As dynamic and varied as the Danish capital is, it isn’t the cheapest of cities. So when you get the opportunity to have an evening out courtesy of national broadcaster TV2, at a total cost of zero kroner, you shouldn’t grumble. Every year TV2 zulu takes cinema out of doors and puts it under the summer stars, with multiple screenings of (mostly) recent cinema for the viewing pleasure of grateful film lovers across the country. So find some quality company, grab your favourite tipple (beers and popcorn available on site), a cosy blanket and enjoy some of these gems:

Drive

Fælledparken, Cph Ø; Wed 15 Aug, 21:15 Søndermarken, Frederiksberg; Wed 29 Aug, 20:45 For my money, this is Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn’s best film to date. Ryan Gosling sparkles with pure iconic awesomeness as the stunt driver by day, getaway driver for hire by night. If you haven’t seen it yet, see it on this huge screen with a beer in hand and a toothpick to chew.

Tintin

Get ready to sit down in the park and watch Gosling drive about sporting gloves and a toothpick

This time the IMF team has gone rogue after being framed for blowing up the Kremlin. Strap in for a thrill ride from Pixar’s Brad Bird directing his live-action debut.

lated to ‘Bollevenner’ (F*ck Buddies) in Denmark. Justin Timberlake and his good pal Mila Kunis discover that bringing sexy back ultimately leads to complications.

Midnight in Paris

Total Recall

Ofelia Beach, Cph K; Wed 22 Aug, 21:00 Karrebæksminde , Roskilde; Sat 22 July, 22:00

Steven Spielberg’s animation/motion-capture mixture adaptation of Hergé’s classic adventure comic books. Like Indiana Jones, but shiny. Take the kids.

Neurotic New Yorker Woody Allen continues his European tour, following films in London and Barcelona with a Rome film out this year. This was his Paris (unsurprisingly) comedy from last year. Owen Wilson is an excellent addition to the long list of ‘Woody’ alter egos. I wonder if the prolific 76 year old will live long enough to cast his eye over Copenhagen.

The Descendants

Ofelia Beach, Cph K; Thu 23 Aug, 21:00 A land baron is forced to re-evaluate his life and re-connect with his kids after his wife is seriously injured in a boating accident. From the director of Sideways and About Schmit. George Clooney gives a career best and the screenplay won an Oscar. What else do you need?

Friends with Benefits

5-øren, Cph S; Thu 2 Aug, 21:45

5-øren, Cph S; Fri 3 Aug, 21:45 The original 1990 adaptation of the Philip K. Dick story. The Governator gets busy kicking ass on Mars, unsure if any of it is real or just memory implants. A classic slice of sci-fi and a timely reminder before the remake starring Colin Farrell hits screens later in August.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Søndermarken, Frederiksberg; Thu 30 Aug, 20:45 The latest offering from director Steven Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours). A brilliant young autistic boy becomes obsessed with finding the lock into which fits a key belonging to his father who died in the World Trade Center attacks. The Summerbio will work its way around the country, starting in Odense from the 11th of July and by way of Ålborg, Næstved and Århus, it arrives in Copenhagen for the entire month of August at various sites.

The title of this one was hilariously trans-

lows the adventures of Cassander, who lives alone with his beautiful daughter, Columbine, in old Copenhagen. Cassander’s servant, Pierrot, is a clown. Cassander’s adversary is Harlequin, a charming, masked bandit with empty pockets who loves Columbine and knows many wizards and fairies.

The Unfortunate Suitor

ends 26 Aug Magic is involved when Cassander tries to marry Columbine off to a man who isn’t Harlequin.

Pierrot’s Misfortunes

ends 5 Sep Cassander has chosen yet another suitor for Columbine, this time an old, wealthy man. While Harlequin is enlisting the help of a fairy, Pierrot is making life at home very difficult with his antics.

Pierrot in Dyrehaven

ends 29 Aug Singing girls, two Pierrots and a dancing horse are just some of

the strange things to be found in this pantomime about a visit to Dyrehaven. Mrs Sorensen picks a fiancé for Columbine, but as always, Harlequin disrupts any plans with the help of another fairy.

Harlequin Skeleton

Aug 21-Sep 19 Working as a waiter is not the best way to win Columbine’s hand, so Harlequin seeks advice. After a complicated plan involving doctors and dressing up as a skeleton, the curtain falls when the two lovers are reunited with the help of an adventure fairy.

Cassander as a Cooper

Sep 6-22 No more fairies – this time, a forest troll helps Harlequin and Columbine get together. SM

When faced with writing about Cafe Retro, which is located in the centre of Copenhagen, doing so in a manner that is enjoyable to read while staying truthful is a difficult task. That is mainly because there are two sides to Cafe Retro – the packed place where students come for a beer and a fair share of chit-chat, and the side that offers quiet enjoyable shade from a burning Sunday afternoon sun so rarely seen in the streets of this city. That first instance happened just a few days after I had moved to Copenhagen. I did not know any streets, no idea about the means of transportation and I knew literally no one in the city.

couch-surfing requests had left me with an invitation to the weekly gathering of the town’s couch-surfing travellers, which that week just happened to be held in this place. I thought it would be boring. To me, all bars and cafes in the old city are the same: overpriced and tacky. But as is always the case, my preconceptions never have anything to do with reality. After a confusing start, triggered by some people at the door asking for donations of some sort, I managed to locate the menu consisting of a short list of the basics, handwritten in chalk above the bar. The feeble looking list offers bottled or draught beers with prices ranging from 30-50kr, or if you feel like wine the choice is between the 50kr glass and the 120kr bottle. More potent spirits are also available, and the designated drivers have not been forgotten either, with a choice of the most familiar soda drinks, warm drinks and either hot or iced coffee. Some snacks are also available but you truly don’t need anything else. The place might be one story high but the feeling is very cosy. The whole interior decoration complements the exterior design of the building very well – it is clearly not its prime, but it feels full

Retro Bar’s cosy interior more than makes up for the delapitated look it has from the outside

of stories and looks like an open invitation to get more familiarized with the place – a simple endeavour. With the menu being so simple, I just had to go and find the crowd of strangers I was due to meet. The place felt like a maze and I couldn’t make out the odd looking door hiding the staircase to the top story. The top story is regrettably not as cosy as the street level floor. Heavy, cumbersome wooden chairs replaced the well-cushioned sofas, and the matching tables bring back thoughts of German wurstles served at the countryside during a beer festival. But even though the menu doesn’t include any sausages, beer was a

given! Soon our group grew as more and more people started filling up the place - which is open until 1 am on Friday and Saturdays When we began sitting in pairs on a single chair, a bright Californian among us opened the door to salvation: we would not feel crowded anymore, as right behind us was the event room, which can be booked for any purpose without cost, and we were fortunate enough to find it vacant. Our 15-square- metre haven provided us with a well earned feeling of privacy away from the human chaos found elsewhere. On Sunday I returned, alone and not expecting com-

pany. I was just yearning for those relaxing sofas and a coffee table to rest my weary feet on, and perhaps indulge myself with an ice-latte, the specialty this summer for 30kr. There was free Wi-Fi and they even had a laptop I could borrow from the bar. I also managed to strike up a nice conversation with the volunteer bartender, who enlightened me about the people raising funds at the entrance, and how the entire profit from the place is sent to countries in need like Sierra Leone or Tanza-

2012 ROSKILDE FESTIVAL WRAP-UP InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

13 - 19 July 2012

SCANPIX / MARTIN ROSENAUER

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band ★★★★★★ July 7, Orange

S

WHEN YOU SPEND nearly a third of your booking budget on securing one of the biggest acts on the planet, you expect that act to deliver. And when it came to Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, the Roskilde Festival clearly got what it paid for. But the 2012 Roskilde Festival was much more than the epic three-hour concert by The Boss. In addition to providing the venue for big names like Björk and The Cure, the festival’s iconic and revered Orange stage also hosted a late afternoon dance party with Amadou & Mariam and gave a handful of national acts the chance to play what must be every Danish performer’s dream gig. Meanwhile, outside of the expansive Orange, amazing performances were to be found in every direction, whether from the dreamlike performance of Maïa Vidal at the Gloria stage, the ‘electro vacilón’ of Columbians Bomba Estéreo at Cosmopol, the enchanting Swedish sisters of First Aid Kit at Odeon, or the evening of hipster heaven provided by Bon Iver at Arena. And, of course, that’s just the music. Anyone who has been to the Roskilde Festival will attest that the motto ‘More than music’ is apt. Whether participating in the annual nude run or getting your hair cut by an asylum seeker, there is always something to do at Roskilde. Here is The Copenhagen Post’s look back at a successful 2012 Roskilde Festival. Much more can be found online at cphpost.dk/roskilde2012.

Yes, there were a lot of other shows – a lot of great shows – but the 2012 Roskilde Festival will be best remembered for The Boss

OME ROSKILDE concerts you see because you like the act, you’re familiar with their material and you want to see how it transfers live. Some you see because you’ve heard good things and they’re the best option playing at the moment. Other times, you stumble upon unknown quantities and give them a chance to catch your interest. But some shows you see because you know you need to be there. You know it will provide an unforgettable experience and that there is no way you will miss it. Such was the case Saturday night for The Boss, who, let’s face it, has been expected to carry this year’s Roskilde Festival since his booking was revealed in November. I’m no Bruce Springsteen mega-fan, but as someone who grew up in middle America in the 1980s, Bruce is etched into the fabric of my life. I’ve heard his music since a little kid in Iowa, played by my parents, played in trailer parks, pick-up trucks, diners. Bruce’s working-class American is me, my family, my roots. More than a bit surreal then to find myself, just three days after a lonely 4th of July spent away from home and on what happened to be my father’s 60th birthday, to be belting out ‘Born in the USA’ amongst a sea of over 60,000 Europeans. Yet, there I was, and for three beautiful hours I wouldn’t wanted to have been anywhere else. Mere seconds after taking the Orange stage with an impassioned cry of “Hva’ så, Roskiiiiilde?”, Springsteen had the massive crowd wrapped around his Jersey finger. Launching into ‘No Surrender’, Springsteen and the E Street Band never looked back as they proceeded to deliver a concert bound to hold a special place in the Roskilde Festival history books. Given the marathon length of the performance, I took the opportunity to venture to various corners of the Orange scene in an effort to gauge how fully engaged the massive crowd was in the Boss’s performance. As Springsteen told the crowd that the E Street Band “came thousands of miles to be here tonight” and repeatedly asked: “Can you feel the spirit?”, it was clear that even all the way out to Orange’s periphery, they could. Hell, I even spotted the finance minister, Margrethe Vestager, enjoying the show. Adding to the excitement and historic feel of the evening, Springsteen and the E Street Band were soon thereafter joined on stage by Philadelphia hip-hop crew The Roots, who had delivered their own triumphant performance on Orange earlier in the day. The appearance also made for a late-night American television reunion of sorts, as The Roots, who perform as the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallen, were temporarily sharing the stage with longtime E Street drummer Max Weinberg, who for years was the bandleader for Late Night with Conan O’Brien. With the music of my homeland filling the air, I began making the rounds checking in on all of the American flags I saw flapping in the sky. Thinking I might find a fellow misplaced countryman, I gave up after speaking with three successive Old Glory-waving Danes and settled in for the show’s tremendous third act, a run through Springsteen’s most classic and iconic songs. ‘Born in the USA’ provided perhaps the largest crowd sing-along I’ve ever been a part of, followed by ‘Born to Run’ and ‘Glory Days’, at which point the sheer magnitude of what I was seeing – a classic performance by one of America’s most iconic performers at one of Europe’s most tradition-filled music venues – caused my eyes to get a bit misty. It should be noted that, at age 62, Springsteen is something of a freak of nature. When not singing his heart out or strumming away on the guitar, he spent the show running around stage, greeting fans in the pit (even pulling a somewhat reluctant ‘Little’ Steven Van Zandt down with him at one point), standing on a piano and doing an age-defying backbend. That he had to periodically sit on the speakers and lay on stage to catch his breath was more than understandable. Shortly after a tribute to former E Street saxophonist Clarence ‘The Big Man’ Clemons, who passed away in 2011 and has had his place filled admirably by his nephew Jake, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band led the audience through a rousing performance of ‘Twist and Shout’, a perfect cap for a night that managed to transcend both time and place.

ETH DITTO, the charismatic frontwoman for American band Gossip, revealed her love affair with Denmark Friday evening on the Orange stage. “I love this place with its cute houses, cute cars, and cute little bicycles!” she proclaimed. Ditto often thanked her crowd with the words “tusind tak” and sporadically instructed her adorers to “Skååååål!” The big and bold singer bounded onto stage barefoot, wearing a clingy black dress that showed off her ample bosom. She moved around so much that at one point one of her bra cups was fully exposed. “I just have to fix my dress,” she quipped. Ditto even wiped her mouth and sweat using the part of the dress that fell around her décolletage. Ditto progressively lost control as the set list whittled down. Her dark

NYONE who’s ever seen Björk perform live knows that she is the sort of artist who can virtually do no wrong. She’s in a league of her own – in fact she often seems to live in a planet of her own design. To say that she is innovative and beyond gifted is an understatement, but when it comes to Björk, words never quite seem to be enough. Sunday night’s performance at the Orange stage made that crystal clear. Dressed in a black, shiny dress that resembled robotic snakes wrapped around her body, completed with a variation of the iconic orange wig that goes with the style of her 2011 album Biophilia, Björk certainly looked the part. Accompanied by an army of Icelandic choir-girls and a string of musicians, the performance was hauntingly flawless. There was an organic feel about the entire show. She portrayed a magical world of an almost cleansing and spiritual nature. There were plenty of effects, both visual and musical, and for the duration of the concert, the audience was in Björk’s territory and not the other way around. She put on a show worthy of a musical sorceress and did not even try to cater to the audience. There was no walk down memory lane, no string of classic hits and nearly no dialogue between the audience and the shining star. There was only Björk being Björk, and that was enough. As was to be expected, she per-

you, thank you) were nearly the only words that came out of Björk’s mouth. She introduced the band and choir, right as she returned to the stage for a two-song encore. The only other time she really talked was right before the very last song of the evening. She asked if it was okay that she spoke English and urged the audience to sing along. ‘Declare Independence’, from her 2007 album Volta became the last song played at the Orange stage this year. It was a powerful delivery, with the choir going crazy in what looked like an alien party on stage. Having seen her legendary performance at Orange stage in 2007, I confess that I have mixed feelings about Sunday

night’s show. It was strangely paradoxical to be bored in the presence of greatness, and there were moments where I wished she would drop the Biophilia act and went all out like she did five years ago. But as a Björk fan, I think you have to be willing to let her take the lead and fulfil her own vision. She is a headliner of the highest calibre and a true artist. Her performance was a statement to her ability to reinvent herself and at the end of the day, she did was she does best – she was herself. And the audience got to journey through her wonderfully bizarre world.

blue and gold. They didn’t move much from that spot for the whole show, which had the potential to make the performance too static. But their band members, especially the dreadlocked drummer and the backup dancers, provided the necessary movement on stage. Their musical style mashes up funk, jazz, tribal song and pop, and the uplifting and joyous mood it creates makes people want to unleash their inhibitions and dance. By the time the group played ‘Africa’ off their 2008 album, Welcome To Mali, the audience was in the right frame of mind. In the pit, the crowd was dancing manically, with some clusters following the moves exhibited by the two groovy backup dancers dressed in matching orange, red and yellow outfits.

eye-makeup and bluntly styled black hair became increasingly dishevelled as the show went on. Ditto didn’t seem to mind though, and neither did the crowd. Her self-confidence and nonchalance was totally refreshing. Finishing the show with ‘It Takes Two’, Ditto climbed down a ladder mid-song and disappeared from the stage. Keeping the audience in a state of anticipation, about a minute passed before Ditto came out at the front of the stage barrier to shake hands and kiss the cheeks of her admirers.

HE CROWD was sparse when Amadou & Mariam first came onto the Orange stage, but it didn’t take long until their melodious West African music lured the masses into their clutches. Mariam Doumbia wore a neutral expression for most of the performance and while Amadou Bagayoko was more smiley, it is more than possible that the blind pair had no real perception of how many Roskilde revellers had come to see them play. After being introduced as a favourite fixture to the Roskilde lineup over the years, the duo from Mali –who have been deemed the first from West Africa to play blues-rock – were led onto stage by festival staff and propped in front of the microphones. Doumbia was wrapped like a present with a huge electric blue bow on the top of her head and Bagayoko was clad in complementary

“The last of the big-name headliners that Roskilde announced for this year’s line-up, Jack White was expected to deliver both star power and good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll at Roskilde’s most revered stage. The good news is that White, largely, delivered. The bad news is that Roskilde failed to do its part, as the sound throughout the concert was all too low.” JUSTIN CREMER SCANPIX /ANDREAS BECK

formed several songs from Biophilia – her eighth full-length studio album and the world’s first “app-album” in collaboration with Apple. ‘Thunderbolt’, ‘Moon’ and ‘Hollow’ were beautifully delivered. It was a pleasure and a privilege to take it all in and the songs had an almost divine energy to them. In fact, there was a Biophilia vibe throughout the entire concert, even when she performed songs from other albums. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought that she decided to play songs from only one album – quite an amazing feat, seeing how eclectic her music is, in actuality. The choir was an essential part of the performance and their voices were, for lack of a better word, heavenly. They complemented Björk in every possible way: musically, vocally and visually. They provided a beautiful, at times ominous, texture to the performance while somehow remaining in the background even when performing avant-garde choreography. Long-time Björk fans got to enjoy some of her ‘90’s work, including ‘Hunter’ from Homogenic (1997) and ‘Isobel’ from Post (1995). ‘One Day’ from Debut (1993), was Björk‘s first encore and it was one of the few numbers she performed without the full presence of her choir. Accompanied by only one instrument, Björk serenaded the audience in one of the evening’s many magical moments. She whistled quite a bit during the song. In pure Björk fashion, she was not the best whistler but her delivery left nothing to be desired. “Tak, Tak, Tak” (thank you, thank

Backed by two stone-faced female dancers and a three-piece band, Santigold rattled through an extensive set that went through a lot of the singles from her two albums. Santigold looked absolutely stunning, with neo-African prints dominating three costume changes. The three guys in the band looked like a cross between chickens and safari hunters. During ‘Hold the Line’, the dancers whipped off their tops to reveal black and white equestrian outfits, and swirled their ropes provocatively in the company of a pantomime horse. “I don’t want to ruin the moment, but it’s just two of my band members in there,”

wedish sisters First Aid Kit proved Saturday afternoon that headbanging has a place in the folk music genre. The Stockholm duo swung their long locks from side to side – and upside down – like woodland animals on the Odeon stage. The 3pm timeslot worked well for the group, as they could rouse the exhausted festival-goers into a decent state of consciousness, warming them up for another long night ahead. Romancing the crowd with their echo-y, country vocals, First Aid Kit mixed up their set list with older tunes like ‘Hard Believer’ and ‘Ghost Town’ from their 2010 record, The Big Black & The Blue, with a cover of Fever Ray’s

Santigold said. The night’s best moment was during ‘Creator’, when she invited her fans to dance with her on stage. “We need a few really good dancers on here,” she yelled. A few turned out to be a few dozen and she couldn’t prevent the approaching fans from trying to touch and hug her. As soon as the first notes of the old favourite hit, we got to see some embarrassingly hilarious white boy moves and girls getting down low. Costume changes, fancy choreography and a great performance – it was clear that everyone on stage worked very hard to make this a show to remember, and they certainly succeeded. And while many left the show too drunk to remember a single thing, they probably found themselves the next day singing the chorus of one of Santigold’s many catchy songs.

eunited after 14 years,” a voice announced from the Arena stage, “hardcore masterpieces: Refused!” And there was no turning back. Everyone expected greatness and Sweden’s favourite hardcore-punkers did not disappoint. The venue was dark. A large, black curtain reading ‘Refused’ covered the stage and the audience called for the band, cheering, clapping and whistling. They took their sweet time to appear, but what’s another 10 minutes when you’ve been waiting 14 years? The curtain dropped and a legendary concert began. Right off the bat, Refused made one of the most dramatic entrances this reviewer has seen at the Roskilde Festival. The band seemed to explode onto the stage as the curtain vanished before them. Lead singer Dennis Lyxzén was on top of his game, vocally and performance-wise. His showmanship was up there with the greats – he was like the Swedish punk version of Mick Jagger. It was impossible not to be in awe of this man, who jumped more times than any other performer I’ve ever seen. The band’s masterpiece album from 1998, The Shape of Punk to Come, comprised much of the set-list. Ranked in 2003 at number 13 on Kerrang! magazine’s ‘50 Most Influential Albums of All Time’, the record was celebrated in full force. Both Refused and the audience seemed to be on fire the entire time. It was like Lyxzén was possessed and noth-

‘When I Grow Up’. Predictably, the last song they played was their most well known: ‘The Lion’s Roar’, off their second album of the same name. They gave it a longer intro to keep the crowd waiting, and when they did launch into the tune, they shook their heads violently like two lions on the pride lands. Little grunts were expelled from their mouths as they shook their hair till they were sore during the extended instrumentals. They frolicked off the stage and the crowd called them back. For their encore, First Aid Kit brought up the tempo with ‘King Of The World’. The song usually features US singer/songwriter Bright Eyes, but this time, the band’s drummer provided the male vocal. The Söderbergs provided the squeals, and so did the audience. The rest of this review can be read online. Elise Beacom

ollowing in the footsteps of a blockbuster show by cumbia kings Celso Piña earlier in the evening, Bogotá darlings Bomba Estéreo delivered a performance that may well go down as one of the best of Roskilde 2012. I turned up to the show expecting the Colombian pioneers of ‘electro vacilón’ (electro tropical) to deliver a show of epic proportions, following a credible performance by warm-up DJs who did their bit to stir up the crowd with a scintillating mix of thumping electro beats riddled with pronounced rock guitar interjections. My expectations were neither too high nor too exaggerated, as the Colombians were solid from the word ‘go’, playing a concert that was both clinical and extremely entertaining all in one.

ing could stop him from rocking the hell out of the Arena stage. He crowd-surfed, sang amongst the audience, threw his microphone stand up in the air and even did a summersault followed by the splits – a truly amazing frontman. It was almost difficult to keep track of Lyxzén, as he seemed to be everywhere. During the song ‘Rather be Dead’ from the 1996 album Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent, Lyxzén suddenly got much taller, as he was standing on one of the speakers before triumphantly jumping back to the stage in perfect synch with the music. Refused is known for their sociallyconscious lyrics, so when Lyxzén said that the band’s words “mean more now than ever because the world is more f**ked up now than 14 years ago”, there was a moment when the crowd knew that this wasn’t just a concert. It was a reunion for those who believe that music can make a difference. When Lyxzén bellowed out lines like “We dance to all the wrong songs, we enjoy all the wrong moves” they suddenly gained new meaning. After the final song was finished, Lyxzén laid on the stage floor, looking pleased and strangely poetic. After a while, he rose up and thanked the audience for their support, claiming they were the reason Refused was kept alive. After that, Refused stood on stage and said farewell to a loyal and content audience. The reunion was over but the concert was forever imprinted in the minds of the audience. Refused was back. With a vengeance. The rest of this review can be read online. Claudia Santos Bomba Estéreo managed, midway through their show, to get the audience to crouch low and light their lighters in a show of solidarity, a feat that is seldom achieved at Roskilde, less so at such an early point in the proceedings. Lead singer Lilliana Saumet was on fire as she rapped fiercely and evocatively to the live acoustic backings of songs such as ‘Fuego’ and the driven ‘La boquilla.’ Backed by an impressive light show, Bomba Estéreo hardly put a foot wrong and clearly demonstrated why they are one of Colombia’s top acts of the moment. Roskilde’s Cosmopol stage has been praised by many festival goers over numerous years for it’s unique atmosphere and quaint acoustics, both of which have contributed to providing quite the ideal platform for world music year after year.

2012 ROSKILDE FESTIVAL WRAP-UP InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

13 - 19 July 2012

BEER BOWLING, public urination, gaffer tape, and of course, music. It is the alluring and repelling combination of these things that make Roskilde Festival so special. Last week marked Copenhagen Post interns Mike Hofman and Elise Beacom’s first encounter with the odious sights, delectable sounds and pungent smells of Roskilde. Here’s how it went down.

MIKE HOFMAN

Q: Roskilde is supposed to have a community vibe. Did you find the more experienced festival goers welcoming? MIKE: It started off nicely, with people on the train accompanying us to the festival check-in. However, by the end of the festival, our neighbours kept us awake by playing death metal at 5am and stole my laptop charger and Elise’s shoes. Oh well, at least they didn’t poo in our tent. ELISE: Others were a bit too friendly. One bloke told me I had nice breasts and then asked if he could touch them. Of course, I politely declined his offer, knowing my boyfriend might read this. Q: What was the craziest thing you saw? MIKE: We saw a guy being held down by about six people who had decided to cut off his beautiful long locks. You could almost see the tears in his eyes. We just laughed and took photos. ELISE: We also took photos of a girl

who had been gaffer taped to a power pole by her so-called friends. The redfaced girl was camera shy, but what could she do about it? Run? Q: What was the most disturbing thing you saw? MIKE: Seeing the can collectors nonchalantly shaking piss off the cans while our news editor was midstream nearby. ELISE: One word of advice to our fellow male campers: if you are going to pee, please do so facing away from any bystanders. Even if there’s a wire fence between us, we can still see you. And more importantly, do not make eyecontact with us while you are pissing. Q: What did you do when there were no shows on? MIKE: I thought about getting my haircut by an asylum seeker at Poor City but was too busy playing Danish drinking games. ELISE: Yeah, Mike and I played a

THURSDAY 12

variation of Kongespil using beer cans and a ball. My team was victorious because we downed our beers first. Q: What else did you eat and drink? MIKE: We had access to the media area which provided free Coke, coffee and water, and, if we were really lucky, nectarines and bananas. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time there, being the cheapskates that we are. But hey, we’re unpaid interns, so what do you expect? It was also where we befriended some middle-aged Dutch women with a sack of home-brewed liquorice vodka. ELISE: Tinned tuna and crackers were the standard meal, washed down with warm vodka or warm beer. Actually, our neighbours had the far more ingenious idea of digging a hole underneath their tent so they could store their beers and keep them cool. Q: Your most memorable moment? MIKE: The shower afterwards.

FRIDAY 13

ELISE BEACOM

ELISE: We were privy to an impromptu performance by a dozenstrong choir of men in penguin tuxedos. They performed classical versions of songs like the ‘Star Wars’ theme to a tent in our camping section. It was really beautiful and felt so out of place in such a scummy backdrop. Q: Did your tent survive? MIKE: Basically all the tents in camping section L were totally trashed, but ours stood tall and strong like a Danish Viking. ELISE: We purposely bought a tent with a Danish flag on it to reduce the chance of someone leaving smelly skid marks on it. Q: Was the smell really that bad? MIKE: YES! After it rained heavily on Friday, we had to jump over piss-puddles to get from the camping area to the stages. Actually, I accidentally jumped right in the middle of one

while wearing my canvas Vans, and had to wheel my bag through it on the way out of the grounds. ELISE: I have my suspicions that there were some nasty things lurking in the sludgy mud – it honestly smelt like faeces. Q: How are you recovering now that it’s over? MIKE: The train carriage we were in on the way home looked like a quarantine centre with everyone coughing and sneezing. And when I took a shower, the water that ran off my hair and body was grey. ELISE: I definitely got that ‘orange smell’. When I got home, my boyfriend wouldn’t come within a three metre radius of me because he said I smelled so bad. I have a really sore throat too, which I’ve heard comes from inhaling too much piss-dust.

Gerald Clayton Trio

CPH Jazzhouse; 21:00; 200kr Hailing from California, the Netherlands-born Clayton is haloed as one of the world’s most gifted pianists. His smooth, upbeat melodies capture the essence of coffee-house jazz. Performing as part of his handpicked trio – including fellow Yanks, the double-bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Jeremy Clemons – tonight’s showcase will give a brilliant insight into the international jazz scene.

Babylove & The Van Dangos

The snappy dressers’ soulful ska has made a splash on the Scandinavian festival circuit, winning the band some well-deserved critical acclaim over the past years, and giving the group a steady platform to make their foray into markets further abroad, including Germany, where they are already becoming a hit.

Kimya Dawson

Ideal Bar; 21:00; 150kr Best known for forming half of the anti-folk band Moldy Peaches with wordsmith Adam Green in the early ‘00s, Kimya’s imagination continues to pour out colourfully detailed songs about worlds populated by bigeared bears and walks in the park with ice cream and cruel ogres. Defined by her unusual vocal style, Kimya’s endless catalogue of songs chronicle a poetic portal into one quirky imagination.

D’Angelo

Store Vega; 20:00; 470kr D’Angelo has been hailed as one of the founding fathers of the neo-soul movement. Standing on the shoulders of giants such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield, his powerful gospel-inspired vocals have earned him a reputation as a modern incarnation of these legends. Taking similar themes into his songwriting as his predecessors – mostly oriented around smooth love making – he’s inherited an enormous fan-base of soul fans. DANIEL VAN DER NOON

TOP 5 SURVIVAL TIPS

13 - 19 July 2012

TOP 5 PLACES TO SWIM

CYCLE LANES

BELLEVUE BEACH: Strandvejen 340, 2900 Hellerup; free adm; www.bellevuestrandbad.dk

Look out for the cycle lanes. They’re everywhere, and not pavements, particularly around Tivoli.

Young Danes flock to this beach and recreational area in the summer.

TIVOLI RESTAURANTS

AMAGER BEACH PARK: Amager Strandvej 100, Cph S; free adm; www.amager-strand.dk

Choose carefully because while Tivoli is worth a visit, it has some of the worst restaurants in town.

SHOP OPENING TIMES Most shops are closed on Sunday, unless it’s the first or the last of the month. And they stop selling alcohol in the supermarkets (hold on to your empties as each bottle is worth a krone - enough to buy half a plastic bag) at 17:00 on Saturdays.

CYCLING Use lights when dark, stay off the pavement, and don’t run red lights. All three will land you a hefty fine.

DANGERS Don’t worry about the beggars and druggies. They’re harmless. Avoid places with biker affinities. Walk down Istedgade on the right (from the central station) and you will be propositioned.

This sprawling but well-planned beach has a sunny dune or activity for everyone including an ocean swimming structure and a long promenade.

ØSTERBRO BEACH: Svanemøllen Bay, Cph Ø; free adm With its gently sloping gradient, this attractive artificial beach provides even small children a safe place to bathe. Stroll along the 130 metre-long pier while the kids splash about in the sun. BAVNEHØJ SWIMMING POOL: Bavnehøj, Enghavevej 90, Cph SV This newly-renovated 25-metre pool and playpool will keep the whole family entertained. When you’ve had enough of swimming, enjoy a picnic in the neighbouring nature playground where the kids can dry off as they clamber up the climbing frames. ISLANDS BRYGGE & FISKETORVET: Cph S & Cph V Soak in the sun, have an ice cream or eat lunch and dinner around this free swimming holes.

TIPPING There’s no pressure to tip, particularly in cafés, but if you do, ten percent is reasonable.

CITY BIKES Look out for the free city bike racks. Like a shopping trolley you need 10 or 20 kroner, which you get back when you return it. Failing that, you often see them abandoned on street corners.

SUMMER HOLIDAYS ABROAD InOut | THE CPH POST ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE

13 - 19 July 2012

G9

All in an Oslo trip’s worth: Fromage, sculptures and ravenous cougars

IT’S 8 O’CLOCK in the morning. After barely three hours of sleep, the hoarse voice of a Danish woman wakes us up through the cabin’s radio – it’s time for breakfast. Reluctantly we hobble towards the 7 Seas restaurant. Last night we competed with Japanese tourists ravenous for seafood; this time, however, the buffet consists of Danish pastries, sandwiches and fruit. Malene fills her plate with food she’ll never be able to finish by herself. Her attitude reminds me of a stay I once made at an all-inclusive hotel in Turkey: my parents would be so embarrassed about going up for seconds that they would send my brother and I up to get them more food; the Danes, on the other hand, don’t seem to feel any kind of shame whatsoever. With a cinnamon roll and Rough Guide to Scandinavia in hand, we plan a route through the Norwegian capital. We strategically include parks on our route where we can sleep. This should be a fun day … Oslo, the oldest of the Nordic capitals, located between a fjord and forest, is breathtakingly beautiful. We start the day at the city’s new landmark: the Oslo Opera House. A spectacular feature of this iceberglike building is that it is possible

Kids Children’s Jazz Festival Toldboden, Nordre Toldbod 18, 1259 Cph. K Sat 14:0016:30; tickets 100kr, 50kr for members of Børne Jazz Klubben; www.bornejazz.dk Come and be serenaded by 2008 X Factor contestant Frederik, experience a one-man show in which Thomas Sandberg uses random objects as musical instruments, and help Rosa bake a cake when she performs the songs from the popular DR program: “Rosa og Rødderne fra Rouladegade”. SM Open workshop Kulturhuset Toldkammeret, Havnepladsen 1, Helsingør; every Sat 10:30-14:00, ends 11 Aug; tickets 30kr Kids can bring their adults to the children’s culture centre. There will be watercolours to paint with, other creative projects and lunch at the cosy café. Kids under seven must be accompanied by an adult. SM The Hero in the Fridge Marionetteatret i Kongens Have, Kronprinsessegade 21, Cph K; Fri-Sun, Wed-Thu 14:00 & 15:00; free adm Bring your kids to watch a 25-minute puppetry play about a round little boy who cannot keep up with the other children at

to walk on its marble roof. We enjoy the view and move on to Oslo’s Strøget: Karl Johans Gate, which leads to the royal palace – beautifully located in between several parks. A little nap later, I manage to convince Malene to go to Oslo’s most famous sculpture garden. I’m easily bored by sculpture gardens, but it’s hard to imagine any human – well, apart from my travelling companion – who wouldn’t happily kill an hour or two exploring Vigeland Park, which is filled with more than 200 works sculpted by Gustav Vigeland. By then, it’s already time to go back to the ferry. With another 18-hour journey in prospect, we dine at the Blue Ribbon, a restaurant with a superb a la carte menu and a fantastic wine list. While everyone is dressed up nicely, I arrive in the shorts I’ve walked in all day. We both go for the Bornholm poulard, stuffed with sundried tomatoes, pine nuts and basil, served on a bed of pea puree with mushrooms à la crème. For dessert, I take the chocolate ice cream layer cake, while Malene goes for the assiete de fromages – the cheese plate if you please. It’s incredible how you can make every dish sound highclass in French. After finishing our bottle of house wine, we go back to our cabin. While I’ve already spent a night here, I’m still in a state of utter shock to find a bunk bed and a pullout bed I imagine prisoners would sleep on. Malene doesn’t seem to care at all and falls straight back to sleep – again. I am, however, not exactly ready to settle into the luxu-

school, and is constantly teased. After a dream about being sucked into the refrigerator, he returns to school, and ultimately becomes a hero.

The cramped quarters edured by Mike and Malene gave way to the vast Vigeland Park in all it’s sculpting splendour

rious accommodation, so I meet up with my new-made friends to hit the ferry’s nightlife. We make our move to the main club, only to find out they are broadcasting the Eurovision Song Contest. Luckily we have better luck at the other club, where one of my favourite spectacles is the battle of the middle-aged – or at least, that’s what I like to call it. Whenever a party band is playing cheesy ‘60s music, you’re invariably find this one couple showing off their dance moves. If another couple has the guts to enter the dance floor, the battle is on. This time, however, it doesn’t exactly go as planned when the spectacle is

Outdoors Football Golf Lerskovvej 13, Hårlev; open April-Oct, tee off Mon-Tue & Thu 15:00-19:00, Wed 18:0019:00, Fri-Sun 10:00-19:00; tickets: over-15s 100kr, under-15s 50kr (100kr on Sat); 2015 5086, hansen@fodboldgolfen.dk; www.fodboldgolfen.dk Your kids will love this football golf course 10km south of Køge almost as much as you. The game is played on a golf course with a football, and like crazy golf, most of the holes have obstacles to negotiate. As well as the customary par 3-5s, there are also a few 2s (as short as 17m) and 6s (as long as 150m). But while a powerful kick is an advantage on some holes, this is primarily a game of finesse and accuracy. BH Nature and the Family West Amager Nature Centre; Granatvej 3-13, Kastrup; open every day 10:00-17:00; free adm; www.naturcentervestamager.dk Come and explore the birds and the bees in the animal world and the diversity of nature in Amager.

heavily disturbed by a pole-dancing woman in her 60s, who then walks over to my friend to give him a lap dance. The ferry is full of cougars. The night before a woman in her 40s came up to us, saying that hooking up would made perfect sense as she’d “already been doing it with 25-yearolds”. As the old Dutch saying goes: “You have to learn it on an old bike,” but no, I refrained. The party continues until the early hours and I realise what an amazing job I have: the tough life of a journalist …

Food & Drink Tante T Viktoriagade 6, 1655 Cph V; Mon-Sat 10:00-22:00, Sun 10:00-21:00; 3210 3610; www. tante-t.dk At everybody’s favourite Vesterbro auntie, few can resist sampling the cheery, old days atmosphere and the finest cakes in the city. On an average day the shop serves six cakes of its 30 plus recipes, courtesy of the owners’ mother, a baker of some renown. The sponges are spectacularly light. Even the brunsviger, which looks doughy, has a finesse so striking its principal ingredient must be helium. The tea’s not bad either. Served in a flamboyantly wide cup, pouring the milk in is quite cinematic, like the end of Zabriskie Point and Star Wars all rolled into one. But the star of the show must be the scones. They come in plain, chocolate chip or dried fruit varieties, and it is hard to imagine having a better cream tea in this city. BH Cornish Pasty House Studiestræde 8; 1455 Cph K; 3313 2103; www.cornishpastyhouse.dk The pasties are shipped directly from their birthplace in Cornwall, England’s wild southwestern tip, and baked in the shop ovens before serving. Fillings include lamb and mint, chicken and bacon, as well as the traditional steak pasty. The shop also serves British ‘pastries’ such as sausage rolls, pork pies, and mature cheese and bacon turnovers. AK Café Nose Wise Vestmannagade 4, Islands Brygge, Cph S; Mon-Thu 08:00– 19:00, Fri 08:00–20:00, Sat-Sun 10:00-17:00; 3296 0220; Brunch: 140kr Our brunch platter at Café Nose Wise rocked our boat from the second it hit our table. While the waiter kindly gave us a Tour de Plate, naming the delicious looking specialties, our mouths watered so badly we were tempted to shush him and swallow it all at once. Nothing was mediocre on this plate: the fig nice and juicy, the yoghurt with honey was topped with perfectly roasted almonds, the spicy roasted potatoes perfect with the Italian salami. SL

Sankt Peders Bageri Aps Sankt Peders Stræde 29; 1453 Cph K; open Mon-Fri 6:00-17:30, Sat 7:00-16:00, Sun 8:00-14:00; 3311 1129 On Wednesdays the colour of the shop is gold in honour of their bestseller, the giant Wednesday-snail or snegle. This is a huge cinnamon bun – a round spiral the size of a young child’s head, spread with sugar and cinnamon and baked golden. AK Den Franske Bogcafé Fiolstræde 16, st, 1171 Cph K; Open Mon-Fri 10:00-18:00, Sat 10:00-16:00; 3699 1692; www. denfranskebogcafe.dk This charming café offers a great value full breakfast and classic pastries, quiche lorraine, onion soup and salad with grilled goat cheese. Wine and beer are served, as well as speciality coffees. It is not only about reading and eating either, with recordings by French musicians and French films also available for purchase. AK Paludan Bogcafe Fiolstræde 10-12, 1171 Cph K; Open Mon-Fri 9:00-22:00, Sat-Sun 10:00-22:00; 3315 0675; www.paludan-cafe.dk Browse the nooks, crannies and alcoves of this book cafe, which customers need to do anyway in their search for a seat. Or simply visit www.antikvariat.net. The menu is longer than the average book café, offering dishes that include chilli con carne, baked salmon, tagliatella, and weekend brunch. AK Rayuela Fælledvej 5; 2200 Cph N; Open Mon-Sun 10:00-19:00; Tel: 3535 6674; www.rayuela.dk This café specialises in books, food and events from the Spanish-speaking world. Readings, concerts and book group meetings are all part of Rayuela’s monthly calendar. Its specialty drink is mate, the herbal infusion from the mate plant popular in South America. AK Arabica Blågårdsgade 12, Cph N; open Mon-Fri 08:30-22:00, Sat-Sun 09:00-21:00; 3537 4496 If you’re hungry, order a sandwich, soup, homemade cake or pastry – but be warned, everything is vegetarian at this cosy Nørrebro café. It serves numerous organic juices and sodas. KP

13 - 19 July 2012

Underwood Ink Ryesgade 30A, Toogtyvenulnul, Cph N;  Tue-Wed 12:0024:00, Thu-Sat 12:00- 02:00, Sun 12:00-22:00; 3535 5553 Combining books with a bar conjured up images of geek-cool and librarians in love. This was not dispelled by the couple embracing by candle light. Barely open for a few months, the bar has a much older feel, not quite old like a smoky bodega, but comfortable like one’s own living room might be. There are 600-800 titles on any given day and often they are not what you can find in the larger shops. SP Siciliansk Is Skydebanegade 3, Cph V; open daily 13:00-18:00; large 35kr, medium 29kr and small 22kr, both cones and cups; www.sicilianskis.dk; 3026 2606 Italy is famous for its ice creams, but ask them where they would go for a special ‘is’, and the answer is Sicily, which might explain why this shop employs Sicilian staff and imports its principal ingredients from Sicily with a heavy emphasis on ecological ones. The texture of the ice cream is unbelievable: chewy-looking and really creamy. Oh, and the hazelnut is fantastic. BH The Coffee Collective Jægersborggade 10, 2200 Cph N; 6015 1525 When was the last time you described the taste of your coffee? If you come here you’ll have no reason for excuses; you’ll not only want to reflect upon what you’re putting in your mouth, but also where it comes from. Directly traded from farms in Brazil, Ethiopia and Kenya, where the farmers set their own terms of trade, the select coffee is so good you’ll enjoy even that last cold swallow. AM Thiemers Magasin Tullinsgade 24; 1618 Cph V; Open Mon-Fri 11:00-17:30, Sat 11:00-14:00; Tel: 5059 5100; www.thiemersmagasin.dk Thiemers Magasin hosts poetry readings and art exhibitions in the true café spirit, although it is primarily a bookstore. The selection of magazines, books, and other odds and ends is varied and yet carefully selected. It includes classics, many with an art and design focus, as well as other editions from smaller publishing companies. AK

Pubs & Bars The Irish Rover Strøget 46, 1161 Cph K; Open daily 10:00-late; www.irishrover.dk You won’t find a more child-friendly 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 (22:00late), 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 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

Kennedy’s Irish Bar Gammel Kongevej 23, 1610 Cph V; Open Mon-Sun 12:00-02:00 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 The Dubliner Amagertorv 5, Strøget, 1160 Cph K; Opening Hours: MonSun 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 Brew Pub Vestergade 29, 1456 Cph K; restaurant open Mon-Sat 12:00-22:00, pub open Mon-Thu 12:00-24:00, Fri-Sat 12:00-02:00, Sun closed; 3332 0060; threecourse 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

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

Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade 8BC, Basement, Cph V; open Sun-Wed 15:0024:00, Thu-Fri 14:00-02:00, Sat 12:00-02:00; www.mikkeller.dk “Today, people have greater knowledge about beer but most don’t understand just how complex it really can be,’’ explains Jannik at Mikkeller. Among its 60 varieties is one that used ‘coffee that has been passed through a weasel’. JH

Southern Cross Løngangstræde 37, Cph K; open Sun-Thu 15:00-03:00, SatSun 12:00-05:00; 3311 0939 This Aussie boozer 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

Bishop’s Arms Ny Østergade 14, Cph K; MonThu 12:00-01:00, Fri-Sat 12:0003:00, Sun 12:00-23:00; 3133 0868; www.bishopsarms.com This British-style pub has more than 400 types of whisky and about 200 different beers, a library nook hidden in the back, and above-average pub food. JS

Lord Nelson Hyskenstræde 9, Cph k; open Mon 15:30-22:00, Tue-Thu 15:3002:00, Fri 15:00-02:00, Sat 12:0002:00; approx price per half litre 49-55kr; 3393 9394 Located down a small ally off the busy tourist street Strøget, the basement venue offers 14 microbrews on tap including a selection of ciders locally made from apples and pears. JHW Charlie Scott’s Skindergade 43, Cph K; MonThu 15:00-24:00, Fri & Sat 14:0003:00, Sun 14:00-22:00; 3312 1220; www.charliescotts.dk This international jazz bar is always a lively venue, whether it’s to listen to New Orleans traditional jazz or watch the football. Live bands play feature New Orleans on Tuesdays and swing on Thursday and Friday. Charlie’s Pilestræde 33, Cph K; open Mon 14:00-00:00, Tue-Wed 12:00-01:00, Thu-Sat 12:0002:00, Sun 14:00-23:00; 40-50kr per pint; www.charlies.dk Serving up ales from microbreweries across the UK, in addition to continental beers and several ciders, this bar might be the best place in Copenhagen to sip the night away. EM K-Bar Ved Stranden 20, Cph K; MonThu 16:00-01:00, Fri-Sat 16:0002:00; 3391 9222; Kirsten@kbar.dk; www.k-bar.dk The bartenders at this cocktail bar shake and stir drinks that will make you want to stay in the trendy joint off Strøget forever. KP 1105 Kristen Bernikows Gade 4, Cph K; open Wed-Thu 20:0002:00, Fri 16:00-02:00, Sat 20:0002:00, Sun-Tue upon request; www.1105.dk Boasts an award-winning bartender and a seasonal menu.

13 - 19 July 2012

Restaurants Looking back over our reviews from the last six months, here are the restaurants that have impressed us the most RetroGusto Vesterbrogade 31, Cph V; open daily 17:00-22:00; Italian; three courses 285kr; 3321 5555; www.retrogusto. dk RetroGusto serves up Italian food with a twist. Whether you order codfish with hazelnut ice cream or pork cheek with chocolate sauce, you can be certain that your dinner will be of the highest quality. All the wines are from Italian boutique vineyards, and will complement your meal perfectly. JOS Bindia Blegdamsvej 130, 2100 Cph Ø; open daily 17:00-22:30; 3543 8838; www. bindia.dk If you’re craving low-fat food that tastes good, head over to Bindia’s, where you can enjoy Indian cuisine that’s as easy on the hips as it is on the lips. From butter chicken to raita to mango lassi, a meal here will satisfy any appetite. EM Restaurant Viva Langebrogade kaj 570, Cph K; open Mon-Sun 12:00-24:00; Nordic/ French/Medi; three courses 350kr, five courses 500kr, wine 300-450kr; 2727 0505, viva@restaurantviva.dk; www.restaurantviva.dk Viva’s biggest selling point is probably the fact that it’s on a boat. Location, however, isn’t enough to keep a restaurant afloat, and the menu ensures that customers will return again and again. While the smoked potatoes are not to be missed, make sure to save room for lobster, champagne and dessert – apples. AJ Chai:Wong Thorvaldsensvej 2, Frederiksberg; open Mon-Sat 11:00-24:00; SouthEast Asian; starters 55-125kr, mains 135-195kr; www.chaiwong.dk Inspired by a trip to various Asian cities, the owners have brought authentic Asian cooking to Frederiksberg. Enjoy a lychee mojito as you study the menu, and be sure to try the prawns with rice noodles. For dessert, order the banana cake with salted coconut ice cream, then stagger home, full of good food and wine. CS Café Alma Isafjordsgade 5-7, Cph S; open MonThu 11:00-24:00, Fri 11:00-2:00; Sat 10:00-2:00, Sun 10:00-24:00; upscale café; starters 65-85kr, mains 135225kr; www.cafealma.dk Stop by Café Alma for a meal if you’re looking for a cosy night with huge servings of Danish comfort food.

ED Evita Peron Studiestræde 69, Cph K; steakhouse; open Mon-Thu 17:00-23:00, Fri-Sat 17:00-02:00; steaks 250-375 kr; 3393 9955; www.evitaperon.dk This place is all about the steak.

Beer is even included in the dessert – you can try apples poached in ale.

Stop by this takeaway joint and see for yourself. If you’re not in the mood for crispy, battered fish with thick potato wedges, try a chicken or salmon sandwich. The dish of the day is always a hit, or you can opt for salad or dessert. SB Madsvinet Enghavevej 58
, Cph V; open WedSat 18:00-24:00; rustic cuisine; 5-course taster menu 400kr, first course 150kr, following courses 90kr; 3132 3935 Come to Madsvinet and you won’t leave hungry.

AJ Madklubben Vesterbro Vesterbrogade 62, 1620 Cph V; Danish/French cuisine; open every day 17:30-24:00, kitchen closes at 22:00; 100 kr for one course, 50kr for additional courses; 3841 4143; www. bistrobooking.dk It’s not rare to be overwhelmed by pretentions explanations about ingredients and wine, but at Madklubben, you get the great food without the overblown descriptions. The clam chowder starter will get your mouth watering just in time for the generously plated mains. Remember to leave room for dessert as the liquorice ice cream with coffee cream and sprinkles comes highly recommended. MØ Taco Al Paso Strandvejen 108, Hellerup; Mexican takeaway; open Mon-Thu 10:0017:30, Fri 10:00-18:00, Sat 10:0013:00; mains: 45-90kr lunch offers: 40-60kr; 3961 9070; www.tacoalpaso.com For a reminder of sunnier days served with a heaping plate of nachos, step into Taco Al Paso where you will be greeted by a wooden parrot and bright sombreros. The quesadillas and fajitas are delicious if you want more than a snack, and the guacamole will keep you coming back for more. ClS Marv og Ben Snaregade 4, 1205 Cph K; gourmet new Nordic cuisine; open Mon-Sat 18:00-22:00; 2-course menu 275kr, 5-course menu 375kr; 3391 0191; mad@marvogben.dk; www.marvogben.dk No place in Copenhagen bakes bread or matches wine to meals as well as Marv og Ben, which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand for offering good food at affordable prices. While on a menu, the dishes may not look too innovative, once delivered to your table, the flavour and texture combinations will blow you away. Don’t believe us? Try Visit the garden, a lamb dish with savoy cabbage, red sorrel, garlic puree, and pickled elderberry seeds, and see for yourself. ED Restaurant Orangeriet Kronprinsessegade 13, Cph K; Danish cuisine; open Mon-Tue 11:3016:00, Wed-Sat 11:30-24:00, Sun 12:00-16:00, kitchen closes at 22:00; smørrebrød 70-75kr, 3-course menu 245kr; 3311 1307; www.restaurantorangeriet.dk Smørrebrod might sound like a boring meal at first, but that’s before you lay eyes on the masterpieces at Orangeriet. Here, the open-faced sandwiches come piled high with a range of toppings, from the classic roast beef to the more adventurous salmon with apple-celery remoulade. For dessert, order a box of petit fours, and enjoy the delicious sweets in pristine surroundings that scream Danish design. CS

Les Trois Cochons Værnedamsvej 10, 1619 Cph V; French cuisine; open: lunch: MonSat 12:00-14:30, dinner: Mon-Sun 17:30-24:00; 3-course menu 295kr; 3331 7055; ltc@cofoco.dk; www. cofoco.dk/ltc Bring a group of friends to this French restaurant where meals are shared by the table – a steaming platter is brought to you, and you serve yourself. The carefully prepared meals will keep you coming back. If the thought of tender chicken, crunchy beans and buttery potatoes gets your mouth watering, book a table now. DC LêLê nhà hàng Vesterbrogade 40, Cph V; Vietnamese cuisine; open Sun-Thu 17:0023:00, Fri-Sat 17:00-02:00; starters 60-125kr, mains 180-220kr; 3322 7135; ltc@cofoco.dk; www.lele. com For ten years, this restaurant has been serving affordable Vietnamese food to long queues of people. One bite of Goi du du, a papaya salad with beef and Vietnamese mint, quickly demonstrates why this place draws customers back again and again. Wash your meal down with unique cocktails, like one containing lychee, rum and a hint of chilli. JOS Bock Bistro & Vinotek Dag Hammarskjölds Alle 7, Cph Ø; Hungarian cuisine; open Mon-Sat 12:00-15:00 & 17:00-23:00; starters 85-120kr, mains 174-245kr; 3313 9194; info@bockbistro.dk; www. bockbistro.dk Look no further for Hungarian comfort food, because this bistro offers a wide range of the country’s specialties. The adventurous can try some blood sausage, and no meal is complete without a glass of Tokaji Aszu, a sweet dessert wine. PDR Cocks & Cows Gammel Strand 44, Cph K; burgers; open Mon-Thu 11:00-24:00, Fri-Sun 11:00-02:00; 78-118kr per burger, 70kr per cocktail; 6969 6000; cows@ cocks.dk; www.cocksandcows.dk Eat a burger (cow) and wash it down with a cocktail (cock). The burgers are huge, and must be eaten with a fork and knife to prevent a mess. But they’re delicious, and the vegetarian, beef, pork and chicken options mean that even the fussiest eater will find something. DC Huks Fluks Bistro & Café Gråbrødretorv 6-8, Cph K; international bistro; open Sun-Thu 10:0022:00, Fri-Sat 10:00-23:00; mains 95215kr; 3-course menu 345kr, wine 509kr; 3391 9293; info@huksfluks. dk; www.huksfluks.dk Whether you want a quick lunch or a long summer evening of wining and dining with friends, this bistro is a good choice. The food is served quickly and is of high quality, and the lamb chops, served with potato puree, will have you begging for more. MØ Kødbyen’s Fiskebar Flæsketorvet 100, Cph V; seafood; open Tue-Fri 17:30-24:00, Sat 11:0002:00, Sun 11:00-15:30; mains 195245kr, takeaway fish and chips: 100kr; 3215 5656; www.fiskebaren. dk Show up without a reservation at your own risk – in the middle of summer, this place will be busy. And for good reason. The sea scallops cooked in butter are one reason for booking a table at this Kødbyen restaurant, and the fish and chips is another. For dessert, try the rye bread ice cream, made of spiced bread, lemon gel, verbena and yoghurt. AJ

Vesterbros Originale Burgerrestaurant Istedgade 34-36, Cph V; burgers; open every day 17:00-22:00; 85-99kr per burger; 3311 3303; www.vbburger.dk Istedgade’s newest burger joint used to be a gay sauna, but now serves up delicious homemade burgers, French fries and a variety of dips. The original burger, with cheddar and bacon, is perfect to munch on the go, and vegetarians will be thrilled by the inclusion of a veggie burger on the menu. MH Oysters & Grill 
 Sjællandsgade 1B, Cph N; seafood and meat; open Mon-Sun 17:3000:00; 
 mains from 145-195kr; 7020 6171; www.cofoco.dk/oysters Start off your evening with oysters, before diving into a variety of seafood delights. The scallops will melt in your mouth, and the huge langoustines won’t stay on the table for long. Leave some room for dessert, because the lemon panna cotta with meringue is a tangy, creamy treat. EB Hercegovina Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; Croatian/ Danish cuisine; open every day 12:00-16:00 and 17:00-24:00; mains 150-240kr, dinner grill buffet 200220kr; 3315 6363; www.hercegovina.dk This restaurant has it all: free music, friendly service, beautiful surroundings, and, of course, great food that will have you practically licking your plates clean. The goulash soup with beef, vegetables, red win and spices is probably the best in Copenhagen. For mains, cut into a huge mixed meat skewer, but leave some room for the pancakes flambéed in Croatian pear liquor. JOS Tight Hyskenstræde 10, Cph K; open SunThu 11:00-22:00, Fri-Sat 11:00-23:00; French/Australian cuisine; threecourse menu 275kr; 3311 0900 What happens when an Australian and Frenchman open up a restaurant in an abandoned nightclub?

EM MASH Bredgade 20, Cph K; open: lunch: Mon-Fr 12:00-15:00, dinner: SunWed 17:30-22:00, Thu-Sat 17:30-23:00; American cuisine; mains 145-425kr; 3313 9300; www.mashsteak.dk Carnivore or not, you won’t regret eating at this American-style steakhouse – unless you’re squeamish, in which case you should avoid looking at the various cuts of meat on display. Interior design aside, MASH serves up a vast selection of steaks from around the world, and lets diners choose sauces and sides to create their perfect meal. If beef isn’t your favourite meat, seafood, chicken and numerous sides are available. JS Dragsholm Slot Dragsholm Alle 1, Hørve;
open TueSat 18:00-22:00; Danish cuisine; fivecourse menu 650kr, seven-course menu 800kr; 5965 3300; www.dragsholm-slot.dk While you may not see ghosts at Denmark’s most haunted castle, the food served in its restaurant will haunt your taste buds until you return. One bite of the starter, snørbrød wrapped around twigs and served with marmalade, or the dessert, candied mint mousse, and you’ll understand why the ‘white lady’ won’t leave the castle premises. EM

A film that shouldn’t have seen the light of day ARUN SHARMA

The Cold Light of Day (15) Dir: Mabrouk El Mechri; US thriller, 2011, 93 mins; Henry Cavill, Sigourney Weaver, Bruce Willis, Verónica Echegui

Premieres July 12 Playing nationwide

T

HE TITLE says it all. Not in a literal sense mind you, as it has no discernible relevance to the narrative of the film, but in the sense that like the film, it is so ubiquitously stale, automated, and inane, that it really isn’t worth uttering unless you happen to be a politician or a football player, in which case your aim is to reel off as many facile platitudes as you can possibly muster in order to appease the semi-slumbering masses. As the press literature proudly boasts, The Cold Light of Day is the first English language film in thirty years to be shot entirely in Spain, and while this may initially seem strangely insignificant, it does become more pertinent as the final credits roll and one realises that this titbit is in fact the most memorable thing about the film. So, if you’re looking to be part of something historic and you weren’t around to witness the fall of the Berlin Wall, then this is your chance. Cavill arrives in sunny Spain to join his family on a sailing trip. He is greeted at the airport by his sour-faced father (Willis), and following a series of picture-perfect postcard scenes smattered with a dose of familial disharmony, we sense it won’t be long before all hell breaks loose. Our suspicions are swiftly validated after the rest of the family are kidnapped, Willis (to his son’s surprise, but not ours) turns

Henry Cavill pauses for a moment to take in the Spanish backdrop and to ponder whether he has just committed career suicide out to have been a CIA agent all along, and Cavill finds himself in inhospitable foreign territory, dodging bullets, trusting no one, and battling to free his mother and younger brother from mysterious captors. This familiar scenario, with its roots in Hitchcock and more recent incarnations including Polanski’s Frantic (1988), is conceived in order to place an ordinary person into an extraordinary and heroic situation that is intensified by serial jeopardy, thus encouraging audience empathy and engagement. However, the screenplay is so utterly predictable - with car chases, running gun battles

and some rooftop acrobatics slotted in at regular intervals - and so simply devolved from a ready-made set of generic ingredients that it renders the life-and-death issues at stake for our hard-pressed hero totally meaningless. The Cold Light of Day highlights how tricky it is to judge the line between tradition and innovation when assembling a film that has such little aspiration beyond being a standard genre entry. The director does have a grasp on the formula, but clearly lacks the confidence and conviction to bring anything new to the party,

unless there are still viewers surprised by the relatively early demise of one of the top-billed actors, or who haven’t worked out that Sigourney Weaver’s fake Hollywood smile in a business suit is a clear sign of malign intentions. Despite its poor genetic heritage, the film does at least offer a valiant attempt at sketching in a troubled father-son relationship before the carnage commences, though Cavill subsequently offers little in the way of personality to an admittedly standard-issue role. Elsewhere, director El Mechri and his DoP make the most of the Spanish locations, from

the sun-splashed white of coastal communities to the labyrinthine back streets and historic squares that make Madrid an effective setting for this kind of material. At the end of the day (another fine example of vacuous football phraseology), this bog-standard, lazy, wannabe Bourne bottom-feeder simply delivers a series of thriller clichés packaged in the blandest of manners, although for this very reason it will likely be far longer than thirty years before anyone bothers attempting to emulate it, so a rare cliché it certainly is.

Eddie: the Sleepwalking Cannibal (15)

Dir: Boris Rodriquez; DK/CA horror/comedy, 2012, 90 mins; Thure Lindhart, Georgina Reilly, Stephen McHattie

Premieres July 12 Playing nationwide

D

ANISH PAINTER Lars Olufssen (Lindhardt) hasn’t had any success in a decade. In order to find peace and inspiration, he takes to the Canadian wilderness. When he becomes involved with the affairs of a local art school he meets amateur painter Eddie (Smith), a good natured,

but psychologically challenged, middle-aged man who, at night, goes sleep walking. Eddie the sleep walker is a little different from his alter-ego; he has a penchant for snacking on living things. At first, only rodents and small animals. Initially unaware of Eddie’s quirk, Lars agrees to house him while the authorities find a more permanent solution. With each of Eddie’s nighttime killing sprees, Lars becomes artistically aroused, discovering that he needs to witness more gore to inspire his paintings. The gloriously ridiculous premise could have been lifted directly from the Roger Corman classic ‘Bucket Of Blood’ where a disturbed outsider art-

ist accidentally breaks into ‘the scene’ by killing a cat. In order to meet escalating expectations, he has to kill again and again to satisfy an adoring art-cafe audience who lavish his ‘sculptures’ with praise. Here the art cafe is an art college and it’s Eddie who does the killing rather than the artist himself. Corman’s film was made for pennies and shot in half a week. However, of the two films, it’s ‘Eddie’ that feels rushed. I wanted to like this more than I did. While there are some absurdly funny moments, much of the dialogue falls flat. The first half rockets along so that you barely notice or care about the flaws (asides from a didactic

score, better suited to children’s TV), but by the final act there’s been a few too many narrative developments forced through in dialogue rather than driven by character. It’s also a cop-out to make a film about a painter and never show his work. Much of the art-related dialogue or direction is clumsy. The filmmakers seem woefully unfamiliar with the world they are depicting and apparently averse to even basic research. All of this laziness dilutes the charm they’ve built. The well-chosen cast are the film’s greatest asset but all are deserving of a comedy with more meat. MARK WALKER

13 - 19 July 2012

New this Week Free the Mind (11) Dir: Phie Ambo; DK doc, 2012, 82 mins; Richard Davidson Danish documentary following Dr Richard Davidson, the world’s leading brain scientist, as he attempts to teach three traumatised individuals how to change their personality through meditation. Thought-provoking with shining moments, though a scattered focus makes it too messy to fully enjoy. LL

Book Your Tickets Take Shelter (15) Dir: Jeff Nichols ; US drama, 2011, 120 mins; Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, Tova Stewart, Shea Wigham This understated indie offering is a gem of a film that quietly and poetically explores the pitfalls of alienation and human folly. Nichols hardly puts a foot wrong in subtly unravelling the mind of his central character while engaging his audience with the maturity of a seasoned professional. AS

Woody Allen: A Documentary Dir: Robert B Weide; US doc, 2012, 113 mins; Woody Allen, Antonio Banderas, John Cusack, Penelope Cruz, Larry David If you love Woody Allen, this is a must-see. If you don’t love Woody Allen, see it anyway. This entertaining documentary

chronicles Allen’s career from writing scripts for Sid Caesar in the 1950s to creating the starstudded Oscar-winning films we see today. You can also watch an array of stars weigh in on their favourite wacky director, including Diane Keaton, Sean Penn, Penelope Cruz and Josh Brolin. LL

Martha Marcy May Marlene (15) Dir: Sean Durkin ; US thriller, 2011, 112 mins; Elizabeth Olsen, Sarah Paulsen, Hugh Dancy Watch a brilliantly underplayed Olsen give her debut in this instant cult-status masterpiece directed by Sean Durkin. When Martha (Olsen) escapes from a hippie cult and finds her way back to her sister, her recovery is neither simple nor swift. It will leave you questioning the level of manipulation we all tolerate in our everyday lives. MW

Avoid like the Plague Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D (7) Dir: Steve Martino; US comedy, 2012, 94 mins; Ray Ramano, John Leguizamo, Jennifer Lopez, Denis Leary, Peter Dinklage, WandaSykes Though the animation is impressive, both plot and script in this fourth instalment of the money-making Ice Age franchise fall short. Sloth Sid reaches new heights of stupidity while Jennifer Lopez does her best as a misled feline marauder. Yet even a masterly voiced Peter Dinklage as a

pirate orangutan can’t save this flick from a bad case of triteness and unremedied lack of heart.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting (11) Dir: Kirk Jones; US comedy, 2012, 105 mins; Elizabeth Banks, Cameron Diaz, Anna Kendrick Prepare to keep your expectations low for the latest Hollywood ensemble rom com, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. For a film that claims to show how unpredictable life can be, the script is horribly predictable. ED

LOL (3) Dir: Lisa Azuelos; US comedy, 2012, 97 mins; Miley Cyrus, Demi Moore, Ashley Greene, Adam Sevani If a film begins with an American teenager talking about her high school and walking out in slow-motion, arm in arm with her bffs – you can put your expectations to rest. This flick hasnothing new to offer, whether it’s teenage broken hearts, hooking up in summer camp, a battle of the bands, school trips to Paris, parties and pot. MH

Dark Shadows (11) Dir: Tim Burton; US horror/comedy, 2012, 113 mins; Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter There is absolutely nothing dark about this film and the only thing lurking in the shadows is a huge amount of wasted potential. A man-made monster may

well be a feature retained from the original series, however in this case the man is Burton and the monster is Dark Shadows. AS

Also Playing The Amazing Spider-Man (11) Dir: Marc Webb; US action, 2012, 136 mins; Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Dennis Leary, Martin Sheen, Sally Field Webb’s reinterpretation of Spider-Man is a little premature, but the movie holds its own with a fresh script and a talented cast. Here’s a Spider-Man the girls will actually want to sleep with! LD

The Hunger Games (11) Dir: Gary Ross; US sci-fi, 2012, 142 mins; Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson Ross has successfully dissected and expanded the book and produced something that works as a film – so long as you’re not too precious about its origins. MH

The Avengers (11) Dir: John Whedon; US action sci-fi, 2012, 142 mins; Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston The Avengers is for Marvel what Dark Night was for DC – Whedon has scored the crowning achievement for Marvel Studio’s interconnected universe. MW

The Dictator (11)

Men in Black III (11)

Dir: Larry Charles; US comedy, 2012, 83 mins; Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, John C Reilly Cohen’s fans will recall the tepid disappointment of Ali G: Indahouse. The Dictator shares the fiction approach of that film and confirms the superiority of Cohen’s fiction/ documentery hybrids over these pure fictions. Genuinely funny moments are too few, and almost all of those aren’t politicised. MW

Dir: Barry Sonnenfeld; US action, 2012, 105 mins; Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement It’s a light, fun sci-fi adventure, with perhaps a slightly darker overture than the previous films, MiB3 is worth seeing in a theatre – if for nothing else the roar of the Apollo rocket that rumbles your chest, and the 3D which is one of the better that I have encountered. KE

Prometheus (15)

Snow White and the Huntsman (11)

Dir: Ridley Scott; US sci-fi, 2012, 126 mins; Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idres Elba, Guy Pearce There are some decent moments of horror and tension. There are also planet-sized plot holes and moments of ham-fisted stupidity. With the recent announcement that Ridley is returning to that other sci-fi masterpiece, Blade Runner, there’s a sense that in his twilight years he’s riding the coattails of his past success. MW

The Lucky One (11) Dir: Scott Hicks; US drama, 2012, 101 mins; Zac Efron, Taylor Schilling, Blythe Danner The Lucky One doesn’t deliver many plot twists, and if you have seen the trailer, you basically saw the whole film. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You know what to expect, so you can’t claim to be disappointed by it. It’s a romantic drama, so don’t expect fireworks. DC

Dir: Rupert Sanders; UK/ US action, 2012, 127 mins; Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane In a twist to the fairy tale, the huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to kill her winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen. But unfortunately, this overlong retelling of a Grimm fairy tale is short on magic. MH

21 Jump Street (11) Dir: Phil Lord & Christopher Miller; US action/comedy, 2012, 109 mins; Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Brie Larson, Dave Franco 21 Jump Street is instantly one of my top all-time favourite comedies (though I rank Office Space up there as well so take that as you will). There were numerous LOL moments, some great cameos and a refreshing ability to laugh at its own silliness. KE
