-changing

G3

After five hours and 30 minutes his face started to disappear

an interview before directing The Ring Cycle at Covent Garden. This will be Warner’s last season as artistic director in Copenhagen, having submitted his resignation in January due in part to dramatic budget cuts. In writing Parsifal, Richard Wagner took his inspiration

from the 13th century epic poem Parzival, written by the German knight and poet Wolfram von Eschenbach. Ostensibly focusing on the quest for the Holy Grail and the knights of Arthurian legends, Wagner’s loose adaption draws on ideas about faith, compassion and eastern philoso-

phies such as concepts of Buddhism. Flower maidens, squires, a magician, a wild woman and a holy spear all make up some of the key elements of the dramatic storyline. As part of the audience of that first production, Claude Debussy thought the characters and

plot ludicrous, but wrote that musically the opera was “incomparable and bewildering, splendid and strong”. He added that “Parsifal is one of the loveliest monuments of sound ever raised to the serene glory of music.”

The King is alive! (Sort of ...) Elvis Presley in Concert

Forum Sat March 24, 20:00; 315-415kr www.forumcopenhagen.dk www.elvis.com

M

ICHAEL JACKSON, Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur and many other artists have managed to release best-selling albums from beyond the grave. However, not to be outdone, Elvis Presley shows why he is still the King, as he is the first artist ever to tour the world – post-mortem, that is. “A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It’s my favourite part of the business: live concerts,” the King said a press conference prior to his record-breaking Madison Square Garden shows in New York City in 1972. During his lifetime, Elvis only performed in the United States and in three Canadian cities, leaving heartbroken fans all over the world. With the help of modern technology today, however, the King has been gracing international audiences and making the dreams of countless fans come true. Starting in 1998, the ‘Elvis Presley in Concert’ phenomenon has mesmerised millions of people worldwide and has earned a Guinness World Record as the first live tour headlined by an artist who is no longer living. And so, 35 years after his untimely death, Elvis is finally going to perform in Copenhagen. This unique multimedia event offers the closest opportunity for Danish fans to experience Elvis the Pelvis up close and personal. The concert is estimated to last two hours and features a 16-piece orchestra, a number of Elvis’s original band mates, former cast members, and the king of rock ‘n roll himself – or at least, some digitally re-mastered live footage of him. Most of the footage used in the show comes from the material shot for the MGM films Elvis: That’s The Way It Is (1970) and Elvis on Tour (1972).. Mega Elvis fans will be thrilled to know that footage from the legendary 1973 global television special Aloha from Hawaii, via Satellite also found its way into the show. So, in short, the concert is made up of Elvis’s finest performances from the biggest concerts of his career. This is exactly the period that ‘Elvis Presley In Concert’ intends to celebrate, as it projects the King at his very best, both physically and performance-wise. Also, it doesn’t hurt that these films were originally recorded in multi-track, enabling the producers to drop all the sound from the footage, highlighting the sweet vocals recorded by Elvis’s microphone. All the music heard in the concert production is performed live, with the obvious exception of Elvis’s vocals. Audiences and band members alike have claimed to forget that Elvis is in fact, not present, as the illusion is so life-like, satisfying Elvis cravings worldwide. So get ready to hear your favourite Elvis tunes, from the rock ‘n’ roll classic ‘Hound Dog’ to the love anthem ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’. Whether you are a Elvis fan or not, this might just be your only shot to find out first-hand why he was deemed the greatest entertainer of the 20th century. Do not miss this experience!

Global; 21:00; 90kr Active since the mid-‘80s, this Moroccan orchestra is one of the most influential groups in north Africa, helping spread Amazigh and Berber music across the world stage, sparking something of a renaissance for the indigenous music of Morocco. Embracing a blend of traditional instrumentation with banjos, electric guitars and gongs, the group produces energetic, exotic and celebratory melodies that brim with gusto. This will not fail to capture the imaginations of those on the prowl for something more than another western rock group this Friday.

Review James Morrison ★★★★★★

March 7 Store Vega

W

HEN JAMES Morrison first rose to critical acclaim in 2006, many must have wondered how a man of such talent had not been discovered earlier. When he played at a sold-out Store Vega, the crowd must have been flummoxed by what exactly they had just witnessed. At his best, the Rugby-born musician was as soulful a voice as any you’re likely to hear, and even at his worst, he was teetering on the edge of sheer musical brilliance. Morrison stepped onto the scene along with a sizeable backing band and proceeded to quench the crowd’s thirst with the prolific ‘Beautiful Life’, a well-placed opener that set the standard for the night. After a slowish start that entranced more than it entertained, his signature track ‘I Won’t Let You Go’ took the concert to a whole new level five songs in, as Morri-

Whether you’re nursing a hangover, taking time out from writing your thesis or just think that it’s about time you embraced a little culture, this rendition of some of the finest classical music ever composed is not to be missed no matter what your musical preferences.

Koncerthuset; 20:00; 300kr Hailed as one of the most important bands to have emerged out of America during the ‘90s, no band has re-sculpted the fundamental components of country music in such an original way as the Nashville five-piece. Their unclassified brand of countryfolk – a hybrid of multiple genres borrowing from avant-garde jazz, soul and post-rock – captures the absurdity of modern living, using blithely imaginative lyrics paired with emotionally evocative melodies. Their visit to Copenhagen marks the release of their eleventh studio-record, Mr. M (2012) – another poetic addition to their rich discography.

Huset i Magstræde; 21:00; 100kr The Californian singer-songwriter offers an ambient, moody slant on folk-rock. Emerging at the turn of the millennium with his debut, Not the Way E.P. (2002), McCombs released two records last year, Wit’s End and Humor Risk. Both records fit the description of humble compilations of well-written ballads laden with vivid imagery drawn from the laconic tales buried deep within McCombs’s dreamworld. The latter record ups the ante with stronger riffs steadily rocking the boat beneath his wistful rhymes. A born performer, this is a must for any musicians reading.

Fans and critics alike have hailed the lively singer’s style as being reminiscent of Stevie Wonder, albeit infused with elements of confessional lyrical singer/ songwriter traits – an alternating pattern that was consistent throughout the show.

But this fresh-faced three-piece have appeared in NME and played at some of the capital’s most prestigious venues, translating their experimental musical ideals into glamorous electro compositions that piece together Hot Chipesque synths, refined chintzy ‘80s disco beats and polished vocals.

A mixture of electro-pop and happy-golucky hip-hop mixes, it’s assured the dancefloor will be bursting with Copenhagen’s young and trendy crowd. Bakken is a staple club in the stylish Kødbyen district – it’s a good distance away from the mainstream clubs nearer the city centre and often thought of as Copenhagen’s grimy answer to Berlin’s clubscene – and never fails to provide an authentic night out on the town.

However, as always, we get back to the music. “Sooo, what would you call this style of groove?” After 30 seconds of hazy hesitation, the answer comes back in slow motion: “Balkanic reggae dub with a dancehall vibe to it,” comes the definite answer. “And what is the title of such a miss smashed potato?” do I dare ask/

GET READY to shake what your mamma gave you because Floor Wars is here. This dance-based event over two days will sort the winners from the losers. Floor Wars aims to inspire both the newbies, as well as the professionals, of the break dance scene to network, exchange ideas and dance off against each other. Based around a 3 vs 3 breakdance battle, this event is arranged according to what the organisers call the ‘Great 8’ principle. Eight world-class crews will be challenged by eight other crews that are selected in a qualifying round prior to the main battle. The fantastic thing about this is that any crew therefore has an opportunity to enter the competition. The great eight crews include Denmark’s own world famous Natural Effects, who over the years have delivered some legendary performances at Floor Wars. Every time they have entered they have made it through to the finals, as was the case in 2006, 2007 and 2008. In 2006 they won first prize. Continuing to improve over the years, they will enter this time round with the Red Bull BC One winner, ‘Neguin’ from Brazil.

G9

His euphoria at finding his contact lense was shared by all

for this event and will also showcase smaller side battles that are being held, such as a ‘popping battle’ and a ‘toprock battle’. The timetable for Floor Wars 2012 is action-packed. Beginning on Friday night at Lille Vega, the doors will open at 7pm, and from 8pm onwards in the Lille Vega concert hall there will be the R16 Scandinavian Qualification 1vs1 B-boy Battle. The winner will go to Korea where they will compete in the R16 1vs1 B-boy Battle. Also from 8pm onwards in the Lille Vega Lounge there will be the 1vs1 All Style Battle Just For Laughs Qualification. The winner will go to Montreal to represent Denmark in the Just For Laughs All Style Battle. From 11:30pm onwards, the event heats up with the pre-party. Come Saturday, the action only gets bigger at Store Vega. The doors open at 4pm, whilst at 5pm in the main hall there are the eliminations for the 3vs3 battle. At 6pm in the foyer there is the ‘toprock bat-

tle’, whilst at 6:30pm in the main hall the ‘footwork battle’ will occur. At 8pm the main battle will begin. The judges for the 3 vs 3 battle will be Dyzee from Canada’s Supernaturalz crew, Buckingham from America’s Flexible Flave, and Nono from France’s Vagabond Crew. Nearly as important as the dancers themselves are the DJs that will be responsible for spinning the tunes. Like the crews, these DJs come from all around the world and include OneUp from France, Uragunn from Italy and Holland’s Panic. Floor Wars is organised by Breakpoint, a hip-hop community that formed to practice and develop the various dance forms of hip-hop such as breaking, electric boogie and locking. Breakpoint caters for Denmark’s best dancers, as well as absolute beginners. As well as Floor Wars they also do shows, arrange jams and offer dance-lessons. JESSICA O’SULLIVAN

I DON’T KNOW everything about my husband, and frankly, I don’t want to know everything. We’ve been together eight years, and until recently I never knew that he was a big fan of biscotti. Big. I don’t even remember how the subject came up. He went on and on about the virtues of the crunchy moon-shaped cookies, and then came the whammy of all whammies: “But you’ve never made them for me.” It was like an arrow through the heart. At this point I think I should mention that this is a man who will not touch peanut butter with a ten-foot pole. This blows my mind, and not in a good mind blowing kind of way. To

the like-minded ladies out there who are about to enter a more serious, committed phase of your relationship, ask yourself: does he like peanut butter as much as I do? If not, you might want to think twice. But I digress. Never one to back down from a challenge that involves sugar, chocolate, and butter, I made biscotti. Boy did I ever. I mixed that dough as if my life depended on it. I shaped and baked rectangles of dough, sliced it, and baked it again. The result was pure deliciousness … and a husband who gobbled down slice after crunchy slice. Now if only I could get him to try one with some peanut butter spread on top.

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Cph N; 3535 7535; four-course menu 450kr, seven-course 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’ll find in the heart of Nørrebro. And it’s 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; 1,250kr per person; www.1th.dk 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; five-course menu with wine 850kr, other dishes 75-215kr; www.reinwalds. dk 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

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 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 SushiTreat restaurant 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 .

Chocolate Biscotti

(Adapted from www.farmgirlfare.com)

150 g chopped dark chocolate (or chocolate chips) 115 g unsalted butter 2 large eggs 225 g sugar 1 tsp vanilla 500 g all-purpose flour 80 g unsweetened cocoa powder 1½ tsp baking powder 1½ tsp sea salt (plus more salt for sprinkling SET OVEN to 180 °C. Melt butter and chocolate together, and then set aside. With a hand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 2 minutes. Add vanilla and chocolate-butter mix and combine. Mix in flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, just until combined. Add extra flour if dough is too sticky.

Oysters & Grill Sjællandsgade 1B, 2200 Cph 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 gives 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

16 - 22 March 2012

Divide in half. On a lightly floured surface form each half into a log. Place logs on a parchment lined baking sheet. (Sprinkle with sea salt if that’s your thing.) Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove and let cool 20-30 minutes. Reduce oven to 140 °C. Slice the rectangles into thick slices. Bake 15 minutes on one side and 15 minutes on the other side. Cool on wire rack. Note: if you like sweet and salty, sprinkle your rectangles with a generous amount of sea salt and press lightly into the dough. Also, these biscotti benefit from slightly overcooking. In other words, if you end up with slices that are a bit dark (ever so slightly burned) you will still be in excellent shape. The well-baked taste is a perfect complement to dark chocolate and with biscotti - the crispier the better.

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 Dim 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; threecourse menus 119kr, 139kr & 159kr pp; www.dalaman.dk 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

Pubs The Irish Rover Strøget 46, 1161 Cph K; Open daily 10:00-late; www. irishrover.dk You won’t find a more childfriendly pub in the whole city. From the fish and chip expat family nights at 17:00 on the last Friday of every month, to enjoying the Sunday roast (lamb, all the trimmings, just 99kr, kids portion for 58kr), they are always welcome. There’s live music Thursday-Sunday (22:00-late), the kitchen is open from 10:00 until late every day - serving a burger meal with pint for just 120kr - the pub caters to all sports fans, there’s a pool table in their back room where you can smoke, and upstairs there’s a new lounge area, which is the perfect place to relax with a view over Strøget. BH Brew Pub Vestergade 29, 1456 Cph K; restaurant open Mon-Sat 12:00-22:00, pub open MonThu 12:00-24:00, Fri-Sat 12:00-02:00, Sun closed; 3332 0060; three-course lunch menu 155kr; www.brewpub. dk 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 buy 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


G13 Silence in the library: they’re speechless about the food FOOD & DRINK

InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

16 - 22 March 2012

EVER SINCE we officially stepped into the season of spring, and the sun slowly started to show its pretty face, I have been tripping on my toes to fulfil my inner craving and stop by Paludan Bogcafe. Paludan Bogcafe, with its refreshing twist of being both an eating place and a secondhand bookshop, has permanently established its indispensability in the hearts of every Copenhagener. In other words, people wait in line to get a place because it is constantly stuffed (so it is worth making a reservation, either via email or over the phone; they also have a direct email address if one wishes to contact them for a particular book). Whether it is inside during winter, or outside at one of the way too few tables during summer, it does not make a great difference. What does make all the difference, however, is the story of how they began. Founded as a mere bookstore/publishing company, the place has since transformed into a hip place where people go to satisfy their intellectual as well as material hunger. Entering through the golden doors, you firstly think that you’ve stepped into a private library, albeit with some remarkable exceptions. Because in this library you are allowed to eat, drink, and talk loudly. The café is divided between two different floors: the lower is mostly for people who are having a quick lunch, while the higher can be booked for study or a meeting place. Nevertheless, the rustic English furniture is perfectly executed on both levels, and the concept follows a clear red line that immediately yields a certain ‘feel good’ factor. Open for brunch, lunch, and afterwork drinks, Paludan Bogcafe manages to keep it real, both when it comes to the English style, but also when it comes to the unique variety of exciting dishes. Their menu offers the perfect recipe if you are in deep need for a break from your busy everyday life, or if you simply feel like indulging in a relaxing atmosphere. Offering an extensive menu that includes everything from fair-trade coffee, brunch menus, and sassy salads, to large sandwiches, warm dishes, and exquisite desserts, the hard part is the actual choosing. However, my favourite has to be the Caesar Salad – a classic that just never dies. Having tasted a lot of different Caesar Salads, Paludan’s Bogcafe is without a doubt the best place to go if you want a salad that looks as good as

Reservations are advised, which kind of makes it a book-essential eaterie for more that one reason

it tastes. With its fresh ingredients, the salad comes with chicken, parmesan cheese, croutons, romaine lettuce, and pine nuts. Unlike so many other places, their many salads come in large portions served with home-baked bread and butter, so the possibility of leaving the place with a nagging hunger is close to zero. Another one of my favourites has to be the ‘Today’s Special’. Changing every day according to the available products of the current season, the dish of the day leaves you with the possibility of making a spur-of-the-moment decision. By

simply asking at the counter what the daily dish consists of, one is able to walk into a retro café without any expectations whatsoever – an impulsive choice that makes the visit not so much a trivial praxis of eating, but an experience that is worth remembering. Additionally, it is also crucial to mention that the intoxicating experience of dinning at Paludan Bogcafe comes with the pleasant twists that while you eat you can easily pick any book from the shelve and read in it. If you happen to like the book, you can even buy it.

The books come in a variety of prices: the cheapest start at 10kr, while the most expensive can cost around 200kr. The food, however, is also very affordable, and ranges from 79–119kr per dish. Mixing the old with the new, Paludan Bogcafe has managed to create a unique atmosphere where colleagues, friends, students, and families can gather to enjoy the company of each other and books. If you have not tried it yet, do not hesitate – book a table now.

G18 The best of British: original, visceral and disquieting FILM

InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

16 - 22 March 2012

MARK WALKER

Shame (15)

Dir: Steve McQueen UK drama, 2011, 101 mins; Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, Nicole Beharie

Premiered March 8 Playing nationwide

F

rom the off, even before the film itself begins, Shame has created a rather unique air about it. It’s clearly a film about sex, but the marketing indicates an oblique approach that has little to do with titillation. London-born director Steve Mcqueen’s previous film (his debut) was similarly adroit in trumpeting its subject matter. Entitled Hunger, the film won great critical praise and numerous awards including a BAFTA for best newcomer. This followed McQueen’s accolades in his previous incarnation as fine artist, whose video works earned him commendations such as the Turner Prize in 1999. Shame, then, represents a celebrated and unique voice, embarking on that difficult second record. Brandon (Fassbender) is a relatively successful, mid 30-something working in New York. Something of a lone wolf, Brandon is perpetually single. This suits his lifestyle perfectly. His sexual appetite is unbridled, whether bedding dates and prostitutes, flirting, masturbating or facilitating any of the above, his actions are always sexually motivated. However, as an early comparison between Brandon and his obnoxious boss (James Badge Dale) demonstrates, he’s far from the slobbering slave to his loins one might associate with the term ‘sex addict’. Brandon is refined, charming and possessing of a quiet intensity that despite drawing people to him, threatens to devour him whole. His insatiable desire for sex is

The director’s cut of ‘Shame we can’t see what’s under the table’ is out next year forcibly put on hold when his younger sibling Sissy (Mulligan) comes to town needing a place to stay. Their volatile relationship threatens to usurp the calm of Brandon’s controlled environment. Her presence complicates the regularity of Brandon’s self-prescribed treatment for his addiction. Several elements out of his control, Sissy’s arrival, the discovery of certain on files on his work computer and a particularly challenging date - all conspire to send Brandon spiralling into his own private hell. Michael Fassbender is the soul and centre of the entire film. Present in every

scene, he tempers his cool exterior with well-judged humour and glimpses of vulnerability, allowing us access to this curious character. He performs fearlessly, freely exhibiting the gamut of emotions and physical demands that the part requires of him. Aesthetically he reminds one of a darker, weightier version of Ewan McGregor - emanating a constant sense of unpredictability and danger. Here he concretes his reputation as a rising force to be reckoned with; the buzz about him is wholly justified. It’s easy to imagine ten years from now he will be considered heavyweight, to be men-

tioned in the same breath as Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. His most powerful scenes are shared with the increasingly impressive Carey Mulligan (An Education, Drive). McQueen prefers to shoot them in long, unbroken takes that draw you in - allowing electric performances and and absence of cuts to lull you into the room with them. It’s an intoxicating two hours: a heady mix of suppressed emotions and unlimited desires. We’re invited to experience the inner life of this man - a surreal window through which to experience the world of this proud but damaged creature who

prowls the nighttime streets of New York City like a vampire. Ultimately the journey becomes purposefully suffocating, with McQueen and Fassbender skilfully conveying Brandon’s sense of entrapmentand inability to function outside of his addiction. Shame is a claustrophobic drama of intensity and urgency. It will make many recent films seem trivial and tame, a strange and unique beast indeed. It’s mature drama, bravely tackling complicated subject matter for those looking to experience something different. It’s original, visceral and disquieting - in the way only cinema can be.

Beware! Don’t miss The Ides of March The Ides of March (3)

Dir: George Clooney; US drama 2011, 101 mins; Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti

Premiered March 15 Playing nationwide

he Ides of March is the 15th of March, according to the Roman calendar. Its historical significance comes from it being the date Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate. Supposedly, a seer predicted the death of

Caesar by this date. Shakespeare famously depicted this event in the play Julius Caesar. The film The Ides of March is aptly named, for it depicts the death of idealism in American politics through the more metaphorical backstabbing that takes place. The story is adapted from a play by Beau Willimon. The film follows the descent of Stephen Meyers (Gosling), an idealist working on the presidential campaign of Mike Morris (George Clooney). The story begins with the preparations for the Ohio Democratic primary. From there, we see how he interacts with his various colleagues and opponents. Initially, the film seems too sleek. Every character says just

the right, charming thing. It’s almost disappointing how perfect everyone seems. But then the plot takes a few unexpected turns, which creates intriguing conflicts. There are many parallels within the film that illustrate the hypocrisy of politics and people in general. The parallels range from the visual opening and closing of the film to what people say to one another. The dialogue is very well written and should be paid close attention to. The achievements of this film lie with its superb writing and star-studded cast. The situations created within the film are all very real possibilities. The actors all deliver very strong per-

formances. The film is completely character-driven, so this point is important. The cinematography is also well done; the shots are well chosen and thought out. The film is ultimately very effective at delivering its message. The film represents politics very well. From the outside, politics and politicians appear too perfect. Politicians know just the right thing to say and have to look the part. But as we delve deeper into the story, we realize that not everything is, as it seems. Eventually it comes down to what one values the most. Are politics worth the sacrifices and compromises required to succeed? ELIZABETH DELLAPENNA

Also Playing

Hugo (15)

The Devil Inside (15)

J. Edgar (11)

Dir: Martin Scorsese; US drama, 2011, 128 mins; Asa Butterfield, Chloë Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law A wondrous blend of fantasy and mystery that will appeal to adults as well as children. MH

Dir: William Brent Bell; US horror, 2012, 87 mins; Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth A woman becomes involved in a series of unauthorised exorcisms during her mission to discover what happened to her mother, who allegedly murdered three people during her exorcism. It’s a tired take on an old formula that loses steam even before its atrocious ending. MH

Dir: Clint Eastwood; US drama, 2011, 137 mins; Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Judi Dench; playing on Mon in Grand Teatret Even 137 minutes isn’t nearly enough to encompass roughly 50 years of one of the most interesting figures of the 20th century. At the same time, 137 minutes is much too long for a film that never digs deep enough to uncover anything profound. KE

Pater (3) Dir: Alain Cavalier; Fra drama, 2011, 105 mins; Alain Cavalier, Vincent Lindon Witty, urbaine and quintessentially French, Pater is a game two famous adult men play with the camera in an offbeat film closer to documentary than to fiction MH

The Grey (15) Dir: Joe Carnahan; US thriller, 2012, 117 mins; Liam Neeson, Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts A thoughtful, tough-minded little tale of survival and attrition that sets its sights a bit further than its firepower takes it. MH

Book Your Tickets Drive (15) Dir: Nicolas Winding Refn; US thriller, 2011, 95 mins; Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan Extraordinary tension ignited by brief outbursts of violence. Sheer brilliance! KE

This Means War (11) Dir: McG; US com, 2012, 98 mins; Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, Til Schweiger This Means War is about two spies who are close friends, and how they compete over the same girl. Directed by McG, this film shifts with random bursts of energy. The script is mediocre, and the settings are off. The only pleasure comes from watching Bronson and Captain Kirk fighting over Legally Blonde. MH

Project X (15) Dir: Nima Nourizadeh; US comedy, 2012, 88 mins; Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown At 88 minutes, the film manages to outstay its welcome, playing like an overlong episode of The Inbetweeners with 100 times the budget and none of the charm. It’s big, loud and pointless. It’s probably going to be massive. MW

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (11) Dir: Tomas Alfredson; UK/Fra/ Ger thriller, 2011, 127 mins; Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Ciaran Hinds, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Kathy Burke, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hardy Atmospheric and stylish yes, but this has to be the most un-thrilling thriller of recent memory. MW

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (15) Dir: Brad Bird; US action, 2011, 133 mins; Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Vladimir Mashkov, Lea Seydoux, Michael Nyqvist You really don’t care how impossible it may be, you just want to see more. KE

My Week With Marilyn (3) Dir: Simon Curtis; US drama, 2011, 99 mins; Michelle Williams, Eddie Redmayne, Kenneth Branagh It is rather difficult to portray an actress whose image is still so ‘alive’. Williams captures the innocence, flirtation and insecurity of Monroe very well, delivering a complex performance. However, Williams never seems to fully exude the sexuality of Monroe. That was the message of this film, that Monroe was different in real life than her worldwide image. Nevertheless, Williams lacks the natural sexuality that Monroe always projeced. ED

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (11) Dir: Stephen Daldry; US drama, 2011, 129 mins; Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Thomas Horn If you’re a moviegoer who enjoys having your heartstring plucked like a bluegrass banjo, this is the king of movie you will be gushing over this while drinking double mocha non-fat cappuccinos with your friends. KE

Safe House (15) Dir: Daniel Espinosa; US action, 2012, 117 mins; Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds If you’re a fan of good, dynamic directing, Washington’s darker, more menacing characters, and Reynold’s bruised face, you will like Safe House. DC

The Artist (3) Dir: Michel Hazanavicius; Fra/Bel dramedy, 2011, 100 mins; Jean Dujardin, Bernice Bejo, John Goodman, James Cromwell It’s difficult to see why this film is being championed so highly. Many will defend it by claiming that detractors are put off by a lack of colour, dialogue, explosions and other contemporary mainstays. But really their efforts would be better spent lauding Chaplin’s Modern Times or Murnau’s Sunrise. MW

The Iron Lady (3) Dir: Phyllida Lloyed; UK/Fra drama, 2012, 105 mins; Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Olivia Colman, Richard E Grant From the first frame there’s a growing awareness that our perceptions of this woman are being gently and skilfully manipulated by director Phyllida Lloyd and screenwriter Abi Morgan, so much so that regardless of your political persuasion you’d have to be resolutely stubborn or emotionally retarded in failing to be moved by this biopic. Nevertheless, Margaret Thatcher is full blooded; she lives and breathes before your eyes. This film belongs entirely to Streep. MW

The Descendants (7) Dir: Alexander Payne; US dramedy, 2011, 115 mins; Geore Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Amara Miller Despite the nominations, Clooney delivers a performance we’ve seen many times before. LD

G19

Sherlock Holmes: A The Woman in Black (15) Dir: James Watkins; UK/Can/ Swe horror, 2012, 95 mins; Daniel Radcliffe, Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer Radcliff is taking the scare level up a notch from the Harry Potter movies with this British ghost story, where he plays a young lawyer, who travels to a remote village and discovers a vengeful ghost. Horror movie enthusiasts might not find this to be the scariest of scary movies, but if you have a less thickskinned significant other this is the movie to watch. MØ

John Carter (11) Dir: Andrew Stanton; US sci-fi, 2012, 132 mins; Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong John Carter is enjoyable, but not memorable. Somehow it feels that Disney should stick to what Disney does best - animations - and leave live-action films to others. But if you don’t mind formulaic plot devices and only crave a bit of light-hearted entertainment, it’s a pleasant enough way to spend two hours. DC

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (3) Dir: David Gelb; US documentary, 2012, 81 mins; Jiro Ono, Yoshikazu Ono Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. It gives a penetrating look at traditional Japanese culture and is a tasty treat for sushi snobs. MH

Bobby Fischer against the World

spor t THE W OF EEK

DR2, Tue 21:00

A TORTURED GENIUS, a celebrity recluse, and antagonistic beyond belief – love him or loathe him, there were few chess champions as entertaining as America’s Bobby Fischer, whose 1972 defeat of Soviet grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavík captured the imagination of the entire world – not bad for something played on a small board with inanimate objects. The documentary Bobby Fischer against the World (DR2, Tue 21:00) provides no new revelations for those knowledgeable about the chess player to enjoy, but for the uninitiated, it’s a fascinating tale of one of the game’s finest ever players, who poignantly in 2008 died in Reykjavík, the scene of his greatest triumph, aged 64 – one year for every square of the chess board.

The revelations in Panorama’s Murdoch’s TV Pirates (BBC World, Sun 22:30) will be thin on the ground as well – or at least in terms of information that might shock you post-Milly Dowling. Phone hacking, bin rummaging and honey-traps – all so the nation could vegetate on their way to work without ever finding out where Darfur is. A bit like the characters in GCB. With a passable 56 rating on Metacritic, it’s about a former high school queen bitch, now widowed and returning to her teenage environment in her 30s. Elsewhere, donate cash to British charity show Sport Relief (BBC Ent, Sun 18:00); catch again the first episodes of British crime series Death in Paradise (SV1, Sat 21:30) and The Shadow Line (SV2, Fri
