inside this week


THE IN-VOGUE 1950s is a very apt choice for the theme of this year’s Golden Days festival (see G2). Every even year, the organisers choose a time period (in 2010 it was the 1700s, in 2008 the 1920s), as opposed to a general theme (in 2011 it was faith, in 2009 the human body), and spend considerably more money remembering it. Apparently it was a time of structured lines and minimalistic approaches, and those fashion trends are currently seeing a resurgence. It’s funny, but it only feels like last week when somebody wearing that clobber would set off your weirdo alert. Now they’re the hippest swingers in town. Personally, I’ve always found the decade a desolate one. There were rebels, but there was nothing to rebel against. There was television, but not really that much to show on it. There were space rockets, but they were invariably empty bar the odd terrified ape. In retrospect, it was a decade

in which nothing much happened, like everyone was waiting for the 1960s. Elvis rocked the house but nobody seriously took up the mantle until the Beatles; Rosa Banks stopped that bus, but the Black Panthers waited for the next one; and the Korean War raised a few headlines, but it was Vietnam when everyone started taking notice. Nevertheless, there was one consistency: celebrities and their penchant for dying spectacularly in vehicle accidents. From Ricky Valance, Buddy Holly and James Dean, to Patsy Cline, Rocky Marciano and Jayne Mansfield (who was decapitated), the trend continued through both decades, providing the inspiration for the ongoing View exhibition (see G3), which intriguingly includes a series of graphite drawings that reimagine the last view of a dying musician. Immediately, we thought of Brian Jones (swimming pool ventilation unit), Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix (vomit on carpet) and Michael Hutchence (his own errection). Elsewhere, if krump is your style, you’ll appreciate the Detour Urban Dance Festival (see G9), or if Rasmus Klump is still your style guru, you’ll enjoy the Buster Film Festival (see G18). Hey, he was created in 1951 – another reason to hate the 1950s.


Golden Days Festival: The 1950s

Various venues across Greater Copenhagen; central information desk at Cph Main Library, Krystalgade 15, Cph K; ticket reservations recommended; 3542 1432,,; THE LEAVES are turning scarlet and impromptu picnics are decidedly less frequent now with August behind us. But it’s a lovely time of year all the same: time for what I consider Copenhagen’s most nuanced, colourful and intelligent festival, Golden Days. There’ll be music, and film, and the quiet art forms will have their day too – and you are blissfully not obliged to camp out in a tent downhill from people who’ve had a lot of beer. Since its founding in 1993 by a number of cultural institutions, the secretariat Golden Days has presented an annual festival in Greater Copenhagen focusing on our shared culture, now and then, and its relationship with society. The approaches have been historical (the 1700s), cultural or artistic (the Danish Golden Age) and anthropological – last year’s festival was on the essentiality of faith in today’s world. The events are the result of fruitful collaborations between the festival team and several hundred representatives of our culture. This year’s Golden Days revisits a decade that many among us have lived first-hand. It was a time when dreams filled the air and the war was over, when rebels had nothing to rebel against and family life became everything, and women’s hemlines moved in the same direction as the economy: the 1950s. You might think those days are long behind us, but actually, to the extent that the ’50s saw the birth of the modern Danish welfare state, today sees the midlife crisis of that phenomenon. In order to comprehend the intermediate decline well enough to debate its remedies (and Golden Days features some top-notch debates as well), the festival will zoom in on the decade from a record-breaking 400 different angles. Broadly speaking, this year’s events fall into five thematic categories: ‘Yellow bricks and desperate housewives’; ‘Paranoia all around’; ‘Youth living on the edge’; ‘Culture struggle – art and politics’; and ‘Historiography – for historians only?’ Note that not all events are priced. The crucial decade is, in several other ways, still with us today. In sitcoms old

Come on then, own up: which one reminds you of your mother?

pre-sexual revolution gender roles are portrayed with a touch of nostalgia. In women’s lifestyle and fashion magazines there’s a current obsession with the tailored looks of the ’50s (that innocent age before the discovery of cellulite) like the chic pencil skirts, pin curls, bolero sleeves and ‘Peter Pan’ collars. Secondhand dealers are being similarly retrospective – and delighted with the wealth of surviving merchandise from the era when the ‘luxuries of today’ literally became the ‘necessities of tomorrow’. Ten years ago, the era was memorably put under the microscope by the singer and cult figure Niels Skousen. I’m paraphrasing his historically authentic lyric ‘68’ here: “We stepped out of our comic books never anticipating the violent decades ahead. We moved into our little boxes, got everything worth having – TV sets, welfare programmes, diesel locomotives and laundromats – but not a decent world-view. And today, we just look back and scratch our heads…” So grab a festival programme at the Main Library and attend a few events. Whether art, music, dance, debate, photography or film is your thing, be sure to treat yourself to some new insights and a trip down memory lane.

Black Swan Lake

Ballet and hip-hop might not share the stage all too often, but Scandinavian break dance champions Phanatix are now bringing their very own brand of funky ballet to Vesterbro. The evening will undoubtedly feature accomplished and innovative dance, but expect comedy and laughs as well. LL

He’s alive and well in the form of Martyn Jacques of the Tiger Lillies, the court jester who has come back from the dead as a macabre musical muse to guide the audience through Republique theatre’s production of a sinful ‘Hamlet’ that is innovative, imaginative and incredible. Indeed, for a 30-minute period in the second half, it was sustained perfection – and no, I didn’t have a large one during the interval. Following its premiere in the spring, there will be just two performances only. BH



7 - 13 September 2012 Bit like Jim Morrison’s vomit Graham Dolphin: View

David Risley Gallery, Bredgade 65, Cph K; starts Sep 1, ends Oct 6; open Wed-Fri 12:00-17:00, Sat 11:00-15:00; free adm; A FIRST KISS, a birthday party, a road trip, perfect sunny days, best friends, over-cast Sundays, a funeral. All of these are memories that can be brought to life again by music. With the ability to instantly conjure up seemingly lost memories, from the great to the truly terrible, music has a hold on our lives. We will probably never meet our musical heroes, but through their words we often develop a deep personal connection to them. So when a band parts ways or an artist dies, it can be devastating. For most it is enough to sing a line or play a favourite tune. But the true fans embark on great pilgrimages to benches, recording studios, road-crossings and graves. A new exhibition from artist Graham Dolphin explores this bond we have with musicians and their deaths. As you enter the gallery, you are confronted by gently parted gates, a piece entitled ‘Gate 2011’. The piece originally commissioned for Latitude, an English music festival, takes on

Bastard – a family chronicle


Fælledparken, Cph Ø; starts Fri, ends Sep 23, performances Mon-Sat 20:00; Tickets: from 185kr,; A play with a title like ‘Bastard’ just screams family dysfunction. This is the tale of a father, his four children and their partners. Despite their distant relationship, they are all invited to the father’s upcoming wedding. It all gets a bit close to home when the children discover their father is to marry one of his son’s former sweethearts. Danish actor Waage Sandø plays the leading role in the play, which is written by Hollywood scriptwriter Richard La Gravenese, in collaboration with director Gisli Orn Gardasson. EB



Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv 9, Cph K; starts Wed, ends Sep 30, performances starts at 19:30; Tickets: from 695kr; Duration: 110 mins; in English with Danish supertitles; Most people know Georg Friedrich Händel’s Messias from traditional concerts around Christmas time. The story is about the life of Jesus from life to death. Händel wrote Messias in just 24 days, yet it is probably his most celebrated work. Australian theatre director David Freedman is behind this particular interpretation. Freedman works in an interesting way, allowing his actors to use improvisation to develop their characters. EB

a very different presence in the new space, swapping the attention of pissed-up festival-goers for pensive gallery-goers dressed in obligatory black. It is Dolphin’s own tribute to Nick Drake, a 1970s musician who found his audience only after he had died at the age of 26. The hand-made gates are a replica of those at the church entrance of Drake’s resting place and are strewn with real messages left by fans there. The detail is impressive: a sticker of a silver star, a cobweb, bird droppings (tippex), rusty drawing pins and old tape. Dolphin agonises over every detail, ensuring nothing looks out of place, and the illusion of authenticity survives. Every scrawl appears as though it was left by a different hand. In the process of adding the words, Dolphin revealed how he enjoyed constructing each letter. Lost in the detail of each one meant he would only contemplate the deeply personal nature of the tributes upon drawing back to see the whole note. Hanging on the walls, Last View is a collection of graphite sketches of grey skies with looming impersonal transient clouds, which depict the final moments of deceased musicians. In one, the back window of a Cadillac, with streaks of rain cascading down the glass and storm clouds, is the imagined final glimpse of

Modelling Agency: Inside the Curator’s Studio (working title)


IMO, Ny Carlsbergvej 68, Cph V; ends Oct 13; open Tue-Fri 12:00-17:00, Sat 12:00-15:00; Janus Høm and Martyn Reynolds explore the boundaries between artistic and curatorial practice, creating a hybrid that uses the best tools from each.

This year Toke Lykkeberg has handed over IMO and its artists’ practices to Høm and Reynolds to do what they want with the artwork. LD


We weren’t kidding: they’re gates - a fitting tribute to a musician who only found fame once he’d passed the pearly ones himself

the world for the late American country singer Hank Williams. And then there is ‘Door’, faithful recreations of the door leading to Kaftwerk’s secretive Kling Klang studio (“This is the closest I’ll get to a painting,” Dolphin told InOut), and also

of the door featured in Joy Division’s ‘Love will tear us apart’ music video. The final piece is ‘Sun Moon Sun’. Two large TVs sit in the middle of the room displaying moving screensavers of the musicians Sun-Ra and Moondog. To

experience it all, you must circle the room underneath the speakers, which simultaneously play their music. With no notes provided by the gallery, you may struggle to find any meaning in the pieces – especially the doors which, with-

out context, could have been liberated from a skip. If you’re passing by and have an extensive, almost pretentious level of music knowledge, then it’s worth a look.

Beyond the notes, this music will pierce your soul

Paolo Russo with Josefine Cronholm & Thommy Andersson Jazzhus Montmartre Store Regnegade 19A, Cph K Saturday 20:00; Tickets 285kr


N A ROUTINE flight to Frankfurt earlier this year, I turned around in my seat and was pleasantly surprised to see Paolo Russo sitting behind me. Now I’m no stranger to this Italianborn, Danish-dwelling musician, having followed his career for the last year. As we chatted our way through the maze that is Frankfurt Airport, we realised we were both on the first leg of our journey to somewhere very special. For me it was to my home country … for Russo it was

to the spiritual home of his beloved bandoneon: Argentina. Russo is currently one of the very few professional bandoneon players in Scandinavia. He describes his unique musical style as a successful meeting of southern flavours and Scandinavian landscapes with a touch of Argentinian tango. For those of you unfamiliar with the bandoneon, think of it as a free-reed musical instrument similar to an accordion with bellows and buttons at both ends. While it is of German origin, it was in Argentina that this instrument developed and became an essential instrument in tango ensembles. For Russo, playing the bandoneon isn’t simply about reading notes off a page. Talking with him you realise that he doesn’t distinguish between himself and his music. It’s as much of an expres-

sion of him as he is of it. He doesn’t just see his instrument as a form of aural beauty, but as a tool to provoke his audience to feel something beyond the notes. “Someone may get euphoric, someone may cry, someone may get pissed off – this is the beauty of music,” says Russo defiantly. For his next performance at the Jazzhus Montmartre, Russo has formed a trio together with two Swedish musicians: singer Josefine Cronholm and bass player Thommy Andersson. For a year now, the trio have sought to compose new original material together – a process Russo describes as “a challenging encounter between the Nordic soul and the Italian spirit”. He emphasises that audiences should prepare themselves to be immersed in a musical experience like no other.

“I want our music to touch each soul, elevate each spirit and hopefully get everyone to see, just for a moment, the infinity of our existence.” The trio will also use this material for their upcoming album, which is due to be recorded in the studio in mid-September. But while Russo has six very successful albums under his belt, it’s the live element of music that he enjoys the most. “There’s a humanity one gains through a live performance that can’t be found anywhere else,” Russo says. He believes audiences don’t emerge from their houses on cold evenings to hear something they could get from a CD. “With live music, you have to give your audience a form of communication that goes beyond words and expla-

nation.” If you’re familiar with Russo’s music, you’ll know that it’s an enjoyable experience, both from a technical perspective and an emotional one. The bandoneon is a rare instrument on the Scandinavian jazz scene and that’s its star quality. When you team it with a vocalist and a bass player, it’s a melding of old cultures and new rhythms, melancholic sorrowful tunes and passionate beats. It pushes the boundaries and redefines the definition of modern jazz. Live music is a powerful force, and never more so than when the musicians aim to hit audiences in the heart right away. So treat yourself to the experience of this exceptional trio this Saturday night at the Jazzhus Montmartre. EMILY MCLEAN

Montmartre; 20:00; 275kr Hailed as two of Italy’s finest fiddlers, the clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi and accordionist Gianni Coscia have made appearances at some of the most prestigious music halls in Europe during careers that have spanned almost four decades. Tapping into Italy’s folkloric roots, their classical brand of jazz captures the essence of Italy’s artistic foundations. Classical jazz isn’t of course to everyone’s taste, but this pair are regarded as musicians sure to wow the jazz community. Tonight’s concert is the second and final part of their visit here, so book up in advance to avoid disappointment.

Review Lady Gaga hhhhhh September 2 Parken ady Gaga unzipped herself out of a giant inflated vagina before singing ‘Born This Way’ – the title of her current tour – at Parken on Sunday. And her two hour and 20 minute show pretty much continued in the same vein ... all night. After tattooed, bedraggled rockers The Darkness warmed up the crowd – and their ripped frontman said it was a pleasure “to thrust ourselves upon you this evening” – a one-hour time lag followed before Gaga came onto the stage. In the centre of the stadium, men in disco-ball platform shoes, women in wigs of every shade and hue and a 16-year-old wearing only stockings and a black thong waited attentively. It was a wacky audience, from teary tween/teen diehards, to an aggressive, caterwauling woman – probably high on hallucinogens – with a chopstick-speared lime in her hair. Eventually, the curtain fell and a fairytale castle came into

Fat Boy Slim

Global; 21:00; 60kr Tonight is one of Global’s club nights led by the Nørrebro afrobeat collective WhoAreYouPeople – a cosmopolitan group of musicians and performers that have been active since the dawn of the millennium, galvanised by Copenhagen’s beat-smith Søren Skov. The 14-member band unsurprisingly boom with energy, tapping into a variety of African musical styles, from Togolese Voodoo Soul to Ethiopian jazz and Nigerian afro-beat. It’s something a little more off the beaten track for those drained by electro, house and rock nights.

Tap 1; 21:00; 312kr This English DJ, otherwise known as Norman Cook, and before that Quentin Cook, might have a number of aliases but in person he needs no introduction. Winner of ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards, the electronic music maestro, fresh from wowing the crowds at the Olympics, will get the crowd moving on Saturday, and hopefully spin tracks ‘Praise You’, ‘The RockafellerSkank’ and ‘Right Here Right Now’. The official after-party is at ZEN, Nørregade 41, from 11pm until sunrise. (EB)

the view of 36,000 people. A cavalry of soldiers and a black unicorn marched onto the stage and Gaga made her grand entrance. She appropriately sang ‘Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)’ with her face covered in a black, diamanté headpiece while she sat on top of her noble steed. It was a striking opening but the plot – if there was one – became impossible to follow as the scenario and costumes became increasingly bizarre and farfetched. The famous ‘meat dress’ made a comeback, complete with matching meat shoes and meatwearing back-up dancers. It was only the female dancers who wore meat and Gaga made a point of crushing a man in a meat grinder. Similar feminist stunts involved a tuxedo-clad man miming cunnilingus on Gaga before she shot him dead. Yes, it had it all: a confusing and convoluted mix of sex, violence, fashion, religion, and drawn-out pep talks with the crowd. This reviewer counted 12 costume changes, which made the show feel more like a theatrical performance than a concert. Nevertheless, Gaga did do justice to some of her most well-known

Escho Night: Black Dice

CPH Jazzhouse; 20:00; 80kr In the early days, the American noise-rock group were derided as pretentious New York hokum by the music media, while others were critical of the band’s seemingly aimless tones. A few years later, the noise rock outfit are now recognised as avantgarde. Credited with inspiring the likes of Animal Collective, they perform at one of the most forward-thinking jazz institutions in Europe. The night will also see some other avant-garde groups perform, including Toto – not to be mistaken with the ‘70s classic rock group – and Girlseeker.

Lille Vega; 20:00; 200kr Sweden’s pop-folk singer is of a similar mould to the likes of Belle & Sebastian, Kings of Convenience and other folksy dream-weavers. His nauseating pop music made him a darling of the indie pop scene following the release of his album, Night Falls Over Kortedala (2007). He whispers sweet nothings about the complexity of love and steals young girls’ hearts with his wooing lines of false poetry. Keep your money in your pocket for the Graham Coxon concert on Thursday evening.

Nightlife Frankie Teardrop

Lady Gaga, shown here in Bulgaria, brought plenty of spectacle but not enough song to her Parken show

tunes: ‘Judas’, ‘Poker Face’, ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Just Dance’. And slowing it down and sitting at her motorcycle/piano for ‘Hair’, Gaga showed that underneath the peroxide, sky-high shoulder pads and copious eye-liner, the 26-year-old can sing. But the singing took a backseat to the theatrics. At one point, as is routine during her shows, Gaga sat on the stage while her charges threw gifts from the pit. These offerings included decorated bras, tiny unicorns, tiaras and necklaces. In an attempt to inspire, Gaga told long anecdotes about her undying self-belief and rise to fame. She plucked teenagers from the crowd and filled them with dreams. Embarrassingly, many could not stop

crying with happiness. Gaga did make one good point when she said: “It’s all about you, not about me. Don’t worship me, worship yourself.” But the uplifting discourse was too drawn out and became sickly. It was also a bit much when she produced a Danish flag from her motorcycle and ran waving it madly across the stage catwalk. Gaga came out for a two-song encore, singing ‘The Edge Of Glory’ and ‘Marry The Night’, finishing with the same intense energy she had thrown in at the start. She took her time and gave her fans the attention they craved, but in the end, it was too much show and not enough song. Elise Beacom

Graham Coxon

Lille Vega; 21:00; 180kr The Blur guitarist went solo in the late ‘90s, taking with him the admirable riffs that made Blur the darlings of Brit-pop, turning them into something a little more personal. His side project kicked off with hits such as ‘Freakin’ Out’, which helped shepherd Brit-pop into the early naughties. Just a few months back he released A + E (2012), marking a return to the distortion-heavy production that cradled Blur’s platinum record, 13 (1999), much to the delight of Blur fans. Held in the same esteem as great guitarists like Johnny Marr, Vega can surely expect a full-house. Daniel van der Noon to a level beyond what smokey Berlin clubs offer, Black Dub System taps into the art of the genre, holding true to a similar philosophy as the dub pin-up James Blake.


Culture Box; Sat: 23:00; 70kr For a Saturday night of the more predictable variety, Culture Box is right on the money. As one of Copenhagen’s top venues for house and techno, the centrallybased club welcomes international talent of a high calibre on a weekly basis. Headlining tonight will be the London-based producer DJ Shifted who made his foray into the club scene just a few years back with the launch of his rhythm-heavy Avian Imprint. There’s always a wealth of talent among the warm-up acts and DJs playing the other stages, and if you’re big on house, your feet will be firmly rooted to the dancefloor until sunrise.

BETWEEN coming out publicly, bickering with band Oasis and uttering his dislike of being interviewed, Kele Okereke has managed to front a very successful band called Bloc Party. After the band released its first – and wellreceived – album, Silent Alarm in 2005, and two years later their second record, A Weekend in the City, Oasis took aim. Noel Gallagher called Bloc Party “indie shit” and Liam likened them to a band from a television quiz show. But despite Okereke’s shyness, the frontman lashed back, calling Oasis “the most overrated and pernicious band of all time”. Take that! Let Okereke and his band walk the talk on November 18 when they play Store Vega. Tickets are 300kr from From the UK to the US, she may be 65-years-old, but Patti Smith can still put her foot through an amplifier. The New York rocker, nicknamed the ‘Godmother of Punk’, is famous for the way she stiches poetry and rock together. When Smith lost her factory job in New Jersey, she went to the big smoke – New York – in search of work. She found a job in a bookshop and had barely enough money to feed herself. Swept up in the poetry-reading scene, and attracted to Arthur Rimbaud for his words and his beautiful face, Smith began writing poetry. And a few years on, she released the acclaimed album Horses in 1975 – if you don’t already have it, go and get it. You’ll need the education if you’re to see Smith at Vega on September 20.

NORTHERN EUROPE’S largest contemporary dance centre, Dansehallerene, sits in an old Carlsberg mineral water bottling plant. Every year, a huge range of contemporary dance events floods over its wide factory floors and high ceilings. Next weekend, the Detour Urban Dance Festival will splash down into the city and take over the space.

DANISH DESIGNERS are heralded for their ability to combine simple lines, modern materials, quality craftsmanship and functionality into elegant and timeless furniture. From the iconic egg chair to the PH lamp, Danish design is celebrated far beyond these borders. These four delightful shops-come-showrooms will put the hygge into your abode – and how!


Will the RAF CREW embrace the Battle of Britain spirit? No, they’re French

people the chance to see the creative process. An American graffiti artist, Juse One, will add some vibrancy to the foyer as he decorates the entire lobby with his street art. There will also be lectures and master-classes for enthusiasts, dancers and choreographers that aim to “demystify hip-hop as some frivolous dance to rap music and also to challenge choreographers to be inspired and to understand and interpret the hip-hop universe in a new way”. If you’re feeling adventurous, you should try the Parkour Getdown workshop. Led by the group Street Movement, the lesson will introduce you to the basics of parkour for free. It’s open to all ages and there are no special re-

quirements, so you’ll be clambering over the Rådhus in no time. Every day of the festival, the main Detour show will present the best Danish urban choreographers alongside internationally renowned ones. Expect a range of styles, from krump, junglist, new-school and popping, to contemporary African dance. Performances from dancers and groups like Toniah Pedersen, Tine Salling, Werkaholics and RAF CREW will incorporate multimedia technology and couture costumes to tell their individual stories. The festival will close on a high with more than mineral water being drunk at the after-party in the Dansehallerne foyer.

HAVING LIVED IN Denmark for a little over a year now, there are some things that I’ve become accustomed to, and others that I think I’ll just simply never get used to. One such thing is the cost of Asian food. Coming from Australia, I’m used to Asian food being quick, delicious and cheap. Unfortunately Asian food here is hardly ever cheap. Whilst I’ve visited many great Asian restaurants in Copenhagen, I’ve often left with my wallet feeling a little worse for wear. With that in mind, I’ve started a personal quest to cook more at home, but without missing out on all the great exotic flavours that one is accustomed to enjoying at a restaurant.

First up on my meal plan was a delicious Chinese stir-fry that didn’t cost an arm and a leg, which was easy and quick to make mid-week. While most of the ingredients I used for the stir-fry came from Netto, there are a few specialty items that you may have to search for or head to your local Asian food store to find. If in doubt, I’ve found that Super Brugsen and Irma usually stock quite a decent selection of key ingredients, many of which are needed in Asian dishes. While their price tags may seem a bit hefty, I would advise against opting to substitute the key ingredients as you just simply won’t get the same flavours.

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Cph N; 3535 7535; four-course menu 450kr, seven-course 775kr (with wine menu 1450kr); There are only two Thai restaurants in the whole world that have been awarded a Michelin star. One of them is in London, the other one is Kiin Kiin, which you’ll find in the heart of Nørrebro. And it’s well deserved. Kiin Kiin isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience, a place where every little detail is thought through. PDR Reinwald’s Farvergade 15, 1463 Cph K; open Mon-Sat 14:00-24:00 (kitchen closes at 22:00); 3391 8289; fivecourse menu with wine 850kr, other dishes 75-215kr; www. Serving lunch and dinner, a director’s script-length of choices confronts you at Reinwald’s. It’s a who’s who of classic French and Frenchinspired Danish dishes as well as a monthly set menu. Any chef would be proud of this. SC 1. th. Herluf Gade 9, Cph K; 3393 5770,; 1,250kr per person; 1. th. is a gourmet restaurant with a twist. Tucked away behind a hard-to-find door on the first floor to the right of a typical Copenhagen apartment, the restaurant is based around the concept of the dinner party with guests stepping into what appears to be a private apartment and then being utterly spoilt by their hosts. The monthly set menu costs 1,250kr and has a whopping ten courses, and you can tell them in advance of any food quirks you might have and they will personalise the menu for you. Terrific food, friendly and attentive service and a unique setting. CS

Cap Horn Nyhavn 21, Cph K; open Mon-Fri 10:00-00:00, Sat-Sun 09:00-00:00; 3312 8504; starters from 99kr, main courses from 139kr, desserts from 39kr; see for special events Nyhavn, the old harbour, is an idyllic area of magic and hygge what the Danes like to say when referring to anything that is cosy, charming, or delightful: all qualities Cap Horn has in abundance. Its simple menu boasts a fine selection of organic, homemade Danish fare, with a touch of seasonal influence. There were two highlights: the veal, pumpkin, mushrooms and potatoes with amazing truffle sauce (a “best ever veal experience”) and the chocolate cake (“Oh My God”), which was possibly the best chocolate cake ever! MM BioMio Halmtorvet 19, 1700 Cph V; open daily 12:00-24:00 (later Fri and Sat), kitchen open 12:00-22:00; 3331 2000; starters 75kr, mains 135kr; www. Located in an old warehouse next to trendy Kødbyen, Bio Mio is certainly unusual for conservative Copenhagen. It’s stylish without being pretentious, fast enough that you don’t go crazy waiting for food, and loud enough that you can make a racket without anyone raising an eyebrow. JH SushiTreat Fox Jarmers Plads 3, Cph V; open Mon-Thu 16:30-22:00, Fri-Sat 16:30-24:00 with Club Treat from 22:00-02:00; 3338 7030 The SushiTreat restaurant at the Hotel Fox serves the best California-style sushi in the city, offers an impressive drinks and wine card, and has a completely unique atmosphere on Friday and Saturday nights when you can order sushi until 2am while listening to some of the city’s best DJs .

NA Thai Flavours Vesterbrogade 30, Cph V; open Sun-Thu 12:00-23:00, Fri-Sat 12:00-23:30; Starters 60kr, mains 100kr; 3331 3170,; A worthy exponent of the Thai kitchen has opened recently in Vesterbro, just one block from the Planetarium and the lakes. The utterly unpretentious yet stylish Thai Flavours has a hospitable and authentic atmosphere and walls that let you breathe. KRG Saga Queen Havnegade 31, Cph K (near Nyhavn); sails twice Thu-Sat at 13:00 (lunch ) & 19:00 (dinner); reservations 4675 6460 &; www. The city’s only restaurant cruise ship, the Saga Queen offers a two-hour lunch cruise and a three-hour dinner cruise. Every table has a wonderful window view, and there’s a choice of set menus. Sometimes a meal can feel like an eternity, but here the time passed by quickly and pleasurably as we enjoyed a feast for both our eyes and our very satisfied stomachs.

Set sauce aside. In the same wok, add chopped onion and sizzle for a minute. Then add the chicken. Move the meat around in the wok for about 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile, separate veggies into 2 bowls: one for hard veggies, one for delicate leafy veggies. Add crunchy veggies to wok first. Very hard veggies should be allowed to cook until slightly soft. You may want to steam very hard veggies (like broccoli stalks) in the microwave for a minute before adding them. Add delicate veggies last. Mix in with meat and pre-prepared sauce. Stir for 3-5 minutes. Serve hot with rice or noodles.

Saxo Cafe Colbjørnsensgade 11, 1652 Cph V; open 11:00-23:00; 3888 8288,; Chinese buffet 128kr pp, dim sum dishes from 35kr Saxo’s menu is an eclectic and comforting mix of cultures, incorporating Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese buffets, Dim Sum and Vietnamese menus, and traditional Danish fare. With such a wide choice, it’s a great place to go as a group who can’t agree on a choice of cuisine. On our visit our favourites were the Dim Sums - particularly the steamed pork dumplings that are perfectly fluffy. AK Gold Prag Gothersgade 39, 1123 Cph K; open Tue-Wed 17:00-23:30; Thu-Sat 17:00-24:00; SunMon closed; appetisers from 19Kr, mains from 89kr; 3391 4712, Gold Prag has a distinct Austrian, Hungarian, Czech and Polish heritage and lives in a time of its own. The main courses are substantial, honestly cooked and rich in taste and include Vienna schnitzel with baked new potatoes and coleslaw and chicken breast topped with apricots and cheese. There are also dumplings cooked in the Austrian way and delicious goulash among the many different servings to be had. All in all it is a rough and tumble sort of place that is elegantly primitive with charisma, heartiness and austerely excellent food that perfectly accompanies classic beers and wine. SC Restaurant Dalaman Vodroffsvej 15, Frederiksberg C; Open daily 16:0024:00; 3322 1231; threecourse menus 119kr, 139kr & 159kr pp; Turkish restaurant Dalaman puts an emphasis on good food and customer satisfaction. It’s a haven for meat lovers and is popular among its clientele for the meaty mixed grill. AJ

Pubs The Irish Rover Strøget 46, Cph K; Open daily 10:00-late; You won’t find a more child-friendly pub. 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 ThursdaySunday (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 there’s an upstairs lounge area - the perfect place to relax with a view over Strøget. BH Brew Pub Vestergade 29, Cph K; open Mon-Thu 12:00-24:00, Fri-Sat 12:00-02:00, Sun closed; 3332 0060; The menu is full of hearty, homely, yet inventive dishes featuring inspired use of the same ingredients that go into the brewing process. Each dish is matched with one of Brew Pub’s own concoctions from the casks across the courtyard. AK Charlie’s Pilestræde 33, Cph K; open Mon 14:00-00:00, Tue-Wed 12:00-01:00, Thu-Sat 12:00-02:00, Sun 14:00-23:00; 40-50kr per pint; 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 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

Sankt Nikolai Restaurant & Pub Nikolajgade 18, Cph K; open Mon-Sat 16:00–00:00, Sun 13:00– 00:00; A friendly English boozer with great cask ale and cider, darts and pool (spanking new table), Englishthemed events (sign up for their monthly email), and splendid British grub (shepherd’s pie, beef and Yorkshire pud, fish and chips etc).

JHW The Dubliner Amagertorv 5, Cph K; Open Mon-Sun 10:00-late It’s the perfect place for sports fans to mingle, or for live music, which it provides every day. It serves food from 10am to 10pm, and diners can find peace from the music and sport on a table overlooking the walking street, or on the first floor balcony overlooking Amagertorv. BH The Globe Nørregade 43-45, 1165 Cph K; Opening hours vary, until 03:00 Fri-Sat Friendly service and good value food make this the perfect city pub. If it’s company you want, 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. BH The Old English Pub Vesterbrogade 2B, 1620 Cph V; Open Sun-Thu 11:30-02:30, FriSat 11:30-04:30; 3332 1921; www.

G13 If terminators ate burgers they’d choose the Governator FOOD & DRINK


7 - 13 September 2012

Designed especially for Steve Tyler apparently

centimetres over the plate you can’t even see the face of the guy eating it when he takes a bite. How does he fit it? Amazing. My Parisian season specialty is both cleverly composed and very well executed. The delicate interaction between the horseradish mayo, the tartar-minced fried beef and capers, combined with ice cold pilsner almost manages to seduce the awoken caveman lurking in the corner of my eye – pining for ‘The Governator’. But there’s no two ways about it – I’ll be back.

Cocks & Cows


haven’t been completely consumed by ‘cocks’. I order a pilsner to go with the Parisian burger, and when the lightning bolt waitress serves it, it’s waiting for me in a frozen beer mug. My inner Homer Simpson is ecstatic. Until he gets a look at the burger being served to the big guy sitting in the booth across from us. Enormous. Gigantic. In-human. It’s ‘The Governator’. My subconscious fitness instructor must have blocked my vision from detecting this beaut on the menu: double beef, double bacon, double cheddar and a crown of fried onion rings. Towering a good 2 0


I get the burger of the season, the ‘Parisian Cow’: 200 grams of fried minced beef with horseradish-mayo, romaine lettuce, capers, beetroot jelly and remoulade. You get to choose whether you want the bread to be a regular burger bun (white bread) or a wholegrain alternative. I figure I’m already having a burger, why not go all the way? And I get the white bread original plus a side order of twister fries with extra Carl Johan mushroom remoulade. All in. To accompany a good burger there’s only one beverage that seems fit to me: beer. Ice-cold beer. Fortunately Cocks & Cows


NEATLY PLACED in the cellar of one of the classic buildings on Gammel Strand, just across the canal from Thorvaldsens Museum, lies the hip burger joint Cocks & Cows. Don’t worry! The ‘Cock’ is not a fancy new ingredient for a world that has seen everything – it’s just an abbreviation. Cock-tails. At Cocks & Cows you get cocktails and burgers. At a fair price even. The night is curling into position and a light fog oozes over the canal at Gl Strand. We open the cellar door to Cocks & Cows. The light is orange and the place is humming a concentrated but relaxed tune. A smiling waitress escorts us to our seats and hands us the cocktail menu. The interior matches the vibe and the location. Crimson leather covers the seats of the classic American diner booths, and the walls have been left raw and exposed. Bricks and crimson in a basement soaked in orange. Just ten seconds after having decided which ‘cock’ to suck on while preparing our stomachs for the ‘cow’ to come, the waitress returns to take our order, and ‘zapp’, five minutes later we’ve got two tasty cocktails in front of us. Nice take-off. I go for the ‘Old Fashioned’ – bourbon, sugar, bitter and (in this case) an orange twist. The orange zest suits the classic cocktail deliciously, and it doesn’t take long before a refill is required. Feeling a heatwave approaching, my date tries the Rangulum. The precise rum, sugar and lime blend instantaneously sends her away to a tropical island. The ‘cocks’ are fair priced – and they do a really good job. By now we are slightly tipsy and our stomachs are ready to ‘get some’. Again the waitress is like a Jedi knight feeling the will of the customers. She arrives exactly when we’ve decided what to get. Smiles, notes, checks the drinks and breezes away again. You book a table on the Cocks & Cows website and a reservation equals a 90-minute slot at the restaurant (but if you feel like lingering, the cocktail bar Fugu is right next door and a recommended choice). You choose from eight different kinds of ‘cleverly’ named burgers and one rotating ‘Burger of the Season’. Political correctness has not been a priority when naming the burgers (the South American-inspired burger with guacamole and jalapeños is named ‘The Illegal’, while the name of the vegetarian burger, ‘Miss Veggie’, has a feminine prefix), but unless you are a pretty fanatic food moralist, you’ll just curve a smile and look forward to sinking your teeth into the decadent ensemble that awaits.

American bad! Marky Mark and Stewie bomb big time ARUN SHARMA

Ted (15)

Dir: Seth MacFarlane; US comedy, 2012, 106 mins; Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi

Premieres September 6 Playing nationwide


ITH A host of high profile animated TV comedies under his belt – Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad! – Seth MacFarlane has now also become the latest adult animator to make the transition to featurelength filmmaking. South Park’s Trey Parker started the trend with Cannibal! The Musical, Matt Groening’s The Simpsons Movie followed suit, and Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill creator Mike Judge now has three live-action features to his name. MacFarlane’s Ted is the story of a triangular love affair between 35-year-old John (Wahlberg), his acerbic, potty-mouthed talking bear Ted (voiced by Macfarlane himself ), and John’s long-suffering girlfriend Lori, played by Mila Kunis of Black Swan fame. A tale of Peter Pan-esque protracted male adolescence and ‘bro-versus-ho’ ethics – the subjects of seemingly every American screen comedy of the 21st century – this is a film that squarely relies on the comic potential of random flotsam and jetsam pop culture, tongue-incheek offensiveness and state-of-theart foul-mouthed puppet humour. As with much of MacFarlane’s work, it is devoid of any trace of sophistication or finesse, and is fitfully amusing thanks only to the occasional deadpan shock-value jokes offered by Mark Wahlberg’s crooked straightman performance. The silliness begins in Boston in

Calm down boys, we’ll give you an extra star for the comedic value of Wahlberg’s massive nostrils alone

the 1980s, as eight-year-old John Bennett wishes on a star for his teddy bear to come to life, and miraculously finds that his wish has been granted. Fast-forward 27 years, and John is still living with his animated bear in an elongated adolescent bachelorhood. Following a rollercoaster ride of fleeting fame and then public rejection, Ted has become a jaded, lazy layabout of a bear with a penchant for pot and prostitutes, all of which makes John’s girlfriend eager to see the bear ditched for her particular brand of stuffiness. She delivers an ultimatum to John that forces Ted to

find a place of his own and take a job in a supermarket. What follows is a series of highly inane plotlines whereby John predictably makes a mess of his relationship, the bear tries to reunite the pair but gets kidnapped, and this particular reviewer finds himself wishing he were an inanimate object with eyes made of glass, foam stuffed in his ears and a mouth firmly sewn up so as to avoid seeing, hearing or speaking of how this evil might end. MacFarlane has thus principally used the licence afforded by caricature and cartoon to satisfy his penchant

for triviality and vulgarity, and despite his huge success with audiences, or perhaps because of it, he has never managed to garnish the level of critical consideration of Parker, Groening or Matt Stone, precisely because he is not a dedicated satirist. He is instead the quintessential, much-endeared and comforting class clown, and as such he has tapped into the American psyche in much the same way as a well-worn and much-loved teddy bear might do. He relates to pop culture with an unashamed lack of criticism, studding his work with nonsequitur references, relying time and

time again on punchlines in which the reference is the sum total of the joke, and thus gratifying the viewer for sharing his nerdy, smirking, Generation X insider knowledge. There are saving graces here though, not least with regards to the depiction of the fickle nature of fame, the desire to cling to adolescence and the film’s unilateral and unswerving irreverence to pop culture and cuddly loutishness, but until MacFarlane sheds his security blanket and his smug, self-congratulatory attitude, he will remain a bear without a bite.

ELL YOUR kids to forget all about Cannes, Tribeca or Toronto, because the most exciting film festival for children is once again coming to Copenhagen. Next week Buster Film Festival will be screening over 120 films from around the world, including feature films, shorts and documentaries – all for young audiences.

With a focus on providing insight into other cultures found both within Denmark and abroad, the festival will feature films from the US, Belgium, France, Japan, Equador, Canada and India, as well as Denmark. In addition to the cinematic screenings, which will be held in cinemas, museums, culture houses and even Copenhagen Zoo, Buster will be hosting a wide range of workshops that will give kids a chance to explore different aspects of filmmaking for themselves. Whether you have the next Steven Spielberg or maybe a Meryl Streep hiding in your family, there will be something for everyone with

workshops in 3D-animation, film scenography, foley-work and acting classes. Although those films with an under 10 rating will be dubbed to Danish, all movies with a 13+ rating will be in their original language with English subtitles.

little town in Northern France copes with suddenly having 17 pregnant teenagers on their hands. Bully (14) Palads; Fri Sep 14, 12:30 Grand Teatret; Tue Sep 18, 10:15

7 - 13 September 2012

Book Your Tickets Brave (7) Dir: Mark Andrews & Brenda Chapman; US animation, 2012, 100 mins; Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters With subtle echoes of the Brother’s Grimm and a heroine that recalls both Mulan and Ronia the Robber’s Daughter, Brave is a surprisingly funny yet serious tale about identity, fate, tradition and a troubled mother-daughter relationship. KG

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

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 The Bourne Legacy (15) Dir: Tony Gilroy; US action, 2012, 135 mins; Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz, Stacey Keach When a ten-year-old passport photo has the second most screen-time after the lead actor, the film holds little promise. No other franchise entry works this hard to justify its own existence, the irony being that a decent action film is justified by decent action – of which Bourne Legacy has little. AS

Total Recall (11) Dir: Len Wiseman; US/Can sci-fi/action, 2012, 121 mins, Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy This grossly miscast sci-fi reboot is a soulless affair with a handful of neat visual ideas that are inconsistently executed by a director who, by aping giants like Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg, only succeeds in placing emphasis on his own inadequacies. MW

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

The Watch (15)

The Expendables 2

La Délicatesse (7)

Dir: Akiva Schaffer; US comedy, 2012, 102 mins; Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Rosemary DeWitt Taking its dude-ensemble cues from the comparable Horrible Bosses, this plethora of cookiecutter gags has absolutely no substance, but funny is not necessarily about substance. It’s about letting go as well. Do that and you will laugh – and more than a few times. KG

Dir: Simon West; US Action, 2012, 103 mins; Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Big Arnie Sly Stallone and other compatriots from the 2010 film The Expendables return for the 2012 sequel, joined by an even more star-studded cast of action movie legends. If you want to see old Hollywood heroes tear up the town in a fastpaced, shoot-em-dead flick loaded with its share of wry humour, make The Expendables 2 your choice this weekend. Just don’t expect much more than that. HB

Dir: David Foenkinos & Stéphane Foenkinos; Fra romance, 2012, 108 mins; Audrey Tautou, Francois Damiens 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

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

Also Playing Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry (15) Dir: Alison Klayman; US doc, 2012, 92 mins Though Klayman superficially skims several potentially fascinating topics, but the film’s accessibility and immediacy make up for most analytical shortcomings. AS


Magic Mike (15) Dir: Steven Soderbergh; US comedy, 2012, 110 mins; Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Mathew McConaughey Despite some impressive dance sequences and a star director behind the camera, there’s only so much you can accomplish with a story about male strippers ... and it’s not much. LD

Albert Nobbs(7) Dir: Rodrigo Garcia; UK/ Ireland drama, 2012, 113 mins; Glenn Close, John Banville, Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Brendan Gleeson Though Glenn Close shines in the title role, the conventional structure and didactic plot will leave you counting the minutes while hoping to be surprised before events unfold, all too often, as predicted. Albert Nobbs is not without an audience, but it’s far more likely to find it on primetime television than in selected cinemas. MW

Take This Waltz (11) Dir: Sarah Polley; Can romance, 2011, 116 mins; Michelle Williams, Seth Rogan, Luke Kirby, Sarah Silverman This cute hipster romcom is gorgeously shot and skillfully acted, though not quite cute enough to forgive the cringeworthy cookie cutter title. KG

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

Weekend (11) Dir: Andrew Haigh; UK drama, 2011, 96 mins; Tom Cullen, Chris New, Jonathan Race, Laura Freeman Haigh’s second feature moves away from the potential pigeonholing 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 reality as apposed to being larger than life. AS

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

Boardwalk Empire season two

spor t THE W OF EEK

TV3 Puls, Tue 22:00

SO HBO is launching its own Nordic channel. Makes sense as the US makes all the decent drama series. Two of these, Boardwalk Empire and Dexter (TV3 Puls, Thu 22:00), are back for their second and sixth seasons, just weeks before their brand new series debut in the US and on our computer screens. While Boardwalk continues to be top-notch and very possibly the best period drama ever, Dexter has hit a rut after four extremely entertaining series and a fifth that was only so-so. Still, both series finish with absolute sledgehammers, while the penultimate episode of Boardwalk was the finest this reviewer had seen since ‘Pine Barrens’ from series three of The Sopranos. Goes without saying we’re not going to tell you what they’re about.

If you consider yourself a fan of quality TV and aren’t squeamish, then you have to see them. They’re proof that TV has been kicking cinema’s behind for a decade. Also back for new series are Mad Men (TV3 Puls, Wed 22:00) and Merlin (SV2, Sat 18:15), while Inside Men (SV1, Sat 21:30) is a relatively acclaimed British miniseries, but its plot premise – a robbery committed by colleagues at work – is as tired a format as reality TV singing contests. Shagging can get boring as well. Ask British stand-up Jeff Leach, 27, the subject of the BBC’s Confessions of a Sex Addict, who is trying to curb his Don Juan instincts and settle down. If he really wanted to succeed, he’d cut the ‘A’ from his surname – that would warn them off.

Yeah, quicker than the sound of Ronald Reagan singing. Fortunately, the acclaimed 2011 doc Reagan (SV1, Tue 22:00 & DRK, Sun 15:35) focuses on the highs and lows of his political career, like how he won the Cold War and once claimed “trees cause more pollution than automobiles”. TV3 Puls, Tue 22:00 Boardwalk Empire season two Elsewhere, get your flags out for Last Night of the Proms (DRK, Sat 20:30); Alt for Danmark (K5, ep1: Sat 19:00, ep2: Mon 20:50) sees Americans compete against each other for a chance to meet their Danish relatives (worst prize ever?); and following the trend of interactive series, if you can join the dots of The Hunt for Mubarak’s Millions (BBC World, Sun 22:10) you could win a zillion billion quid.
