inside this week


THIS WEEK sees our last ‘summer holiday’ edition before we return to our regular format, which will see the return of the Food Blog, weekly restaurant reviews, and a lifestyle column that alternates between kids activities, the city’s museums, the Copenhagen underground scene, and Hot Tickets – a head’s up of the headliners coming to town over the next 12 months. Back this week is our TV review (see G20), a regular in the paper for the last five years that also goes into hibernation in July, essentially due to our limited resources, but also due to the tendency of the broadcasters to run repeats or garish outdoor programmes of people enjoying themselves outside, with the insinuation that you should be doing likewise. I suggested starting the TV review in 2007 within months of starting as a contributor to InOut. There were two main reasons.

Firstly, the Danish newspapers only preview films. This is all very well for somebody who only watches three movies a year, but I don’t need a quick summary of the plot of Notting Hill (yippee, it’s on TV3+ … again). What I do need, though, is to be told about any brand new TV series being broadcast before I decide to watch it – and crucially whether it’s any good. And secondly, they don’t preview stuff on SV1 and SV2 despite their schedules being packed with new British and American shows and most households getting them for free. It’s like they’re obeying rules: don’t mention what the foreign media thinks, don’t suggest tuning into a foreign channel – we’re Danish and we will damn well only watch English-language content on our own channels. Meanwhile, this week sees our first performance dance preview (see G2 for details of Two Old Guys and a Relatively Young Man), an area of the arts we regularly cover as it does not require a knowledge of Danish, a free classical music concert at Rosenborg Castle (see G3) and Pride Week (see G9). And then, it’s a total recall (see G18 for review of the remake) of the regular format next week.

We’re guessing the ‘relatively young man’ has chosen his companions because he’s on the pull – a bit like attractive girls who deliberately have ugly friends

Two Old Guys and a Relatively Young Man

Lille Carl, Dansescenen, 20 Pasteursvej, Cph V; starts Thu (16 Aug), ends 18 Aug, daily performances at 20:00; tickets 60130kr.; duration 85 minutes; 3388 8008,, THE PREVIEW CLIP on Dansehallerne’s website shows three men in grey jogging suits, each with their head stuck into what looks like a big stuffed pillow. They obviously can’t see through their pillows, and I suspect this is part of the reason why their movements are nothing but a series of bizarre jerks and unmotivated spasms. You feel like you’re watching three grotesquely supersized, blind invertebrates struggling helplessly in a hostile environment. Then, after 72 seconds of futile wriggling, they lie down for what looks like the eternal slumber. If that’s some metaphor for human existence and what’s eventually to follow, my gut reaction is to say they overdid it in terms of histrionic punch, theatrical effect, or what have you. It’s stark and relentless, a study in existential bleakness. Then I read the press material and came away with a different, more enthusiastic, point of view. Written, choreographed, and performed by Venezuela’s Luis Lara Malvacias, who in 2003 founded the New York-based theatre collective 3RD CLASS CITIZEN, Two Old Guys is nothing short of the dramatic representation of a key concept in 20th century philosophy. These guys, Malvacias and two other performers, have done

Performance Tivoli Cabaret

Tivoli, Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; ends Sep 22; performances Tue-Thu 20:00, ThuSat 20:30; Tickets: 315-415kr; duration: 180 mins, www. Complete with little round tables and singers who double as waiting staff, Cabaret at Tivoli is an evening of light-hearted kitsch entertainment. Incorporating stand-up comedy, magic, drag queens, sketches, opera and music medleys, this will be a fun variety show, whether you take advantage of the free bar or not. Most of the acts are in Danish, but the cheesy pop hits are in a language everyone can understand. EB

their metaphysical homework, and rarely has a philosophical idea – Heidegger’s Dasein (roughly representing human existence) – been wrapped in pillowcases and demanded your attention so insistently. Heidegger transformed the philosophical scene and became a celebrity overnight when in 1943 he published his magnum opus, Being in Time – which I won’t summarise here. What I will say is that Malvacias, like many others, has found in Heidegger a thinker for whom philosophy meant more than intellectual exercises concerned with artificial problems. Heidegger went straight to the heart of the matter and famously asked: “Why is there something rather than nothing?” He was not everyone’s cup of tea though; his unshakable atheism spurred him to call Christianity nothing but Platonism for the people. Faith, he said, makes you unable to question things, and necessarily shuts you off from truth. One important truth, he claimed, was that human existence was bounded off from death by a horizon of time. And beyond the horizon was not heaven, not nirvana, but just plain nothingness. It is interesting, but actually not that surprising that Heidegger should appeal to an artist of the stage looking for a new theme and a new angle. After all, the stage, representing the palpable and the essential, is somehow the orchestration of time and space – a medium for the here and now. Which brings me back to Heidegger’s refreshing sentiment that the purpose of philosophy is to intensify life itself. It should, as he put it, kick man out of the lazy attitude of his thinking and throw him back into the harshness of his

Hamlet: Film & DJ

Kronborg Castle, 3000 Helsingør; Fri 21:00; tickets 200kr,; As part of the Shakespeare at Hamlet’s Castle performances, there is a screening of Sven Gade’s Hamlet from 1921, starring sex symbol Asta Nielsen, an internationally recognised Danish diva of the era, in the title role. One of several revisionist versions that feature a female Hamlet, this film tells the story of a queen’s daughter, raised as a prince and determined to take over the throne in wake of war. Neilsen gives a luminous, intense performance that drives the entire film. Musical accompaniment comes in the form of booming Danish DJ Komet and Mike Sheridan who will create a live electronic soundtrack promising an arresting combination of old and new. MW

Tarot Fucking

destiny. This actually sounds like some theatre director’s prep talk before curtain time. The audio in Two Old Guys is an original score by the award-winning Dutch composer Ivo Bol, a specialist of sound installations whose goal is, quote-unquote, to magnify the atmosphere of lost and found sounds in order to provide a new sound world hospitable to beautiful little details. For some reason that makes me think of the preview’s three visually-impaired, cotton-clad board-treaders stranded in their hostile environment. If there were a God, he’d place them in a new sound world pronto. As to the final moral of their trials, it’s as yet anybody’s guess. Whatever they do before they drop, however, will challenge the audience in some carefully calibrated way. In part, the audience must recognise that each character is not just another face in the crowd, but rather a curious individual inscribing his own history on a canvas of time. Condemned to be human, mortal, and vulnerable, they carry, like Atlas, their history forward. I suppose Malvacias would say there are three different approaches to choreographically representing that scenario. You can consider time in terms of historical development, or as a kind of fourth and non-spatial dimension, or, finally and more poetically, as a temporary, transient thing – a slippery, undefinable mystery. All three conceptions will be engagingly represented and explored in a production charged with dance, acting, design, and installations created by an artist bent on blurring the lines between ‘observer’ and ‘observed’.

Teaterhuset, Råd- NE husstræde 13, Cph K; Sat Aug 18, 18:0024:00; tickets 60-100kr, festival pass (five days) 200kr; Copenhagen Post columnist Stuart Lynch is putting on a six-hour solo performance as part of the Vildskud (Wild Steps) theatre and performance art festival, which starts this coming Wednesday. Something of a cult performer in Denmark and Europe, Lynch will work for six hours straight in a show entitled Tarot Fucking. Based on the fallacy of the self-help culture and Lynch’s own technique of Theatre Switch Training (TST), the work runs without breaks from 6pm to midnight. The audience is able to come and go as they please, so step up for a no-holds barred evening of performance art.

10 - 16 August 2012 The Royal Danish Theatre at Rosenborg

Rosenborg Castle, Øster Voldgade 4A, Cph K; all day on Saturday Aug 18; free adm; COPENHAGEN is renowned for being northern Europe’s largest festival and concert city and with numerous events such as jazz, pop, film and ballet happening at any one time, it’s no surprise that the city has this title. The latest offering from this concert-loving town is an event that is sure to attract plenty of people, especially because unlike so many others, this concert is free! Last year no less than 140,000 people were present when the Royal Danish Theatre presented their ‘Open Air Opera’ concert at Rosenborg Castle in the centre of the city. And they are coming back again this year with one free concert on Saturday August 18 that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This yearly event gives people the opportunity to enjoy opera and ballet in the open air and under the stars – all the while taking place in the beautiful and green surroundings of Rosenborg Castle.


Coinciding with the opening of the company’s new season, this concert will be a chance for people to experience highlights from the upcoming season, including works by Puccini, Verdi, Mozart and Lehàr. With a running time of approximately three hours, including an intermission, it really is a great reason to embrace the big outdoors outside, grab a picnic blanket, food, beverages and some good company, whilst enjoying this historical place with a one-off special performance. Throughout the evening there will be performances from not only the Royal Danish Opera but also the Royal Danish Ballet, their theatre’s drama department, as well as the Royal Danish Orchestra. Overseeing the whole concert will be Italian conductor Giuliano Carella. Since making his debut in 1987, Carella has led operatic productions at some of the most prestigious venues around the world, in a wide range of repertoire from Paisiello to Ferrero, and all the most important works in the Italian and French repertoire. Hundreds of performers from The Royal Danish The-

atre will take to the stage to bring you the amazing spectacle that is ‘Open Air Opera’ at Rosenborg. While the Royal Danish Opera, which has since 1990 made a consistent effort to promote opera in an international context, have a large ensemble of gifted soloists, many of whom pursue successful careers in opera houses all over the world. And don’t miss the Royal Danish Orchestra, which is the world’s oldest orchestra of its kind. No other orchestra can boast a history so long and rich in tradition – it dates back to 1448. The Royal Danish Ballet will also be in attendance and in maintaining their company’s contemporary feel, they may very well dance anything – from Bournonville to barefoot stomps, from the abstract works of Balanchine to the action-packed, fulllength performances of John Neumeier. Being one of the few theatres in the world where opera, ballet, drama and concerts are produced by the same institution, this openair concert really is a must for lovers of the arts, and if nothing else, fresh air and a good time.

Black Keys

TAP1 Carlsberg Ny Carlsbergvej 91 1760 Cph V Monday 20:00; Tickets 340kr;


ndie rock and arena shows may seem like polar opposites, but The Black Keys have found a way to bridge the two almost seamlessly. From playing their first show as a band in front of eight people to selling out New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 15 minutes, the duo, featuring guitarist and vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, have

made it their mission to rescue rock ‘n’ roll from the likes of Nickelback. “Rock ‘n’ roll is dying because people became okay with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world,” Carney told Rolling Stone. “So they became okay with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the biggest rock band in the world.” Auerbach and Carney’s efforts to knock Nickelback off their pedestal have been fairly impressive. Both groups released new albums last year, and while Nickelback’s sold 227,000 copies in the first week of release, The Black Keys’ El Camino sold 206,000.

El Camino cemented the band as important rock musicians in a scene flooded with one-hit wonders, with Michael Hann of The Guardian writing that “they sound like a band who think they’ve made the year’s best rock ‘n’ roll album, probably because that’s exactly what they’ve done.” And while their success may appear to have occurred overnight, the duo have been recording music together since 2002 and have released seven albums since. “We were so far removed from the music and entertainment industry,” Auerbach said. “We were just trying to please ourselves.”

Brothers, the group’s 2006 release, won them a commercial breakthrough, third place on the Billboard 200 charts, and three Grammy awards, including Best Alternative Music Album. “It’s been so gradual that you don’t notice it,” Carney told The Guardian. “And then one day you look out and the audience consists of 65,000 people.” They aren’t, however, taking their success for granted and after spending years recording in basements and abandoned tyre-manufacturing factories, are struck by every perk that comes with being a rock star. “You get to bring your own sound system when you play an arena, all the

lights and visual stuff, which I think is really cool,” Auerbach told The Chicago Tribune. They’ll be bringing their show to Copenhagen next week, when they take over TAP1. With room for up to 6,000 people, the concert hall can almost be described as intimate, as The Black Keys have entertained crowds of more than 18,000 in New York City. And according to a concert review published in Canada’s National Post, “The Black Keys proved that two guys with just a guitar and a drum set are more than enough to fill an arena.” Shandana Mufti

Review Kurt Vile hhhhhh July 28 Pumpehuset


little like Pumpehuset, the venue of his concert tonight, Kurt Vile sort of slips under the radar when it comes to music. Understated, unbeknown – call it what you will – but the Philadelphian guitarist and songwriter’s tunes, penned both as a solo act and with his band the Violaters, have seemed to stay low-key and retain their indie edge whilst gaining a sizeable following. He arrives in Copenhagen on a Saturday night to a cultish crowd who are sure to be feverish about the talented man and musician – one who often exhibits two distinct sides to his personality through his music. Which will we see this evening? Danish band Petrus Katell slip the night’s proceedings into gear with their expansive yet parochial brand of folk rock. Per Løkkegaard and crew, in what turns out to be an en-

Sun Araw CPH Jazzhouse; 21:00; 90kr The artistic project of Cameron Stallones, a former member of the band’s Austinite and Magic Lantern Group – two compelling psychedelic-inspired collaborative projects – Sun Araw is devoted to breaking perceived boundaries in sound experimentation, colliding a mix of genres together into psychedelic-tinged compositions. With shades of Afro-beat, disco and hypnotic dub, his wayward compositions fit the bill for the Jazzhouse’s open ethos towards what defines jazz.

chanting set, despatch spacious, resonating percussion and Fleet Foxes-esque harmonies. Turning Pumpehuset’s stage into a church pulpit, their music shakes the soul, no doubt loosening the audience’s blood vessels ready for the main man later. Saying that though, Petrus Katell have arrived as much to share the occasion with Kurt Vila as to support him. They could be a headline act. When Vile and company do take to the stage, the ‘blood, sweat and tears’ rock ‘n’ roll that characterised their early music – as well as that of Vile’s first band, The War on Drugs – is evident. Long-haired musicians instigate a torrent of guitar riffs and drums: riffs which, were they played on a moving boat, would throw the whole vessel and its crew viciously from side to side. The audience is in raptures. This early show not only means a hell-raising set introduction, but also that the more strippeddown, desperate acoustics of Vile’s latter solo stuff are to follow. And, sure enough, as the gig crosses the midway mark, Vile is left alone on stage with his

Electric Wire Hustle Pumpehuset; 22:00; 80kr Formed in 2007, these Kiwis offer an all-encompassing brand of R & B a little left field. Featuring vocalist Mara TK, David ‘Taay Ninh’ Wright and Myele Manzanza, the trio’s off-beat recordings blend smooth vocals and abstract beats to make highly listenable tunes. Now signed to the international label BBE Records, their soulful song-craft has been on the receiving end of positive reviews from forward-looking radio stations and music publications. With just three members behind the music, it’s surprising how powerful their compositions come across. Highly recommended.

Ice Cube Pumpehuset; 21:00; 375kr Ice Cube (aka O’Shea Jackson) is one of the biggest rappers on America’s West Coast. Starting out his career alongsie heavyweights Dr Dre and NWA in the late ‘80s, with the groundbreaking album Straight Outta Compton (1988) Ice Cube went on to become one of the most influential rap figures of the 20th century. Having led an immensely successful career working with some of the biggest names in the business – Paul Oakenfold, Tupac, Gorrillaz, Xzibit and The Game to mention but a few – and a series of commercially successful provocative rap records, Ice Cube is irrefutably one of American rap’s living legends.

Cloud Nothings Amager Bio; 21:00; 140kr Springing from the post-punk infested mind of singer-songwriter Dylan Baldi, the Ohiobased power-pop group wowed the rock world with their selftitled debut, and the following Attack On Memory (2012). Once branded as a lo-fi rock outfit, the coming of their second record has aligned them closer to heavier groups such as Wavves, Titus Andronicus and Best Coast – with whom the group have also toured – and a rawer, less refined and harder brand of power-pop. Tickets already purchased for their gig at Vega will also be valid for Amager Bio.

Diz Watson Mojo Bar; 21:30; free entry Watson, a London oldboy, is hailed as one of the world’s best honky-tonk-barrel-blues pianists – of which there are probably only a few remaining. Harking back to a retro style of piano-playing from a bygone age, Watson captures the nostalgic, upbeat twinkly feel of the ‘50s in his varied repertoires. This, paired with the fact that it’s a free gig, makes it all the more alluring.

Dilated Peoples

guitar for a restless rendition of ‘Peeping Tomboy’. The lyric “I don’t wanna change, but I don’t wanna stay the same” is indicative of a sentiment surely shared by most of the single-generation onlookers: a feeling of looseendishness and wayward indecision endemic in modern society. Vile, playing beautifully, moves onto songs such as the timidly sardonic ‘Society is My Friend’ and ‘Ghost Town’, the latter turning out to be the show’s climax, with the reassembled backing band knocking

out accomplished licks and beats and the mood being taken in yet another direction. This, in a nutshell, is what Kurt Vile is all about: a tour de force of mood, angst and musical mastery. Saturday night’s gig proved that, in this day and age of contrived, big-budget entertainment franchises, that not all is lost in aesthetic. There’s still room for someone to keep their swathes of fans hooked just by being their unedited selves. Simon Cooper

Perhaps best known for their hits ‘Worst Comes to Worst’ and ‘This Way’, much of their success hasn’t been through mainstream releases, but a tidy underground reputation. Active since the mid-‘90s, their crisp style of hip-hop and street dynamic has made them trio legends of hip-hop, and their new album, Directors of Photography (2012), has only added to the hype.

BELLEVUE BEACH: Strandvejen 340, 2900 Hellerup; free adm;

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.


AMAGER BEACH PARK: Amager Strandvej 100, Cph S; free adm; This sprawling but well-planned beach has a sunny dune or activity for everyone including an ocean swimming structure and a long promenade.

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.

BAVNEHØJ SWIMMING POOL: Bavnehøj, Enghavevej 90, Cph SV

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.


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.


Beer is cheap in the bodegas. Find one in a nice square (like Vesterbro Torv on Vesterbrogade) and sit outside near those who have paid double at the fancy bars.


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.



A few blocks from Central Station, this cobblestone square is perfect for meandering into galleries and unique restaurants and is only a stone’s throw from the infamous Istedgade, from which it gets its fair share of passing trade, and Kødbyen, the city’s trendiest nightlife area.

Buy a two-zone clipcard at the airport. Three of the ten clips will get you and one other to Copenhagen Central Station and it will save you 50 percent over ten clips.

THE OLD SQUARE: Gammeltorv, 1457 Cph K Directly in the centre of the walking streets and surrounded by famous shops and restaurants, this sunny fountain square is the epicentre of any city experience.



For a lot of sightseeing, get a Copenhagen Card. It will save you at least a thousand kroner a week.

You can rent a boat, eat breakfast or dinner, and visit the towering Church of Our Savior or controversial Christiania in this Amsterdam-like canal district.

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.

Food & Drink Tante T Viktoriagade 6, 1655 Cph V; Mon-Sat 10:00-22:00, Sun 10:00-21:00; 3210 3610; www. 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; 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. 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; 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 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; 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

Underwood Ink Ryesgade 30A, Toogtyvenulnul, Cph N; Tue-Wed 12:00-24:00, Thu-Sat 12:00- 02:00, Sun 12:0022:00; 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 600800 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;; 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. 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

10 - 16 August 2012

Pubs & Bars The Irish Rover Strøget 46, 1161 Cph K; Open daily 10:00-late; 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 (22:00-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 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: 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 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. 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; 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; “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, Sat-Sun 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; 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

Sankt Nikolai Restaurant & Pub Nikolajgade 18, Cph K; open Mon-Sat 16:00–00:00, Sun 13:00– 00:00; Sankt Nikolais is a friendly English boozer where you can drink great cask ale and cider, throw a few darts and shoot some pool (spanking new table), enjoy English-themed events (sign up for their monthly email), and sample some splendid British grub (shepherd’s pie, beef and Yorkshire pubs, fish and chips etc). The first quiz of every month is quiz night and the the last Sunday of every month is ‘family day’ – a great occasion to let the blighters run riot while you indulge in some banter at the bar. BH 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.

In total need of a rewrite, recast and rethink MARK WALKER

Total Recall (11)

Dir: Len Wiseman; US/ Can sci-fi action, 2012, 121 mins; Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy

Premieres August 9 Playing nationwide


IKE THE films Minority Report and Blade Runner, Total Recall is based on an original work by legendary sci-fi writer Philip K Dick. His short story We can remember it for you wholesale was originally published in 1966 and detailed the humdrum existence of a man called Quail, who dreamt of a more exciting life out on the Martian colonies. Enlisting the services of a company called Rekal, he elects to have memories of the life he always wanted implanted into his mind. On doing so, his world is changed beyond recognition and everything he knows is thrown into question. Where the 1990 film adaptation of Dick’s short, retitled ‘Total Recall’ and directed by Paul Verhoven, kept the Mars setting, this new version by Underworld helmer Len Wisemen employs a post-apocalyptic Earth with just two habitable regions remaining. This is perhaps the only original element of the new film and as such provides an interesting departure from both the short story and the previous film: a giant elevator journeys underground, connecting northernmost Europe, now known as the United Federation of Britain, with Australia (filling in for Mars), now known as the Colony. Needless to say, with these two areas housing the entire planet’s surviving population, both are grossly over-populated. The working class colonists of the south, like protagonist Quaid (the last letter changed), are forced to commute between these two

Colin wishes he could remember a better review of his latest film hemispheres in order to earn a living wage in the northern factories of their British overlords. With little employment offered elsewhere, the workers are exploited mercilessly. The science and engineering is nonsense, but it captures the imagination and provides the film with two of its most intriguing action set-pieces: as the elevator ‘The Fall’ passes between hemispheres, gravity switches, creating some minutes of weightlessness and the perfect environment for a sci-fi shoot out. Beyond this invention though, the film falls short of both the potential of the source material and the standard set

by the previous film version. Colin Farrell, despite beefing up for the role and putting in the most credible performance on offer, has yet to convince me that he’s not the most uninteresting choice of lead action figure in Hollywood’s toy box. Similarly, one also has to ask if the director’s wife Kate Beckinsale, whose settings, since starring in her hubby’s Underworld franchise, appear to be stuck on ‘toffee-nosed-ass-kickinghell-harpy’, would still be in employment were it not for said husband: she struts, strides, slides and power-pouts her way through every scene, attain-

ing a level of naturalism to match the robot army that her character commands. In fairness though, none of the actors are given an easy ride by a script that barely makes dramatic sense when filmed, so it must surely have been baffling on paper. Even the extras look confused. Only Farrell, whose valiant attempts to embellish the pedestrian script with his roguish everyman charisma, can sometimes distract from the dialogue’s obvious shortcomings. Not counting the gross misuse of lens flare as popularised by JJ Abrams’ Star Trek, the look of the film is per-

haps its most redeeming feature, albeit pilfered unimaginatively from a dozen more reputable sources: the Colony is shamelessly Blade Runner, all dystopian dreamlike, neo-punks and acid-rain umbrellas; while London, with its multiple levels of antigrav traffic lanes, is unmistakably a distinct blend of Minority Report and Fifth Element. What you’re left with is pretty soulless: a handful of neat visual ideas, inconsistently executed by a director who, by aping giants like Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg, only succeeds in placing emphasis on his own inadequacies.

Has never been as fatally unattractive DANISH FILM INstITUTE / IN THE HEART OF COPENHAGEN

Albert Nobbs (7) Dir: Rodrigo Garcia, UK/Ireland drama, 2012, 113 minutes; Glenn Close, John Banville, Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Brendan Gleeson Premieres August 9 Playing nationwide

‘the raid: redemption’ – Film of the Month 9-19 August: One ruthless drug lord. Twenty elite cops. Thirty floors of chaos. “The most exciting action movie of the year.” Empire We present some 50 films with English dialogue or subtitles every month. See what’s on at GothersGade 55 / tel 3374 3412 / tue-Fri 9:30-22:00 / sat 12:00-22:00 / sun 12-19:30


LENN CLOSE (Dangerous Liaisons, Fatal Attraction) shines in this role as a woman who transforms herself into a male house-servant in order to survive the harsh work environment of 19th century Dublin. Keeping her identity a closely guarded secret, Albert Nobbs works as a butler in a

hotel, dreaming of a time when the money he makes will afford him his own business and someone to share his life with. Trouble comes in the form of an in−house painter−decorator (McTeer) who, due to a lack of servants’ quarters, is assigned to share Nobbs’ bed. Close gives everything that the part allows, of that there can be little argument − but is it enough to make us care? Clearly something of a pet project, Close also serves as the film’s producer and takes a co−writing credit too. It’s a shame then, that she could not elevate other elements of the film to a similar standard, so as to support her central performance, instead of distract-

ing from it. The conventional structure sign−posts several developments, leaving us counting the minutes while hoping to be surprised before events unfold, all too often, as predicted. What was an initially promising premise becomes so slavishly formulaic that there is little left to hold one’s attention, especially whenever Close is off−screen. One of the more interesting traits of Albert Nobbs’ character is his lack of life experience. We learn later of a brutal encounter in his early life that has led to his ‘closing down’ all modes of intimacy. This means his understanding of relationships are oddly immature; he understands the security offered by marriage

as a mutual agreement, but the required passion or spark of love are alien concepts. Sadly, that complexity is dulled by the film’s overbearing preference for neatness. Despite the transgender subject matter, the approach to this period drama is so classical and the plot so plodding and didactic that it feels ill at ease in this era of post−postmodernist overhauls of the genre (think Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice or Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights). Albert Nobbs is not without an audience, but it’s far more likely to find it on primetime television than in selected cinemas. MARK WALKER



10 - 16 August 2012

New this Week Step Up: Revolution (7) Dir: Scott Speer; US romance, 2012, 103 mins; Adam G Sevani, Chadd Smith, Kathryn McCormick, Ryan Guzman The fourth installment of the Step Up franchise is exactly what you would expect it to be – a bombastic dance show interrupted sporadically with godawful acting, cringeworthy dialogue and a ridiculous plot. LL

Book Your Tickets The Dark Knight Rises (11) Dir: Christopher Nolan; US action, 2012, 165 mins, Christian Bale, Tom, Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway With the arrival of Bane (Hardy), a terrorist hell-bent on ‘liberating’ Gotham before reducing it to rubble, Batman (Bale) is forced out of exile to once again take on the role as Gotham’s Dark Knight. Nolan retains the delicate balance of building a credible reality while remaining respectful to the comic book origins, and as he departs from the Batman franchise he leaves his reputation as a master filmmaker and the general state of comic book cinema in the best shape they’ve ever been. MW

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

Woody Allen: A Documentary (3) 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

Avoid like the Plague Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (15) Dir: Timur Bekmambetov; US fantasy/horror, 2012, 105 mins, Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead

This so-called film is nothing but a thinly veiled marketing fad from Hollywood’s whoremongers, a stick of quick-melting chewing gum for an ADD generation. Avoid at all costs. AS

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (7) Dir: Eric Darnell, Tom McGrath, Conrad Vernon; US comedy, 2012, 93 mins; Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer, Sacha Baron Cohen This fast-paced, sensory overload of a sequel will probably be a hit with the kids, as they once again get to follow their favourite zoo animals, this time through Europe’s most iconic cities. Though it has some impressive visuals (including some Cirque du Soleil-type madness) and a star-studded cast, it isn’t enough to make up for the cookie-cutter script and nonsensical plot. It desperately lacks the heart and wit that so clearly shone in the original movie. LL

The Cold Light of Day (15) Dir: Mabrouk El Mechri; US thriller, 2011, 93 mins; Henry Cavill, Sigourney Weaver, Bruce Willis, Veronica Echegui This bog-standard, lazy, wannabe Bourne bottom-feeder’s only surprise might be the relatively early demise of one of the top-billed actors. Otherwise it simply delivers a series of thriller clichés packaged in the blandest of manners. AS

Also Playing To Rome with Love (3) Dir: Woody Allen; US/ Ita comedy, 2012, 102 mins; Woody Allen, Alison Pill, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, Roberto Benigni This film may not be a reinvention of the Woody wheel, but compared with most romcoms out this summer, it is almost a masterpiece. MW

La Délicatesse (7) Dir: David Foenkinos & Stéphane Foenkinos; Fra romance, 2012, 108 mins; Audrey Tautou, Francois Damiens, Joséphone de Meaux Despite some shining moments, including an excellent leading man and a tastefully underused Parisian backdrop, this French rom-com remains above average but not outstanding. Audrey Tautou is her usual self, looking confused and exhausted most of the time, while other actors are criminally underused. FP

The Amazing Spider-Man (11) Dir: Marc Webb; US action, 2012, 136 mins; Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, 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

Weekend (11) Dir: Andrew Haigh; UK drama, 2011, 96 mins; Tom Cullen, Chris New, Jonathan Race, Laura Freeman Andrew Haigh’s second feature moves away from the potential pigeon-holing of gay-themed cinema and towards a universal terrain of desire, hope and disappointment. It occasionally edges towards the clichés of romantic comedy, however the director deftly steers clear of a crowd-pleasing easy-option resolution, and keeps the film rooted in a reality that squarely and knowingly avoids being larger than life and instead focuses on the quirks and textures of contemporary British life. AS

Eddie: the Sleepwalking Cannibal (15) Dir: Boris Rodriquez; DK/ CA comedy/horror, 2012, 90 mins; Thure Lindhart, Georgina Reilly, Stephen McHattie Painter Lars Olufssen (Lindhart) takes to the Canadian wilderness to find his inspiration. Watch as he becomes artistically aroused by his sleep-walking roommate’s cannibalistic activities. This Danish-Canadian, horror-comedy amalgamation has some absurdly funny moments, but secondrate dialogue and a flimsy plot turn turns this could-be stellar flick into an average one. MW

Reindeerspotting: Escape From Santaland (15) Dir: Joonas Neuvonen ; FI doc, 2011, 84 mins; Jani Raappana


Joonas Neuvonen’s debut documentary follows Jani, a 19-yearold addict and small-time thief from Lapland, Northern Finland. Neuvonen is masterful behind the camera, intercutting spellbinding shots of snowlaced landscapes with intimate close-ups of Jani’s drug abuse. The addict story may be one told many times before, but even if you don’t remember Jani, you won’t forget the sight of a reindeer race at twilight. LL

Free the Mind (11) Dir: Phie Ambo; Den 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

Snow White and the Huntsman (11) 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

SV1, Mon 21:00

ANYONE who’s ever holidayed in a Scandinavian forest and realised that if they ever commit a serious crime, this is where they’ll run to, will relate to the plot of Lilyhammer (SV1, Mon 21:00), a new Norwegian-American TV series that sees the FBI place a mafia turncoat in witness protection in a remote northern Norwegian town. The main star (and co-writer) is none other than Steven Van Zandt, Bruce Springsteen’s trusty guitarist who proved his mob credentials as Tony’s consigliere Silvio in The Sopranos. The show is popular in Norway where a million tuned in to watch the first episode in January. The LA Times was also impressed, commending Van Zandt’s “charming, semi-sweet performance” and thought that the Norwegian sup-

porting staff “underplay to good effect”. And then, barely 15 minutes later on SV2, comes The Mystery of Edwin Drood, a two-part dramatisation of Charles Dickens’ last and unfinished novel – a murder mystery that will never ever be solved. Still that hasn’t stopped crime writer Gwyneth Hughes from having a stab. The result, writes Guardian critic Lucy Mangan, a self-confessed Dickens hater, is “so very, very good” thanks to a “lovely, supple, sinewy script” and “uniformly brilliant performances”, including Freddie Fox, who “played the insufferable gilded youth Edwin Drood to such perfection that the eponymous mystery first promised to be why no-one had offed the little shit long before now”.
